Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Transportation Equipment Engineering & Service Co Ltd (MHI-TES) has almost completed a project to install five passenger boarding bridges at Miyazaki Airport in Japan.

Installation work began in September, and all five PBBs will be in place by December 2017 to support ongoing expansion efforts at Miyazaki Airport, MHI-TES announced on 16 November.

Miyazaki Airport Building Co Ltd ordered two bespoke Long PBBs (the first bridges of their type to be delivered to a Japanese airport) and three STEPLESS PBBs with barrier-free corridors.

One of the STEPLESS PBBs was installed in October for international flights and two existing PBBs are being upgraded to STEPLESS configuration for passengers on domestic flights.

The Long PBBs were jointly developed by MHI-TES and Miyazaki Airport, to handle domestic narrowbody and small aircraft such as the Bombardier Dash 8 Series. “Conventional PBBs cannot be directly connected to smaller passenger aircraft of 80 seats or fewer,” MHI-TES noted. “The newly developed design solves this problem to create a truly passenger-friendly solution.”
