I've always wondered about this when walking down the jetway on to an airplane. Are there companies that solely manufacture jetways, or are they constructed custom onsite from raw materials?

I would presume that a few companies manufacture them and then ship them to whatever airport needs them, but I've never noticed any name or manufacturer anywhere on the jetway. If they are made by a company, how are they shipped to the airport? Do they arrive in large pieces on a tractor-trailer truck, or is it many small pieces that have to be put together on site?

I've never seen a jetway on a truck, so I'd presume the latter. However, I could be wrong. So what's the case?

Thanks for pointing that website out. Apparently there are jetway manufacturers. So now I have another question. Does anyone know who made the jetways in C-3 at EWR? Does the airline (in this case, CO) choose something like that, or does the airport?

Yes a New Zealand company based in Lower Hutt in Wellington builds jetways. The company supplies Jetways all around the world.

The airport company would decide as they would own the terminal and the Jetways. If an airline is the sole user of a gate then the airline would help pay for the Jetway as the airline would have first rights to the Jetway

I have seen a Jetway on a flatbead semi-truck before on the interstate next to LIT. It must have been about a year ago.
