|The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) has directed all Philippine-based airlines to use aerobridges in all
airports across the country where facilities are available, according to its memorandum issued today.
The Order to use aerobridges was mandated after numerous complaints were lodged by passengers about budget carriers' refusal to use them to cut on costs. Non-usage also exposed passengers to bad weather and forced to walk on the airport's apron and then climb the stairs to board the plane.
"The use of aerobridges are not only for the convenience of the passengers, but also important for aviation safety and security."says CAAP deputy director general Capt. John C. Andrews.
CAAP encourages passengers to report airline abuses. Violators risks fine of P50,000.
