TTN and HVN Jet Bridges

Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:51 pm

TTN and HVN each have a jet bridge. Neither of them have been used in years. Does anybody know the last time they were functional?

This is a topic that interests me as well (single jet bridge airports that seemingly never use it). Another one that comes to mind is Topeka, which probably hasn't been used since the TWA days; when I was at FOE last, it looked rough. Elko has one bridge, but I think it gets plenty of use with the charters. DAB & MLB's int'l terminals are each a separate structure with a single bridge, probably not used since LTU flew L-1011s in there. I would guess at some point airports just decommission them due to lack of service or, for the airlines they do have, they operate aircraft that can't use it or don't want to use it (i.e. G4).

Thanks for pointing out FOE and EKO...forgot about those. I doubt the EKO jet bridge gets used much anymore since the casino junkets no longer operate to the Red Lion. To my knowledge, only Wendover and Laughlin see regular casino junket charters anymore.

TTNs was torn off and scrapped like a year ago... I believe it was actually rusted in place if that gives you any indication.

HVN's may be used soon with the new CRJ-200 service

FOE gets some use of the jetbridge for casino and sports charters for KU. I have been in it when it moves - It is not a 'spring chicken!'

The most interesting jetbridge I've ever seen is in Sitka Alaska. You go to ground. Then up stairs and immediately enter the jet bridge. So tickets are scanned at ground level, then steps, then bridge, then plane.

That's the way every gate was at the old terminal at Midway

The opposite of this is a little more common though, namely descending stairs in the terminal in order to get to the bridge. My hometown airport of YOW has a couple of those on the transborder side for RJ flights. They also have a couple on the domestic side where you go down a ramp in order to go down a level to the jet bridge.

ORK is an airport where I've been to, where there is (at least was as it was a few years ago for me) only 1 jet bridge and it gets little to no use. Ryanair and Aer Lingus, the two main jet aircraft operators both don't use the bridge. I believe when ORK's new terminal was built, the original plan was to have 5 or 6 bridges, but since there was no interest in actually using them, the airport only ended up building one.

When SWA opened BUR APR90, they had a single jetbridge at A5. Steep stairs up & small walkway into a/c. Gone once HP took the gate over.

Interestingly, on Google Maps, there's an EI A320 docked at the bridge. :)

Side note, Butte, Montana and Casper, WY are single bridge terminals.

The New Haven city budget for 2017-2018 shows the acquisition of a new jet bridge for HVN to replace the currently aged one.

The MKE Int'l. Arrivals Bldg has a single jet bridge that swings between 2 parking positions.

I believe DL's gates at the old CAE terminal were that way

So there's quite a few out there it seems. I wonder how many of them actually get used.

Interesting. When I was there, an EI 320 used the gate, but stopped short of the jetway A320 line and stairs pulled up to it. This was when EI were trying to be a LCC. Now that they're IAG owned, I'm guessing they're a bit more like a legacy nowadays again.

Another single jetway Montana airport I remember driving by as a teenager in the mid-90s was Kalispell/Glacier Park International/FCA. The gate had DL's logo on it and I was lucky enough to see a DL 727 parked at the gate as they only served the airport 2 or 3 times a day, and which were the only 'mainline jets at the time to serve the airport, other than I think Horizon F28s...although in that era US had mainline F28s.

While not entirely clear, this pic seems to indicate that it's still a 1 jetway airport

IIRC, Porter now uses the single jetway in the international terminal at MLB since they don't have US Pre-clearance at YTZ. As for DAB, you're probably right about it not being used since the 90s with LTU's DUS service. I was in DAB over Labor Day Weekend and tried to see if I could go into the international terminal before I got my rental car. Doors are closed and locked.

Single jetway at BDL Int'l Terminal. Probably not used but once or twice since the old NW AMS inbound.

I'd forgotten them, they probably do have to go the international terminal.
