Abstract

The ingress and egress of passenger on commercial airplanes is an issue that warrants attention. Having a single point of entry and exit on planes restricts the flow of passengers to and from their seats. Varying fuselage length with varying placement of cabin doors requires a system that allows for flexibility in allowing for multiple entry and exit points along the aircraft at varying linear distances. Aerobridge Providing Multiple Access Points to Aircraft Vehicle (patent pending), is a Passenger Boarding Bridge which presents a novel approach to tackling this pesky issue. It is designed to dock with an airplane in such a way that passengers can enter or exit the plane simultaneously via multiple doors located before, above and after the wing-root of aircrafts thereby, allowing for a faster and more efficient boarding/deplaning process. Using this jetway, airlines will achieve optimum utilization of their airplanes, experience tremendous increased profits and efficiency, and ultimately, improve the ingress/egress experience for their passengers.
