You can check the flight status for a few days to see if there is a tendency for that to be the case, but you'd have to know the gates that work with remote stands. There is no guarantee and it may be dependent on the aircraft in position on the day of travel.

Ryanair strongly prefer not to use jetways as they believe they slow down turnrounds between flights. Their ideal is a stand at which which passengers can walk to or from the terminal, as they don't have to pay for either jetways or buses. At Birmingham a remote stand and buses are the most likely but there is no certainty.

All FR flights from BHX use the old Eurohub terminal (shared with Flybe) and use jetways (aka airbridge/jetbridge) BUT only to the tarmac where you then walk to the aircraft steps to board.

I have never had to travel to a remote stand,all my FR flights have been at gates, with jetway adjacent.

Incidentally, Flybe pay for the use of jetway and most flights are boarded that way.

Reverse happens on your return.
