Single Jet Bridge Airports Outside of the US

Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:26 am

Single (or dual) jet bridge airports aren't common per se in the US, but they can be found and found fairly often. Some that come to mind here in the US include Elko NV, Sitka AK, Topeka KS, and Ithaca NY to name a few. But what about elsewhere in the world? Are there many single jet bridge airports outside of the US? None come to mind...

BHD Belfast City Airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom is the only airport in that country that has a single AirBridge.

Do not get confused with BFS Belfast international Airport which is Northern Ireland's principal international gateway which has four AirBridges.

Pisa (PSA) only has one jetbridge, all other gates use bus boarding and airstairs.

IEV, Kiev's city airport (as opposed to KBP, the main airport) seems to have one jet bridge only; rest of flights board via buses.

Lelystad Airport (LEY). Although it is a (real) jetway connecting the museum with a 747-200B.

Mmmm nope, having worked at both i can assure you BFS only has 1. It hasn't had 4 bridges since hmm..The 1990s or perhaps early 2000s?

My home airport, CRP, had one jet bridge that WN built for its gate for about 25 years before the original terminal was replaced with the new terminal in 2002. The new terminal is much more compact, and all the gates are on the second floor and have jet bridges.

I flew into IEV a few years ago. As I recall they had busses to take passengers between the gates and the aircraft. I don't think I saw the lone jet bridge.

It's definitely there: https://goo.gl/maps/282VTRiExx12. How old is that terminal? There isn't much ramp rash. Is it even used?

Though not attached to a terminal per se, BA maintenance at CWL has a jetbridge they use to load/unload cabin fittings: https://goo.gl/maps/Cph7CiRuors.

Bologna seems to have jetbridge piers, but none actually attached.

Thanks for clarifying that as I was under the impression that BFS still had the four AirBridges but to be fair I haven't used the airport since 1999.

Can you also clarify why three were removed?

British Airways also have a single AirBridge at it's maintenance base at LHR for the same use as the one at it's maintenance base at CWL.

The former USAF Base at Mildenhall in the United Kingdom also had one single AirBridge.

I imagine they were probably condemned! The bridges around the (what is now) stand 14 and 18 areas probably fell out of favour with the low cost airlines that came in, and the one at 27 was a nose loader.

That is absolutely correct and spot on but the topic of the discussion is Airports that have only a ''SINGLE AIRBRIDGE'' not two, not three but a single AirBridge, singular as in ONE.

Ah but that is where you are wrong, as the OP said "single(or dual)"
Well uh, I obviously decided to refine this but i dont know how.

Then I guess that the OP should change the headline to his thread title from SINGLE to DUAL as it clearly states SINGLE in the thread title even though in his opening post it has single or (dual) in brackets as in (dual).

I'm sure there are many examples of airports with (dual) AirBridges throughout the world but airports with just a singular AirBridge are rather more unique aren't they.
