Though, the concept of passenger boarding bridges was said to be initiated in the very early days of commercial aviation, the PBB’s have now become a standard feature at airports all around the world.
A Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) also termed as (a jetway, jetwalk, airgate, gangway, aerobridge/airbridge, skybridge, airtube, jetbridge) is typically an enclosed, movable connector which is used to facilitate passenger movement between airport terminal gate to an airplane, or sometimes from a port to a boat or ship or a spacecraft, allowing passengers to board and disembark without going outside and being exposed to harsh conditions. Depending on manufacturing design operational requirements and other factors, a PBB may be fixed or movable, swinging radially, and/or extending in length.
It is used to enhance passenger comfort and increase security by providing a controlled and a safe passage to the passengers on the way from the terminal to the plane.
The global passenger boarding bridges market is expected to witness growth at a steady CAGR in the years to come.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major pertaining factors including; the globally increasing passenger traffic coupled with their increasing air travel demand, extensions of existing terminals along with construction of new airports worldwide, the high demand for large aircrafts, increasing number of greenfield and brownfield airport projects, increased spending on airside infrastructure by airport operators and the increasing focus on reducing passenger turnaround time etc.
Additionally, with organizations emphasizing importance on making investments in better-quality airport infrastructures and companies focusing on delivering variants that promise optimal convenience to users as well as operators to accommodate growth in traffic demand and maintaining levels of service expected by passengers, this market is flourishing comprehensively.
Moreover, PBB’s provide all-weather dry access to aircraft and enhance the security of terminal operations. Also, they provide enhanced access to aircraft for passengers with many types of disabilities and mobility impairments, as they may board and disembark without climbing stairs or using a specialized wheelchair lift. Faster loading can lead to lower airport charges, fewer delays and more passengers movement in the airport, leading to their increased demand in the industry.
Furthermore, increasing concerns over airport security, implementation of e-passports, need for enhanced aircraft ground support infrastructure along with fast-expanding air travel industry, entrance of more investors due to the high profit of production and sales of passenger boarding bridges, has fueled the amount of investments which aid in the development and procurement of such products and services.
However, long life cycles of passenger boarding bridges, the high procurement and operational costs for low-cost airlines, high cost of training along with lack of skilled personnel and higher costs of maintenance for passenger boarding bridges, as compared to aircraft boarding stairs are factors that are restraining the growth of this market.
