Feature request title:
Buildable jetways for stands.
Jetways can be built in a similar way as the queue and possible for going across floors. As a result, jetways can be built into different shapes and connect the ground floor and second floor(or first and third floor).
I’ve seen there are entry & exit marks for jetways, so I assume that it’s also possible to make entry & exit bridges connecting to different floors. So that another important feature for most airports----departure and arrival floors----is possible to be shown in-game.
Why it should be implemented:
I’ve seen quite a lot of suggestions about removing the roads attached to the stands and heard one of the reasons that it’s still not implemented is the length of the jetway. So I think this can be a solution to have customized jetway length and shape so adapt to the various situation, and get rid of the attached roads.
Another reason is that for corner stands, airports often have much longer bridges connecting the terminal build to the left side of planes, while in-game now the only option to simulate this is to extend the terminal build (such as using one tile), which made it looks not as good. A customized jetway, however, can easily solve this problem.

A bit add-ons:
… this part is for some daydreams so take it easy
I noticed that at some airports there are these “fake” jetways:
With the customized jetway implemented it might be possible to build these fancy remote stands (and it’s hard to implement I know) but I think it can be implemented as an upgrade option and the size of such jetways seems to be fixed so it might be easier.
Finally, still big shout out to all the devs, and thank you guys for reading this.
And thanks for voting for the feature!
Just got some new thoughts. I’m not sure about the mechanism of jetways. We can see pax walking into the plane on a remote stand but we can only see pax walking into the bridge. Are pax still walking into the plane or they just spawn at the end of the jetway? If it’s the former, it’d be nice to see some transparent texture so it’s more intuitive. If it’s the latter, it seems easier for us to have a customized jetway?
