Passenger Boarding Bridges

Building on more than three decades of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of advanced Passenger Boarding Bridges (PBBs), ADELTE enables airlines and airports to increase operational efficiency and reduce operational costs.
ADELTE delivers innovative, made-to-measure and high quality Passenger Boarding Bridges with two or three bodies, a hydraulic or electromechanical elevation system, glass or steel tunnels and an increasing or decreasing telescope extension. Our complete line ranges from Apron Drives and Nose Loaders to T-Bridges and Commuter Bridges. It can service all commercial aircrafts, from the largest A380 to smaller jets, and covers every terminal and all apron-specific configuration needs.
ADELTE’s unique designs and technologies guarantee optimal performance on the apron.

  • aprondrive passenger boarding bridges

    Apron Drive Bridge

    The most flexible and popular telescopic Passenger Boarding Bridges worldwide, allowing a variety of docking heights and ample movements thanks to adjustable handling and lifting mechanisms.
  • a380_passenger_boarding_bridge

    A380 Apron Drive Bridge

    A telescopic Passenger Boarding Bridge with the same characteristics as the Apron Drive but able to reach a height of 8m. Specially designed for the Airbus A380.
  • dual_commuter_bridge_passenger_boarding_bridges

    Commuter Bridge

    This Passenger Boarding Bridge is designed to service Narrow-Body and Commuter-type aircrafts. The main feature is that the lift system and the cabin are smaller than those of the Apron Drive Bridge, adapting to the dimensional characteristics of the aircraft.
  • nose_loader_passenger_boarding_bridge

    Nose Loader Bridge

    This type of Passenger Boarding Bridge uses a cylinder for the telescopic extension and the elevation movement. It has no drive mechanism, however, as it is fixed to the ground.
  • passeger-boarding-bridge-t-bridges


    T-Bridges are specially designed to serve aircrafts with low boarding doors. The main difference is that this type of Passenger Boarding Bridge uses cabin translation movement and has no vertical elevation.


ADELTE’s comprehensive range of Aircraft Passenger Boarding Bridges covers all airports and apron configurations and needs, allows safe and easy docking operations and delivers a superior passenger boarding experience. Our unique design, advanced automated technology and high quality components makes ADELTE’s Passenger Boarding Bridges the ideal solution for fast and successful turnarounds.
  • Tailor-made to clients needs

    Tailor-made to clients’ needs

    Our engineers will design and deliver a Boarding Bridge manufactured to your specific needs, choosing the right size configuration, the drive system, the elevation type (hydraulic or electro-mechanical), a two or three body configuration, the most efficient air conditioning system and other design features, such as glass or steel tunnels, increasing or decreasing telescope extension or GSE integration. The result is a highly durable Passenger Boarding Bridge capable of providing a long-lasting service at your airport.
  • Low operating costs

    Elevation and travel systems are designed and engineered to offer maximum energy efficiency. The Passenger Boarding Bridge structure is prepared to receive Ground Support Equipment such as PCA and GPU which deliver preconditioned air and electricity to the stationed aircraft, dramatically reducing its energy consumption.

  • Fast, precise and secure docking maneuvers

    Fast, precise and secure docking maneuvers

    ADELTE’s Passenger Boarding Bridges are equipped with the latest Cabin and PLC technologies and offer a complete and reliable safety system. Multiple sensors, point-and-go technology and our fully automated docking system make docking operations simple and successful, preventing any risk for the aircraft or operator on the apron.
  • Direct access maintenance design

    Maintenance is a key factor for keeping boarding bridges in optimum operating condition. Thanks to our unique direct access design, all major components can be reached easily to allow maintenance tasks to be carried out quickly.

  • Superior product quality & reliability

    Superior product quality and reliability

    Our Passenger Boarding Bridges offer a stronger and more lightweight structure made of high quality steel which ensures the best protection against corrosion. All materials are tested and the manufacturing process is certified in order to guarantee excellent durability.
  • Outstanding safety and comfort for passengers

    We strongly believe that the moment a passenger enters one of our advanced boarding bridges they begin their journey. Therefore, design and a successful technical conception are vital, incorporating aspects such as innovative use of natural lighting, significant thermal and acoustic insulation, non-slip flooring, efficient air-conditioning solutions and comfortable gradient, all of which make a qualitative difference to a passenger’s perception of the service provided by an airport or airline.
