Wellington Airport installs world's first fully automated aerobridge

5 February, 2019

Wellington International Airport installed (05-Feb-2019) an 'Intellidock' fully automated aerobridge docking system onto one of its domestic gates. Once an aircraft has parked at its allocated gate, the Intellidock's sensor scans the aircraft door and automatically drives the bridge into position and locks into place. Intellidock was created by Wellington based company Airport Equipment, and Wellington Airport is the first airport in the world to adopt the technology. Further roll outs at more gates are planned later this year. [more - original PR]
