Augusta Regional Airport Installs Two Additional Passenger Boarding Bridges!
Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is excited to announce the purchase and installation of two additional passenger-boarding bridges.
This new amenity offers AGS customers a safe, secure, and efficient way to access their aircraft. Previously, many AGS customers had to ground board requiring them to walk outside on the tarmac and utilize manual stairs to enplane or deplane. With the implementation of the new passenger boarding bridges, AGS customers will have a smooth and safe transition from the terminal building to the aircraft. Additional benefits include protection from the elements, ease of accessibility for individuals with disabilities or limited mobility, and an overall professional experience.
“This is one of the more momentous additions to our Airport in recent years. The passenger boarding bridges will significantly heighten the efficiency, perception, and customer service experience of the AGS operation. They also make our Airport more attractive as we position ourselves for future growth,” said Mr. Herbert Judon Jr., Airport Executive Director.
“This project represents the hard work of our airport director and the entire airport team,” says Mayor Hardie Davis Jr. “The new jet bridges will provide travelers with ease of access to embark and deplane in a safe and comfortable environment year round. I’m excited for Augusta and the region.”
The new passenger boarding bridges have been installed at gate one and gate five and both of AGS’ commercial air carriers (Delta & American) will primarily utilize the bridges to enplane and deplane their passengers. This $1.3 million dollar capital improvement was an approved Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) project funded by Passenger Facility Charges (PFCS)/Airport user fees.
