Boarding completed

Many leisure and business trips get started with HÜBNER. Our connection systems make it possible for passengers to enter planes safely and comfortably via the passenger boarding bridge – at airports around the world.

HÜBNER produced the first folding canopies for passenger boarding bridges in 1971. Since then, the family-owned company has delivered more than 5,000 of these high-performance units. What makes them so special is that they can flexibly adjust to nearly every sort of commercial aircraft – from small regional planes to the jumbo Airbus A380. The patented HÜBNER kinematic system allows for gap-free docking with the passenger boarding bridge. Elastic bumpers provide an optimal seal between the folding canopy and the aircraft, protecting passengers against any type of weather that might be encountered. 

Again and again HÜBNER innovations have brought advances in airport technology. One such innovation is the Passenger Boarding Bridge Interface (PBBI) 2.0 – a complete system consisting of a fixed frame mounted on the cabin of the passenger boarding bridge, an adjustable tilt-correction mechanism, the folding canopy and a touchless sliding floor element that can pivot symmetrically in both directions. 

New standards in airport technology are also being set by HÜBNER's modular passenger weather protection and guidance system. It allows for a perfect connection across the airport apron from the terminal to an airplane, providing passengers with a clear way to follow and secure weather protection.
