I am curious to know what regionals use the jet bridges at your airport? At my local airport, TVC (Traverse City Cherry Capital Airport)

AE ERJ's have their own jet bridge. Although, if there are more than one aircraft there at the same time, then obviously they dont have a choice but to use stairs.

Air Wisconsin doesnt. The CRJ's DO328's and occasional Avros have to use stairs. They dont have a jet bridge of their own. Would they use one if they had it or is it standard for Air Wisconsin not to use jet briges anyway?

Express Airlines 1 CRJ doesnt use it. I think this is standard at all airports.


I would like to hear about your airport. We are getting a new terminal soon and I am wondering if Comair, Continental Express, or any others use jet bridges...

Some of Air Canada's CRJ's use Jet Bridges. Here in Winnipeg (YWG) they do most of the time, but we only have one CRJ here at a time and no ERJ's.

AC_A340 reminded me: Air Canada's subsidiary Air BC, I think, uses jet bridges at DIA for their BAe-146s as well.

At Rochester, New York: (ROC)

Midway Airlines CRJ's use a jetbridge. Til Wednesday when they leave the market.

American Eagle ERJ's use stairs.

Continental Express ERJ's use a jetbridge. Continental added a second jetbridge in mid-2000 although they only have ERJ's to Newark. They fly ATR's to CLE and B1900's elsewhere. These do not use the other jetbridge.

Comair CRJ's use stairs, although Delta has a jetbridge at the Comair gate. When ACA DRJ's came to ROC before the LGA Slottery, they used stairs.

Northwest Airlink ARJ's use a jetbridge that is also used by DC-9s and (when they were using them) 722's.

At DCA:

All US Airways Express a/c including a large number of ERJ's park remotely and use stairs.
I've boarded an American Eagle ATR at DCA on a jetbridge but don't know if AE uses ERJ's at all there. Skyway DRJ's use stairs.
Air Canada CRJ's use stairs.

I saw Midway using a jetbridge at DCA recently with their CRJs. It was on the old "satellite" concourse on the south end of DCA.

Well we don't have too many RJ's here in Southern California. In fact, the only ones we do get are the SkyWest flights out of SNA, going to SLC and you still have to hike across the tarmac to get to the plane.

LAX, ONT, SAN, BUR, LGB have no RJ flights. The closest airport with any reasonable amount of RJ action is FAT, and there'll be no jetways there for at least a couple more years.

At CLE:

Air Canada or Air Ontario: CRJ or Dash-8, no jet bridge

American Eagle Airlines: ERJs, jet bridges used

Atlantic Coast Airlines/United Express: CRJ, no jet bridge
Atlantic Coast Airlines/United Express: J41, no jet bridge

Atlantic Southeast Airlines: CRJ, no jet bridge

Chautauqua Airlines/USAirways Express (to PHL): ERJ, no jet bridge
Chautauqua Airlines/USAirways Express (to PIT): Saab 340A, no jet bridge

Continental Express: ERJs at C Concourse, jet bridges used
Continental Express: ERJs at D Concourse, west side, jet bridges used
Continental Express: ERJs at D Concourse, east side, no jet bridges
Continental Express: ATRs and B1900s, no jet bridges

Comair: CRJ, no jet bridge

Mesa Airlines/USAirways Express (to CVG): CRJ, no jet bridge

Skyway Airlines/Midwest Express Connection: Do328JET or B1900, no jet bridge

In summary, only American Eagle and some Continental Express, and onlyERJs, get jet bridges.

Mobile Regional Airport:

Continental Express: ERJ's all use jetbridge.
Delta Air Lines: ASA uses Fire Stairs, Comair uses the Delta jetbridge with a special stairwell hooked to the end, leading to the ramp. ASA sometimes will use this also.

Northwest Airlink: Fire Stairs at the end of the concourse.
United Express: Stairs
USAirways Express: Stairs

The Turbo-Walk is used when wheelchairs are on the flights. This is a ramp that hooks up to the RJ, and leads to the ramp.

Gulfport/Biloxi

ASA/Delta uses the ramp for their ATR/EMB. The CRJ uses the jetbridge most of the time.

Continental Express uses stairs.

AirTran, Southeast, and Northwest use the jetbridges.

Thanks guys. When my airports (TVC) new terminal opens here is what I am hearing the jet bridge assignments will be...

NW and affiliates X2 (Express Airlines 1 doesnt use them now. Just the Mesaba Avros and NW flights use them).

American Eagle X1

Air Wisconsin may have one, they dont now though.

There will be four or five jet bridges (I have seen two different drawings depicting both  Confused) and two "regular" gates.

Now... Do airlines ever have the "If you want us, we get a jet bridge or we dont come" attitude? I guess I am just wondering if not having a jet bridge would stop any new airlines from serving the market. Any opinions?

Thanks again.

Matt D-
You're correct that we here at FAT have our fair share of RJ's. In fact in Sept. we're getting CRJ's to SFO, replacing the Brasilias. One clarification-- we will have RJ capable jet bridges when the new terminal is completed about 10 months from now.

Air Canada's CRJs use jetbridges at YYZ, as do SkyWest's at BOI.

Personally I prefer walking across the ramp to board RJs.

They got a couple of those little covered-walkway-type "mini-jetbridges" on the regionals end of the transborder pier,at YUL. Though they'll probably have something fancier, more permanent-looking and more numerous too, I guess, when the new transborder pier's finished in another year and a half or so.

Ok, now, would an airline not come into an airport because they cannot use a jet bridge, even if they have they have the capabilities to use stairs?

No I doubt that, though it is a small accommodation that the biz travel passengers would remember, or at least not fuss about it missing, especially if the weather were cold, rainy, snowy, when they arrived.

At BDL, COEX uses jetways for erjs. AWEx, which shares one of continental's gates, puts stairs up to the end of the jetway. Midway uses the jetway for the CRJ. USEx & AEagle only fly turboprops and board through stairs at the end of the jetway, like AWEx & COEx's turboprops.

At DTW the NW ARJ and CRJ use jetbridges, the Saab 340's dont. Comair CRJ uses a jetbridge.

Comair doesnt use jet bridges at all airports though do they? I seem to remember photos seeing them using stairs. Blue Ridge doesnt use them at IAD, but, something tells me that at other airports (the ones that UAL is dumping, like MBS) that they will use them. There is a jet bridge available. I dont think they would let it goto waste.
