Journey Series: 5 Ways Bradley International Airport is Improving Your Travel Experience with Airport Upgrades

If you are a traveler, you know that all the little details can quickly add up to create an overall experience. At Bradley International, our aim is to make that experience as relaxed, convenient, and easy as possible. In short, we want you to love the journey. Here are 5 airport upgrades we’re working on to improve your travel experience!

 1. On-Site Transportation Center

Additional public parking, on-site car rentals, and increased access to public transit will all be part of the new “Ground Transportation Center” connected to Terminal A. Construction to launch this year.

2. Indoor Pet Relief Area

Recently, we opened a new, post-security, indoor pet relief area—which is a welcome addition to our two outdoor areas. Special thanks to the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation for their invaluable input during the design phase of the project.

3. Baggage Claim Makeover

Along with our new Information Center and elevator, which were recently completed, the baggage claim area will be getting a makeover. Plans are underway, with upgrades slated to begin next year.

4. Upgrades to Concessions

One of our favorite places to grab a bite before your flight— Black Bear Saloon— just wrapped up undergoing renovations. Expect to see a new look when you visit it next!

5. Upgraded Restrooms

Take a peek into Bradley’s powder rooms in the coming year. Our restrooms are being upgraded with a fresh, modern look! First set of updated restrooms will be opened this summer.
