Airbridges At Which Airports?

Wed Dec 26, 2001 12:11 pm

Which airports around the world have airbridges? I know mostly every semi-large to large, even some very small, airports in the US have them. Also most major ones in Europe. What about all over the world in airports like JNB and CPT and Cairo and Asian airports, other African airports, South American airports, and anything else. What airports with airbridges have those "double" airbridges? By "double", I mean the kind there are in places like FRA that branch off into two at the end.

JNB has both airbridges and buses that take you out to remote areas where you board the plane by stairs. JNB is a decent, modern airport with a good selection of shops, restaurants, banks, and other services.

CPT did not have airbridges when I was there in 2000, but a great deal of construction was going on at the time.

PLZ (Port Elizabeth, S.A.) and VFA (Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe) do not have airbridges.

I do not know about any other African airports but my guess would be that only large major gateways like Nairobi, Casablanca and Cairo would have them.

I read somewhere that the international terminal at CPT was getting air bridges. And I'm sure the domestic terminal will have soon.

There has also been a lot of talk lately here in South Africa of creating a new gateway to Durban called King Shaka International Airport, which no doubt, would have airbridges.

As for the rest of Africa, I know Abidjan International in the Ivory Coast has 4 airbridges. Looks quite a modern airport. Go here to check it out: http://www.aeria.ci/planeng.htm

We have SkyBridge @ DFW running across International Parkway from Terminal A to Terminal B, as well for Terminal C to the Hyatt Regency DFW.

In Year 2005, DFW will add another skybridge to run from Terminal C to Terminal D(Under-Construction). Not sure of Terminal E for Terminal F(Future Terminal).

I just flew CDG-ICN on a KE 744, and both airports had airbridges that divided into 2, first bridge for F/C pax and the other for Y pax. By the way, Seoul Incheon id really a nice place  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

At SJU all gates have airbridges (except AAeagle gates and island hopping airlines). It's the only airport in Puerto Rico with airbridges.

The weirdest airbridge I ever saw was at the then Trans Australia Airlines terminal at Cairns, north Queensland, Australia back in the mid 1980s.
To board you walked out of the departure lounge, crossed a service road, climbed stairs to the airbridge tower, then walked along the airbridge to the a/c but, because we were boarding a DC9-30, the airbridge sloped down to less than half the height of the stairs we had climbed!
That's north Queensland for you!
