Bradley International Airport Earns Covid-19 Health Reaccreditation, Continues Commitment to Passenger Safety In 2022

January 2022 — In recognition of its continued health and safety response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bradley International Airport has achieved reaccreditation from the Airports Council International (ACI) World Health Accreditation program.

“Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have increasingly emphasized the implementation of safety protocols at Bradley International Airport to prioritize the well-being of our passengers and employees,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “We are pleased to have our comprehensive response once again recognized through the rigorous ACI health accreditation process. This is a tremendous recognition of our airport-wide commitment to offer the safest facilities possible for all airport users.”

During the extensive accreditation process, ACI assesses the airport’s response and safety measures throughout the entire passenger journey in line with industry best practices. This includes evaluation of the airport’s cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing (where feasible and practical), staff protection, physical layout modifications, passenger communications, and passenger facility enhancements.

The Connecticut Airport Authority voluntary initiated the reassessment after receiving its initial health accreditation from ACI in December 2020.

In addition to surpassing these high industry safety standards, Bradley International Airport offers:

  • Contactless access to the parking garage and surfaces lots through the airport’s free parking rewards program
  • An opportunity to apply for TSA PreCheck at the airport’s enrollment site. TSA PreCheck speeds up the screening process and also helps reduce touchpoints
  • Contactless meal ordering, allowing passengers to easily purchase food online for pick-up on their journey through the airport

Additionally, the airport is continuing to offer voluntary COVID-19 testing for passengers and airport employees in the main terminal’s baggage claim. Free COVID-19 vaccinations/boosters are also available on certain days in the same location. A federal face covering mandate is also in place for everyone, regardless of their vaccination status.
