World's largest airport as measured by number of jet bridges

Mon Sep 19, 2016 1:04 pm

Hi Everyone,

So I was transferring at HKG the other day, and have noticed that over the past few years, I have repeatedly had to use stairs to board the aircraft. This contrasts greatly to SIN where not a single time have I had to use stairs upon arrival.

This brings me to my question. What is the largest airport in the world as measured by number of total jet bridges?

Mods, feel free to delete this topic if if has been posted before. A quick search revealed nothing.


Cheers,
Intothinair

I don't know of any consolidated count, but my guess is that ATL has the highest number of jet bridge gates. DXB may give it a run for its money as far as total jet bridges because of the number of 380 gates.

Total jet bridges or total jet bridge gates? For example, an A380 gate has 3 jet bridges so do you count that as 3 or as 1. Personally I think it should be 1 because regardless of how many jet bridges you have it only just 1 gate.
If it's the number of jet bridges, as you stated, then it's likely an airport catering to a lot of wide body aircraft such as DXB.
If it's the number of jet bridge gates, then it's likely a U.S. airport as U.S. airlines are predominantly domestic carriers that operate a lot of narrowbody flights and are averse to hard stand operations.

I think intothinair question was about the gates not the bridges in each gate, I am sure that the USA airports are dominating the top 10 list

edit: forgot the airport:

D F W


A 25
B 46
C 28
D 24
E 26
E satellite 9
between B & D 5

TOTAL = 163

Notes:
The A380 gate on D has 3 jetways, but I only counted as 1. However, there are 2 parking spaces that could be used for 2 of them with 2 narrow bodies.

There is a jetway on C, that seems impossible to use, so I didn't count it

So the REAL total = 166

ORD:
T1: 50
T2: 41
T3: 72
T5: 21 (Could be less with more larger aircraft)
Total: 184
Note: I counted the aircraft spots that can be accessed to the terminal with a jet bridge. As airbazar noted, some spots have two bridges for one plane going to one gate, I counted those as 1. Also, some gates have multiple bridges that spoke off for multiple planes, I counted each one of those; example the north end of T1, concourse B.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I'm guessing this is DFW? You forgot to identify the airport.

DXB has about 70 if I correctly understand that Terminal 2 has none.
PEK has about 120. I think it's the highest number outside of USA.

JFK has 118 and LAX has 122 but both have big number of double and triple gates. still i guess that ATL is still the largest by number of gates term. i guess LHR also have large amount of gates.

I can't deny that I also do Google/Bing maps counting of jet gates/bridges. I used to distinguish only for real gates or aircraft parking positions, but lately have transitioned to bridge count, for two reasons:
First: one can't really compare a widebody gate with two bridges (let alone 3 bridges for A380) to 737 or 320 sized gates. Not in terms of pax, nor in terms of apron area.
Secondly, more and more of these widebody gates, are becoming flex/swing gates, where one parking space can be used of one 744/77W or two A320/737 seized planes. Which makes is very difficult, if not impossible, to get to an accurate total.
I find this the most reliable way to compare airports in this respect (jet bridge gate wise).

AMS (Schiphol - 100 years today!), counting bridges:
B: 7 (+6 gate stairs)
C: 14
D: 33
E: 19
F: 16
G: 15
H: (7 gate stairs)

Total: 104 (13 gate stairs)

Crazy amount of gates. It is sure hell when you have to run from gate 8 to get 93 for your next flight the leaves in 30 mins. My experience at DFW.

For Terminal C the jetbridge at 93 was removed several years ago and the jetbridge at 91 was removed a couple years back to accommodate the reconfigured jetbridge at 92. So its 57 gates. (Gates, 76, 77, 78, 79, 89, 100, 101, 106, & 129 don't exist)

I was reading an article on ORD in 'Airliner World' magazine just last night. It stated 189 gates, but not sure they were all w/bridges. Sometimes it's tough to tell on Google maps, especially when RJ gates are in the mix.

I think MSP is at 124 including the 10 or so gates at T2 (Humphrey). Although I hear they may be pulling out some of the CRJ jet bridges to accommodate more mainline and E170/5 which presumably would reduce the total gates.

I think there are 42 gates in T2 but otherwise absolutely right for ORD at least in terms of the number of jetways. L has a few gates that do not have jetbridges so the 189 number from Airliner World may be correct.

T1B 22
T1C 28
T2E 16
T2F 26
T3G 25
T3H 18
T3K 17
T3L 12

I'm surprised DEN *only* has just a few more than 100 jetway gates. It feels like a lot more, but maybe that's only because there are so many RJ gates in A and B. No wonder the airport is maxed out and looking to expand.

So DEN comes in at #11 so far at 103 jetways. Strangely, Stapleton had 109 jetways (I believe), still beating the airport that it was replaced by.

If memory serves the breakdown was:

A: 8
B: 21
C: 25
D: 35 (though most of D was closed and some jetways removed shortly after E opened and CO downsized)
E: 20

I would not classify DXB in a list of "airports measured by number of jet bridges" since they have so many A380 capable gates. 94 gates is impressive, but behind quite a few airports. It seems aircraft parking positions is a more accurate description when counting gates/bridges.

I don't have an exact number, but YYZ is currently turning down new airlines because they don't have enough gates. I wouldn't expect it to be up there.

YYZ satellite isn't currently in use, and the CEO is completely against using it. It could be the solution to the gate issues currently being experienced, but unfortunately duty free/food revenue matters more to the current management. YYZ is extremely cash-strapped right now, so its understandable.

A more appropriate comparison could be on airports which can 'gate' max # of airplanes simultaneously.

I have used bus gates numerous times at Changi. All prop flights are bus gates as well as some Scoot, Qatar, Etihad and SQ flights depending on time of day. Also, HKG has 88 gates at this point.

They did spend a decent sum of money to make it pretty for the refugees that were coming in.

Now, other than aircraft being parked there between flights, it's just sitting and collecting dust.

I have heard from a source that Sunwing was trying to use it for all of their flights, but as you said, the GTAA refuses to use it.

I would subtract one gate from D since D60 is the Eagle "gate" (no jet bridges), two gates from E since E24 and E25 are currently not operational (and until recently were missing bridges), four gates from G since G1 is a ground load gate and G3, G5, and G7 do not have operative jet bridges, and one gate from J since J6 is another ground load gate.

Is this a gate count?

I have a jetbridge count of 211 for CDG:

T1: 48
T2A: 14 (including 4 double)
T2B: 8 (including 4 double)
T2C: 11
T2D: 9
T2E: 21
T2F: 24

T2 S4: 39


Yes the general consensus is counting the number of gates which is equipped with jetbridge.

I would not classify DXB in a list of "airports measured by number of jet bridges" since they have so many A380 capable gates. 94 gates is impressive, but behind quite a few airports. It seems aircraft parking positions is a more accurate description when counting gates/bridges.


I would argue 94 gates where just about all of them are widebody gates with 2 or more jetbridges is more impressive than the figures for large US airports.

And, I bet, if DXB needed to, they could quite easily realign most of their bays to be capable of handling 2 narrowbodies with a jet bridge each. There just simply isn't a need for it, as, at the moment, concourse A, B and C will not see any narrowbody traffic. (When I say realign, I just mean paint new bay markings and recertify, and probably install some new NIGS systems)

I guess it's a gate count and since we're counting jetbridge gates it could very well be correct. CDG has a lot of gates with multiple jetbridges.

I did a quick Google Earth count and counted 112 jetbridge gates at CDG, but it was difficult to count so I might be a few off. Still I think CDG has the most jetbridge gates in Europe.

MAD just didn't make the list, I've counted 99 jetway gates. Surprisingly little for such a big airport, but MAD also has a lot of remote gates that use bus boarding.

The topic author clearly talked about jet bridges, not gates with jet bridges. If the talk is about number of jet bridges, there is the clear and present danger that a non USA airport comes out on top, so the talk changed fast to the number of gates with jet bridges. Gates with one jet bridge for a regional jet do not compare to gates with two or three jet bridges serving an A380 or smaller but still big wide body. So we should really count jet bridges not gates.

Well the original poster has not confirmed that's what he was looking for and his topic does say "number of jet bridges". Also sometimes a gate can be used for a wide body or two narrow bodies, so does that count as two gates?
