Aircraft ground equipment Passenger boarding bridge or transfer vehicle Requirements for interface with aircraft doors
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
|ICS Code (Ground service and maintenance equipment):||49.100|
This document specifies dimensional interface and unobstructed space requirements applicable to the aircraft mating section of either
a) passenger boarding bridges, or
b) passenger transfer vehicles
used at airports for boarding and disembarkation of passengers on the types of civil transport aircraft which have been listed hereafter. These types of aircraft have a door sill height greater than 2,0 m (80 in) over the ground. Lower aircraft usually do not require such means of access, and have not been taken into account.
Data was compiled and checked as to the exact location of such items on the most frequently used civil transport aircraft types, including the following:
- AIRBUS A300/A310/A318/A319/
- BOEING COMMERCIAL AIRPLANE B717/B727/B737/B747/
- LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT L1011
- McDONNELL DOUGLAS DC9/DC10/MD11/MD80/M
NOTE "Aircraft type", in this context, means the whole family of aircraft sub-types with the same fuselage design and the same general type designator, i.e. potentially includes any future derivative aircraft with the same fuselage.
It is not the intent of the present document to specify any requirements applicable to aircraft design, but to make a status of aircraft passenger door 1 surrounding interface for aircraft designed up to year 2000. Future aircraft types with a new fuselage are expected to meet the main deck passenger doors requirements for interface with passenger boarding bridges or passenger transfer vehicles of ISO 7718 (all parts), which would ensure their compatibility with the aircraft mating section of passenger boarding bridges or passenger transfer vehicles meeting the requirements of the present document.
