Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday at the Duluth International Airport to celebrate the completion and opening of the airports three new jet bridges.

The addition of the three new jet bridges means that all four jet bridges at the airport are now fully operating, making boarding for commercial and charter flights easier on passengers.

Airport spokespeople say that the opening of the jet bridges came just in time, with winter fast approaching.

"You'll be able to catch flights at all four of them now and so it should largely eliminate the ground boarding especially in the winter time, which I know is a huge headache, so we're extremely excited to announce this for our passengers," said Tom Werner, executive director of the Duluth International Airport.

The completion of all four jet bridges marks the completion of the third and final phase of the terminal construction project.
