British Airways and Skyport successfully completed a trial run at the new passenger terminal building this week, using a Boeing 777 – the largest commercial flight that currently services Bermuda.

A spokesperson for Skyport said: “The purpose of the trial was to train airport staff on best protocols for docking the aircraft to the new passenger boarding bridges.

“It also included positioning of all ground service vehicles around the aircraft.

“The trial was successful and brings us one step closer to opening Bermuda’s new terminal building on December 9,” she added.
