Thanks for the tag, just had the thought of “how does Putin look nowadays” and here you come just in time. It’s so cool that all our society, all our technological progress had lead to this exact moment when Putin used the stairs but the stairs were under a sunshade. Fascinating photo, can’t wait for a photo of Biden using the stairs, after that I’ll be sold. But even so, definitely a must have, I’ll see if I can free a vote.

Just found on Internet that Istanbul (Ataturk), Munich, Krakow, Queenstown (New Zealand), Phnom Penh (Cambodia) also have it. So I just added them in the list !

It would truly be a good thing to add this at NZQN to be less empty imo it’s the same energy as LOWI.

Seattle / (SEA) and Punta Cana have exactly the same one!
The pic you shared is at London Gatwick :o according to the link

That’s an interesting shape, I wasn’t aware that they also were built with the roof, in Manchester we already have this one on IF but without the roof

I guess some airport have both roof and non- roof. 🤷‍♂️

Cepu Pacific are also using both roof and non-roof PWD ramp in some airports in the Philippines.

Example: Laguindingan Airport

Just found out that Abu Dhabi and Male (Maldives) airport have these airstairs.

So I added them in the list !
(Also found PDL, LGG, REP, ZAG, SVO as well)

The ones at AUH almost look like the FRA and LHR ones .

However, the Male ones (see below) look like the basic ones (I mean the same airstairs type which were posted the most here).

Airport ramps/apron need this on IF in current 3D airports and future 3D airports, so please vote or support if you agree!

Added three more airports in Vietnam (DAD/ HAN and CXR), one in Thailand (the other Bangkok one [DMK], not the 3D one), Budapest (Hungary), Kayseri (Turkey), three in Poland (GDN, KTW and WAW [3D]), Naples, Milan and Treviso (Italy), Vigo (Spain), Kiev (Ukraine), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Vladivostok (Russia)

Let’s hope this enters in a category above they’ll be working on in the future.

and Tivat (Montenegro)

there are FR destinations in the list above too !👀

yes, but we need them on the planes like the 737 NG family air stairs built into the plane like Ryanair does at hardstands with no gate.

So I’m currently watching LHR planespotting,
LHR/EGLL also has the same airstairs as the picture I posted in the first message (Swiss A220) !
I thought the one I quoted was the only type there ! So there’re at least 2 different tunnel airstairs there, we need this.

That’s nice ! 👀
