Hey Guys:

I saw the picture below and I couldn't help but wonder what the grey "HSBC" building is for that is between the first and second half of the jetway.

It's branding, advertising on the jetway node.

The building itself contains a computer for ground staff, newspapers, an elevator and stairs down to the ramp.

Cheers

You better duck  Wink

As people have said, its what's called the Node. It links the movable part of the jet-bridge to the part connected to the terminal. Its done that way for 2 reasons.

1. There is a 2 lane road underneath now for transfer buses and coaching flights, as well as general airport traffic so the bridge is extended a little more than other ones.

2. There is now a small room on the ground floor for the Turnaround managers. Much better for them in bad weather, and it contains a computer terminal for their use.
