Is ABIA getting new jetways? Just saw one on a truck at the Del Valle Grocery/Exxon on 71. Not really anyone else who'd be a customer for that around here.

It was one of the nicer glass ones too.

If that is the case...it would be really cool to have glass-sided jetways at ABIA!

I kind of doubt ABIA would be getting new jetways. They just spent several months refurbishing all the existing jetways.

From back in November:

Quote:
Passenger boarding bridge refurbishment has finished on Gate 20. The work includes installing new carpet, sprucing up the exteriors with new paint and signs, and replacing mechanical parts. All 24 boarding bridges will undergo refurbishment by winter 2014. All gates except 19, 22, and 24 have been completed. Work on those will start in December.
As far as I know, the only commercial airport in Texas that has glass-sided jetways is Amarillo.

^^ That's what I thought, about the refurb. So who is it for?

Perhaps in transit, but to where?

^^I have no idea. My guess is that it arrived at the Port of Houston via a cargo ship and it could be headed anywhere. Well... anywhere west of Houston.

The jetways are probably for Wichita's airport. They voted to buy some earlier this year.

Not my photo. I missed it yesterday by about 20 minutes. We went out to my sister's house in Del Valle and it had already taken off before we got there.
