What Is An Apron-drive Loading Bridge?

Tue Mar 08, 2005 1:50 pm

Guys need some help with this..

What exactly is an Apron-Drive Loading Bridge? Is it just another term for a Jetway/Aerobridge or is it something else  Confused

In case this has been discussed before, then my apologies. However I did a search but it didn't throw up anything  Sad

Many Thanks

Olly

I think that is the kind of bridges which are supported by wheels, making them more flexible than those mounted on rigid supports. You can have them telescope around to e g serve multiple stands.

Cheers,

I saw a new term for jetway in MAN this morning: "Bridgehead".
