Spanish term or phrase: puente (avión)
Sigo con mis dudas... Ahora necesito saber como se llama lo que en Chile llaman "puente" en los aeropuertos. Es el lugar, que normalmente tiene asignado un número, donde ubican la famosa "manga". El avión llega al puente XX y ahí ponen la manga. (No es gate. Pensé en terminal, pero puede entenderse como terminal más amplio (domestic or international, por ejemplo).

Explanation:
Although it may sound strange, this is it, internationally known. It's the "tunnel" that takes you from the waiting area to the aircraft. It is called the "finger" in all languages.
