The FMT Commuter type of Passenger Boarding Bridges has been developed to provide the passengers with a weather protected walkway from the terminal building to the stair of a commuter type of aircraft.
The Commuter Bridge rotates around a fixed point at the terminal building and is able to telescope a tunnel section to approach the aircraft stair as close as possible. This type of movability allows the commuter aircraft to park power-in-power-out.
The Commuter Bridges are currently working in Denmark, Germany and in the United Kingdom.
The Connect Commuter is a more advanced version and protects the passengers completely from all rain- and snowfall. From the end of the walkway tunnel a large bellow section will cover the aircraft stairs and thereby protect the passengers while entering into the aircraft.
FMT Commuter Bridges are suitable for smaller airports with a ground floor terminal arrangement.
