The steps are mounted on wheels and are affixed in place by ground staff who ensure that the breaks are securely locked in place before allowing cabin crew to either allow passengers out of the terminal or off of the aircraft. more

Passenger steps, otherwise known as docking stations, are affixed to the side of an aircraft to allow passengers to enter or exit an aircraft. The steps are mounted on wheels and are affixed in place by ground staff who ensure that the breaks are securely locked in place before allowing cabin crew to either allow passengers out of the terminal or off of the aircraft. Sometimes a walkway is also attached. Sets of steps are maintained by ground staff, and are stored in specialised out-buildings to keep them out of any adverse weather conditions that can cause damage or rust whilst not being used. Passenger steps must undergo stringent testing to ensure they are safe for the thousands of passengers that use them every year.
