The bronchus or bronchi are the two main air passages that branch off from the trachea and lead into the lungs. They further divide into smaller airways called bronchioles within the lungs. The bronchi are lined with cilia, hair like structures that help move mucus and particles out of your lungs. The bronchi are divided into three sections the primary, secondary, and tertiary bronchi each getting progressively smaller.
