Mangalore International Airport Starts Operating Two More Passenger Boarding Bridges: This Is More Flexible

The Mangalore International Airport (MIA) has commenced the operationalisation of two more passenger boarding bridges or aerobridge.
This new facility aims to give much operational flexibility to airlines especially during rains where shifting passengers from the plane on the apron to the terminal and vice-versa from the open bay poses a challenge.

Attached to the new integrated terminal building, these aerobridges also enable the airport to optimally utilise the 11 parking stands available on the apron. The move to put in use these aerobridges used both for domestic and international flight movements will ensure that the passengers are not exposed to the vagaries of nature while boarding or alighting from a plane.
The aerobridges can be used with the narrow-bodied plane such as Airbus A320, A321 or Boeing 737-800. Airline ferries passengers to and from the plane to the terminal in coaches on routes where they deploy an ATR.
