JBT Corporation Announces Major AeroTech Order
CHICAGO, March 27, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT) today announced that Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has awarded a contract for the supply of 19 passenger boarding bridges and associated equipment for its new Terminal 2, Pier E development to JBT AeroTech.
The completed project will enable the airport gates to service a wide variety of commercial aircraft from small, regional jets up through the Airbus A340-600 and Boeing B747-400 jumbo jets. Nearly half the boarding bridges will be configured in a "Multiple Aircraft Ramp System" (MARS) layout.
"This innovative bridge layout arrangement allows for two boarding bridges to service one single jumbo aircraft or two smaller, narrow-body aircraft at the same gate," said John Lee, Vice President and Division Manager of JBT AeroTech. "The MARS stands provide Dublin Airport Authority with great flexibility in accommodating the mix of aircraft visiting their airport."
The project is expected to be completed by April 2010.
