Bradley International Expects To See Arrivals Tuesday Night


Airlines cancelled thousands of flights across the Northeast over the past two days as a storm blanketed the region with snow. But, Bradley International Airport expects to see commercial flights arriving soon.Commercial activity stopped at Bradley International around 7:30 Monday night, but the airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut stayed open throughout the storm. Kevin Dillon, executive director of Connecticut’s Airport Authority, says Delta Airlines expects to bring in five flights starting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“Which is good news not only to get some folks that are looking to come back to the area, back into the area, but does that give us aircraft to make up some earlier morning departures from the airport tomorrow as well,” said Dillon.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Dillon said Bradley’s runways were clear, although the airport had no aircraft. He said other airlines plan to resume operations at Bradley Wednesday, with arrivals starting around 7 A.M.

Since airlines cancelled flights early on, Dillon said just one traveler was stranded at Bradley International during the storm.
