The FMT Nose-Loader type of Passenger Boarding Bridges are continuously developed since the first installation in 1972. The FMT Nose-Loader Bridge consists of a telescopic tunnel which is extending to connect with the aircraft door. The Telescopic tunnel is elevated by a hydraulic cylinder.

Since the Nose-Loader type of bridge is fixed along the axis parallel to the lead-in line the need for a high precision Docking Guidance System is obvious.

The combination when installing FMT Nose-Loader Bridge and FMT VDGS will lead to safe, smooth and exact connection of the bridge to the aircraft.

The Nose-Loader type of bridge will take the slope from the terminal building in the fixed tunnel section from the terminal to the main bridge support and from there also in the telescopic tunnel which is elevating up and down.
The Nose-Loader type of bridge has advantages with regards to simple service and maintenance with low costs due to less movable parts compared to Apron Drive type of Passenger Boarding Bridges.

The Nose-Loader type of bridge is a preferred type for airports with extreme environmental conditions like cool and snowy winters and/or hot and humid summers with hard winds.
