Smallest Airports With Jetways

Fri Oct 22, 2004 1:46 pm

To supplement the recent thread about the largest airports without jetways, what are some of the smallest airports WITH jetways? MFR comes to mind with its single jetway....

well actually GFK has 2 jetways, gate 1 and 2... gate 1 is used by DC-9s... gate 2 is used by the Avro's ... the Saab parks to the right of gate 1 and people walk into the terminal...

BPT has 3! jetways!!! All brand new but only two airlines serve it! Only one of the two can even use the jetways.

ASA (EV) serves BPT 3 times daily from DFW with 40-seat CRJ200's

Skywest (Continental Connection) from IAH with 30-seat EMB-120's

*ASA switches it's service in Feb'05 to ATL when DL Connection pulls out of DFW*

Also I seem to remember that Columbus, Ga had a single jetway when DL used to fly there from ATL, now it's ASA served with ATR-72's. I haven't seen anyone there use the jetway.

Yeah GFK is what immediately came to my mind. It is the smallest commercial airport I have ever been to period, let alone with jetways. I thought, however, we pulled up to Gate 2 on my NW DC-9...maybe I was wrong, that was 3 years ago so I could be. And then on the way out was on a Saab 340, thus no gate.

PHF - In Newport News VA, It's used by Airtran. Delta Connection and USAirways use Stairs to Board. Also Maui comes to mind. I think It only has a one or two jetways.

Ithaca, ITH has one jetway when US flew there on DC-9s and 737's. Sadly they were replace by RJs so now they have no use unless another carrier comes in with larger mainline jets.

ABI has two jetways, but only one is generally used ... AAEagle flies SF3s and ERJs which can use the jetways, but CoConnection/Skywest's EMB-120s can't use them.

Charlottesville, VA isn't a huge airport that has a jetway at the Delta gate...I don't know if Delta actually uses it or not though.

United Express and US Airways Express both make you walk to the plane.

BHD is pretty small. When I was there I didn't see any jetways(2002). There was just a waiting area for all of the flights. There were several BE aircraft there though and this BD A320:

Ntspelich-Does TTN have ANY commercial flights anymore? I thought their one remaining carrier, Shuttle America d.b.a. US Airways Express, pulled the ripcord on the station when they severed ties with USX, and that it no longer has any commercial service...

Edit: Apparently there are flights on Pan Am TTN-Bedford, MA, Portsmouth, NH, and New London, CT...nice try on my part though...

Gainesville, FL will be installing 3 jetways within the next year. And the flights in to GNV are
7 Delta Connection 3 of which are RJS
3 Usair EMBs
5 Gulfstream B1900
2 Northwest CRJs

Now where do you need 3 jetways with service like that is beyond me but thats what the airport director shwoed me and told me when I interviewed him last week.

As regards to the ITH comment, once the 9's and F100's left, USariways Express used them with their ERJ/CRJ's for a while until there was a small "incident". I've been told that they CAN be used with Dash 8-100's but aren't. -Matt in KITH

BTR has jetways, and that is a small airport, though they do get service from 4 carriers (NW Airlink, DL Connection, Eagle and COex/CO)

ONT is a big airport with not that much passenger service (though certainly more than the airports we are talking about here) and did not have jetways until a few years ago, when they built the new terminals

CSG (Columbus, GA) does indeed have just one jetway. And even more interesting, its entrance is about the only thing on the second floor of the terminal. It was obviously built for a relatively large aircraft in mind - either as a diversion airport for ATL or for military charters.
Ask why..

I've got you all beat... well if it was 10 years ago. KUNU (Dodge County Airport: Juneau, WI) had one jet bridge when the new general aviation terminal was built. John Deere has 2 large maufacturing plants in nearby (4 miles) Horicon and the runways and jet bridge were designed with J.D. in mind. Soon after, the jetbridge was removed and a small patio put in its place outside a glass door.

Actually VPS is about to open a new modern terminal building, with three jetways. (Scheduled to open November 16, 2004) Following the opening, the existing Terminal will be demolished.

Eugene has several jetways. Certainly more than 2 or 3.

Delta's gate at KCHO has a jetway and I have seen it hooked up to a CRJ when I flew out of there 8 months back. I think that might be the only one too.

GPT is a "Mini-Me" modern facility with just 6 gates/jetways.

Actually, At one time we had 7 jetways, but they removed the Gate 3 and 4 Jetways so they could make room for the expansion outward. So now we only have 5 jetways and 1 of those is a "Super Bridge" where you walk down a long corridor type bridge, make a left turn and walk down another bridge to get to the plane. Takes about a minute and a half to actually get to the plane. A Real pain in the butt, but I call it the "Jetway to Heaven" cuz as you get to the end. YOU SEE THE LIGHT.

Helena, MT
Rockport, IL

Anyone remeber the old terminals at Worcester and Manchester? They somehow had a couple of jetways each fitted onto those tiny terminals. IIRC, they were all ground level.

CMI has two jetways and in the TW era actually had dc-9s to STL. Now the vast majority of the flights are AA Eagle. Some CO and DL flights also operate. It's a sweat modern little terminal.

ITO has four or five but three of them aren't even used (only AQ and HA serve ITO.)

Also Maui comes to mind. I think It only has a one or two jetways.

Actually, OGG has quite a bit more than two (at least seven or eight.)

I can't figure out if BFL is a small or large airport...airline flights are in and out like hurricanes through the Caribbean. At its peak, there were at least a dozen jet flights on UA, AA, & CO in the mid-to-late 1980's to DEN, ORD, DFW, FAT, SFO, LAX, and SBA. All retreated with the exception of United Express, which in late 1999 was the only game in town with EM2's to SFO and LAX.

All this with one of the longest runways in the United States. It has hosted Air Force One, and was considered an emergency landing site for the Space Shuttle (if the local paper can be believed).

Now the city is building a modern terminal (only about 40 years past due!!) with jetways, and easily expandable (we'll see about that) facilities to add more jetbridges as needed. Now that HP Express and CO Express (maybe CO mainline?) are firmly entrenched and doing very well there, and soon to be using these new jetways, "podunk" will no longer be a viable term.

Way ages ago before SJC had terminal A, there was one jetway in terminal C which is still used by Delta. It goes from ground level up to the plane.

GYY (Gary/Chicago Airport) has a few jetways with very few daily flights.
ORDagent, I agree with your comments about the CMI terminal. I flew into there once last year when I was attending school down there. A very nice airport/terminal for such a small town.

ADZ- San Anders Island, Colombia

2 jetways that handle about 20-25 domestic flights and 3 intl. flights a day. Though the airport will be expanded to 4 jetways, because it is already short of space, as most of the flights are MD-80s.

They have:

Avianca (operated by SAM) (1 daily, increases to 2 daily in the winter from BOG)
AeroRepublica (several daily from CLO, MDE and BOG)
West Caribbean (several daily from MDE, CTG, PTY and SJO)
TACA (daily from SJO)
Air Transat (charters in the winter from YYZ)

More than ADZ which has some movement, is SMR (Santa Marta) which handles under 350.000 pax per year and CUC (Cucuta) which handles 250.000 and they have 3 jetways each.

ONT did indeed have a jetway prior to the new terminals. It was located at the former terminal 2, and used by Delta. They used it for DC-9's, MD-80's, 727's, 737's, 757's, and 767's. Of course, the lead-in for the jetway was a mile long walk up a set of ramps. :P

MFR has one jetway that you have to hike up a flight of stairs to get to from the gate area. The terminal has 1 waiting area with 4 gates. Gate 1-3 are essentially doors to the outside and Gate 4 is the jetway. A new terminal will be operational in 2009 with a planned 4 jetways.

Hamilton in NZ (HLZ) is small and will have jetways built soon (if not already done so).
WLG also comes to mind
