Lamont’s economic recovery plan. We see great long-term potential for our business in Connecticut, as it becomes an increasingly attractive place to live and work. Additionally, the simplified travel advisory gives clarity to everyone who needs or wants to travel through Bradley International Airport.”
“The Connecticut Airport Authority has made great strides over the years enhancing our routes from Bradley International Airport and today’s announcement from JetBlue is a significant milestone,” added Connecticut Airport Authority Board Chair Thomas A. “Tony” Sheridan. “These routes will link our state to major new business and leisure destinations, and this strong move by JetBlue gives regional travelers all the more reason to choose Bradley Airport for their travel needs.”
“We are thrilled that JetBlue has taken the step to strengthen their presence and route network at Bradley Airport with this impressive launch of four new cities,” noted Kevin A.
