Just wodering...what major airports (or for that matter, minor airports with scheduled service) are lacking jetbridges. (Or have a few, but no where near enough.) A few that come to mind are LIM, ANU, FCO (I know they have jetways there, but I've flown in 3 times and never used one...), BDA, LGB, and Kai Tak was certainly one. What others are there?

Not sure of the letter-code, but I flew into Kona, hawaii a couple years ago and all of the a/c there used airstairs. I didnt see any jetbridges anywhere. Also, EVV does not have any...but they only are served by connectors, with their largest a/c being a CRJ or E145!

PIE (St. Petersburg/Clearwater Int'l) does not have jetways... I think they are in the master plan, but they have not been built yet since they would require a second story to be added to the current one story facility.

Visalia (KVIS) does not have a jetbridge. In fact, the only scheduled service into VIS is United Express/Skywest props. Visalia is about 30 miles south of Fresno. The only cities served out of VIS are Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Fresno. United Express operates the LAX and FAT flights, while Bakersfield Aircharter will run the Sacramento service.

One of the busiest airports in South America, if not the busiest: CGH. Flights leaving and arriving almost every minute between 6:00 and midnight. Numerous shuttles, and a beautiful masterplan with jetways, but none in yet.

Well, PSE doesn't have any jetways and neither does BQN. However, PSE's supposed to be getting two jetways installed sometime in the future and BQN's getting a domestic terminal built which may get jetways as well.

Kona, Hawaii's code is KOA. Yes it's true not an Jetway in sight. It's fun to watch people get on and get off the JL 747 that arrives from NRT. Has anyone made the climb up the stairs to a 747? I did it the first time I flew a UA 747 from HNL in 1975. It's a hike. A DC-10 is just as bad. JL also uses a DC-10 for KOA.
Up until the mid-90s, HNL's inter-island service had no Jetways. At least the stairs for a DC-9 or 737 isn't as bad as a 747!
Isn't it amazing how we take something so simple as a Jetway for granted?

up unitl about a year and a half ago CYLW did not have a jetway....it's mainly used for Horizon's Dash-8's and the once daily Air Canada A319, while Westjet loads both 200's and 700's from roll up stairs

There seems to be a bit of confusion over EGE. Yes, there are no jetways even though they recently built a new terminal. American is easily the largest airline at EGE, but they do not fly there from DEN. Only United does, and they use BAE146s for it. All other flights into EGE from American, Continental, Delta, Northwest, and starting this year US Airways are on 757s. EGE serves Eagle/Vail and is several hours from Telluride.
