Video: ‘Taking Off’ Highlights Boarding Bridges

August 29, 2019 | 17 Comments

Skyport has released the latest episode of ‘Taking Off’, a video series with host Mikaela Pearman that highlights the airport redevelopment project, with this episode highlighting the Passenger Boarding Bridges.

Speaking in the episode, Mikaela Pearman said, “One of the most exciting parts of Bermuda’s new passenger terminal building is here! Passenger Boarding Bridges.

“That’s right – when the new terminal opens, passengers will exit the plane via passenger boarding bridges instead of walking down the steps and onto the tarmac.

“The bridges were shipped in from Spain and are manufactured by ThyssenKrupp – the leading company in quality passenger boarding bridges.

“There are six in total, which will be affixed to six gates at the new terminal.

“Installation for the bridges began last month with setting up of columns, placing columns on the fixed connectors and rotundas and then attaching the bridges to the rotundas.

“The bridges are numbered three to eight from north to south, to allow for up to two new bridges should the terminal be extended to meet greater future demand.

“They can service all aircrafts that currently come to Bermuda and larger aircrafts once new routes are developed.

“It won’t be long before we are using the new passenger boarding bridges in Bermuda’s new passenger terminal building.”

    Bye look at that! No more getting the hair messed up walking to the plane.

  3. Trump supporter says:

    PLP ministers will look Good walking down the Canadian runways, then looking at the Canadian solar plant.

    OBA giving projects to canadians- 1 the airport
    PLP giving projects to canadians- 2 hospital and solar finger

    To think they where so against the airport.

    • They were against de timing and de secretive manner that it was done, remember we are on de hook when they dont make their annual quota, and they almost sold it to China.

      • question says:

        You’re not good with numbers or facts generally are you.

      • Triangle Drifter says:

        Just because you could not be bothered to attend any one of the many presentations on the new terminal, not airport, does not mean that it was secretive.

      • Trump supporter says:

        Typical selective responding. Care to talk about hospital and solar finger at airport?

    • What?? says:

      The hospital was not built by a Canadian company.

      Both the hospital and the solar plant contracts were awarded after a proper tendering process. The airport was not.

      • Question says:

        The hospital is a PPP contract giving an overseas firm annual payments for 30 years. I don’t recall that causing riots though for some reason.
