(Montgomery, AL) – The Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) offers an impressive passenger experience as it unveils its newest $6 million improvement, including the Passenger Boarding Bridges and Terminal Ramp Expansion Projects.
The A-Bridge-installed bridges allow passengers to board and deplane easily and comfortably in new state-of-the-art telescoping boarding bridges. The bridges were purchased from TKE and boost boarding efficiency, convenience and safety. The Terminal Ramp Expansion project offers convenient access to the ramp providing easy access for larger aircraft and future growth.
“Passenger boarding bridges are the passengers’ first and last impressions of the Montgomery Airport experience. These upgrades ensure passengers have a stress-free experience when arriving at MGM, including a comfortable and seamless boarding experience,” said Wade A. Davis, Executive Director of Montgomery Regional Airport. “In addition, from the airline perspective, the new ramp expansion and passenger board bridges will increase efficiency and reduce wait times.”
Upon approval, the Montgomery Airport Authority began replacing two of the four existing bridges to enhance the passenger experience. The cutting-edge design of the new bridges will allow for greater mobility access and enhanced camera safety features for operations, while the sleek contemporary design will be visually appealing.
The current passenger boarding bridges feature common narrow walkways, and although these are functional, the bridges are being replaced due to age and wear. The estimated completion date for this project’s final phase is May 2023.
