Airports With CRJ Jetways

Tue Sep 04, 2001 8:21 am

What Airports have you seen a CRJ use the jetway? I have seen jetways in use at MEM for Northwest Airlink/Express Airlines I

When I flew Midway in April, we flew on a CRJ from RDU-MIA, and boarded through a jetway with a small platform sticking from it on to the a/c.

DSM has a "low-rider" for Mesa's CRJ's, so does NWA... I don't know if Comair, SkyWest, and ASA use a jetbridge or not.

ASA and Skywest use jetways at AUS. Same ones that the Delta 737's, MD-80's and 727's use.

When American Eagle flew here, the ERJ-145's also used a jetway.

I flew PIT-MSN this weekend on an EMB145. Neither airport used jetways for the aircraft.

At MSN, I saw CO Exp, Comair (DL Connection), US Exp (Transtates) all flying regional jets sans jetways. However, UA Express (BAE), NW Airlink (Mesaba) were both using jetways.

America West is having 6 regional jet jetways installed at Port Columbus for their Express operations at CMH. American Eagle's ERJ's also use jetways at CMH, as do Northwest Airlink's CRJ's.

I flew from DCA-YYZ on Air Canada. When boarding at DCA, we didn't use a jetway. When we arrived in Toronto, we used one of the CRJ jetways. I also saw about 3 other CRJ's using the CRJ jetways as well.

The newly completed "Terminal F" in Philadelphia has jetways for all the regional jets and many of the turboprops. Pictures of it can be seen under "current construction" on the website with the link copied below.

BTV has a jetway on the new terminal for CO Express. It is different because it starts on thr ground level and goes up. I'm not sure if all are like that.

Before the construction at CMH, all of Mesa's crj's were using the jetways. Most of the Mesa crj destinations use jetways at LEAST half of the time.

On my last flight from BHM to ORD, we used a jetway with a special adaptor to board our Air Wisconsin CRJ. I think the only reason we used it was because of 3 passengers in wheel chairs. On the flight from ORD to BHM, we used the airplane stairs at both airports.

I know at SAV they use it on the CO EMBs. Not a CRJ until NW adds service to SAV. SAV is out of gates so I assume that NW CRJs are going to use the CO gate that the EMBs use.
Also, does Comair have jetways for its CRJs at CVG? I am pretty sure they do

About YYZ--note that the regional jet terminal does not have the kind of "jetways" that most people on this thread are referring to. Toronto has small covered areas extended from the mini-terminal (which look like large tool sheds) which allow passengers to board unencumbered by snow and rain. The aircraft pulls into the gate area, the connecting sleeve comes over to cover the aircraft, and the CRJ door opens down into the covered area. This is quite different from the mini-jetways used by American Eagle, America West Express and others, which are literally miniature versions of the jetways regular aircraft use--allowing the passenger to not only be covered, but board the plane in comfort. In Toronto, when you're trying to board or exit a CRJ in the dead of winter in below-zero snowy weather like I have done, you know that it's a different kind of jetway entirely.

One more note about DCA-YYZ on AC's CRJ...when boarding, AC uses the gate next to the McDonald's in the second pier of Terminal B/C and has a set of airstairs rolled up to them, for boarding in all weather. Strangely enough, in about 10 flights total, I've never had a bad day weatherwise on departure, so I don't know what they do when it rains or snows. On arrival, though, passengers enter the terminal at ground level and walk up a set of stairs to an auxiallary door for the gate (the "A" gate).

Actually the jetbridges that American Eagle in ORD uses are just normal jetbridges (not mini-jetbridges) Actually when AA finished refubishing concouse G it was suppose to be an all eagle concouse. but AA decided to add a couple of there F100 flights out of there and even Alaska 737-700 flight to Fairbanks leaves out of concouse G.
Ironically Eagle is across the alley from Air Wis and ACA and only in the last few months has (mainly Air Wis) installed jet bridges and then only for there RJ85/BAe-146's. The CRJ's and dornier 328 still board on the ramp. Must be fun during winter.

Agree with ViFlyer, the jetbridges at ORD on the AAEagle Concourse are normal size. In fact, they nearly swallow up the poor ERJs!

I have flown the United Express Route from BMI to ORD several times, nothing like trying to get on a plane in sub-zero weather!

We are having a new regional airport built in BMI (Bloomington, Il). According to plans, all boarding will be done via jetways?

I know the Dornier 328 that United Express flys sits pretty low to the ground, will this require a "special" jetway?

Rgds,

Yeah, at BTV I noticed there were a lot of jetways for the airlines. At BOS, I have seen Midway use a Jetway, but US Airways, Delta, and American all do not use jetways at BOS.

well I actually work for eagle and about 80% of the destionations we got to on the ERJ out of ORD use jetbridges, the only exceptions are DBQ, BMI, AZO, ORF, ORH, GRR (but they finally fixed there's), EVV,GRB,PWM,PIA,SAW. But Ironically out of LGA and BOS most of their destinations don't use jet bridges and out of DFW about 60% don't either, only ORD are you more than likely to get on via a jet bridge and get off on one too.

I'm not sure whether this is just an "in construction" state of things, but I have seen those jetways at the new A Terminal that's being built at BRU getting *very* low to the ground, indeed! Maybe they will be CRJ compatible...?
Preliminary as well as incomplete information, but still. I figured I'd give it a go.

Best regards,

hey Hypermike,

How was your US Airways Express experience into MSN? I actually work there and we had a lot of trouble this past weekend. Hope you got around most of it.

I've been through PHL's concourse F several times in the past month, and have been very impressed with that concourse. (Almost reminds one actually of an airport designed for children as everything is smaller, i.e. only 12 seats in a gate area that is a fourth the size of a conventional gate area, and "Customer Service Desk that only has two positions instead of 5-10).

In any case, it is a sharp looking area, and provides pax with a "ground's eye view" of the operation through the large floor - cieling windows throughout the concoruse. Overall, an A++ goes to PHL for ability to accomodate both RJs and props.

CVG does not have jetways. They park at a canopy. Its pretty bad when the wheelchair passenger had to get unloaded in the rain! I fly with mainline carriers to avoid that.

America West Express (Mesa Air) CRJs use jetways here in Colorado Springs (COS).

In Denver (DEN), the CRJs don't use jetways, however they are building a 36-gate commuter terminal which will have special "mini" jetways which will be compatible with planes as small as the Beechcraft 1900D to as large as the BAe 146/Avro RJ.
