KLM and Schiphol Airport trialling automatic aerobridge to cut disembarkation time

24 September, 2019

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport began (24-Sep-2019) trialing a new automatic aerobridge at pier F to reduce disembarkation time. New technology including bridge sensors allows a double jet bridge to connect automatically to aircraft within one minute. KLM and its SkyTeam partners will test the equipment until late 2019, with a decision on further deployment to be made thereafter. [more - original PR - KLM] [more - original PR - Schiphol]
