ADELTE is a leading provider of passenger boarding bridges, preconditioned air (PCA units), engineering solutions and support services for the global airport industry.

Our engineering solutions are designed to deliver high-performance and a long service-life, while ensuring optimum safety and comfort for passengers.

Turnkey passenger boarding bridges for airport sites

ADELTE provides a wide selection of made-to-order passenger boarding bridges (PBBs) for airport terminals, ranging from apron drives and nose loader systems to commuter and T-bridges.

Our PBBs are able to service all commercial aircraft, from large A380s to smaller jets. They facilitate fast, precise and secure automated docking procedures via multiple advanced sensor systems and point-and-go technology.

Furthermore, ADELTE’s customisable PBBs are constructed out of steel and coated with high-quality, corrosion-resistant C5-M paint for maximum durability in a variety of weather conditions.

Customisable boarding solutions for airport and airline applications

ADELTE PBBs can be supplied in bespoke size, drive system and elevation configurations, and in two or three component variants depending on customers’ unique operational needs.

All our structures offer non-slip flooring, optimum natural lighting, and thermal / acoustic insulation to ensure passenger safety, and provide a comfortable boarding experience for customers.

Our innovative PBBs feature low-energy consumption and minimal operating costs. They have been specially developed based on a convenient direct-access maintenance design, with all areas readily accessible to allow for quick and easy repairs.

In addition, ADELTE PBBs can be fitted with glass or steel tunnel sections, as well as increasing or decreasing telescope extensions to suit a variety of airport terminal arrangement and apron setups.

Point-of-use preconditioned air solutions for airport terminals

ADELTE’s ZEPHIR and ZEPHIR Inverter systems are high-quality, flexible preconditioned air (PCA) solutions suitable for application in a wide range of aircraft in all climates and environments.

Our PCA units use four different compressors across four conditioning phases, and are also equipped with direct drive centrifugal blowers to ensure low operating costs and optimum efficiency. In addition, they are integrated with powerful yet environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant systems, which have also been proven to reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to greener operations. Zephir inverter, thanks its real inverter compressors and its heat pump system for heating, improves the efficiency and significantly reduces consumption and CO2 emissions.

Our point-of-use units are available in ground-mounted and bridge-mounted configurations depending on the intended application. The turnkey solutions can be easily deployed on any PBB and will fit any terminal layout, while also being compatible for integration with centralised management systems.

ZEPHIR’s control systems can be accessed remotely via user-friendly touchscreen to give users total control during operation, as well as monitoring and maintenance procedures.

We have carefully designed the ZEPHIR units to provide quality air delivery to offer superior comfort for passengers. Our systems use high-performance G4 filters as standard, and can be fitted with F5 to F9 filters upon request to further optimise results.

ADELTE’s PCA units have been extensively field-tested to ensure a minimum service-life of 15 years, and the systems can be easily maintained thanks to their advantageous direct access design. Remote maintenance solutions are also available.
