Thats hardly a "problem". Even thought Minecraft looks like a 8 bit game that doesn't need any graphics card to run, it does… hard. Which will produce lots of heat. Nothing much you can do, especially since you are on a MBA which runs hotter than other Macs since it packs so much into such a small space.

The one thing that you can do that will help a little bit is to install,Optifine
Upside to that is that it also will improve your FPS, as it modifies the games rendering engine for better performance.
