The passenger walkway markings at Gates 12 to 14 be modified to suit the types of aircraft most frequently using these positions (SAAB and Metroliner).

Since 3 types of aircraft (HS748; Saab; Metroliner) commonly use these gates, and may park facing either north or south depending on weather conditions, the profusion of lines necessary to provide guidance from Terminal to aircraft door would confuse rather than assist passenger.

It was agreed that passenger guidance lines between Terminal and wing-tip clearance lines would be more helpful to passengers, particularly when linked to positive supervision of passengers by airline company staff.

The modified passenger guidance lines were installed during June-July 1991.
