Construction Advisory

Construction Advisory: While minimal impact is expected to traffic, passengers are advised that construction is in progress on the arrivals and departures roadways. The construction, which is part of the airport’s continued improvement efforts, involves essential viaduct repairs, rehabilitation of driving surfaces, and enhancement to pedestrian safety. The project will last from May 1, 2023 through mid-December 2023. Lane closures will be ongoing throughout the duration of the project, with signage in place to direct traffic as needed. Please follow signage closely upon arrival at the airport.

Important Travel Information

We look forward to welcoming you to Bradley International Airport!

Travelers are advised to arrive early and follow guidance from federal agencies as well as the airport’s airline partners for a smooth travel experience. Those traveling are encouraged to plan and come to the airport prepared.

To help navigate the journey quickly and smoothly, passengers are encouraged to follow these tips:

Confirm Your Flight

Before you arrive to the airport, confirm your flight with your airline and check-in for your flight online at home. Flight information is also available on Bradley International Airport’s website.

Arrive Early

Travelers who need assistance from an airline are advised to arrive at the ticket counter at least 90 minutes prior to their flight’s departure – or three hours if they are traveling internationally.

Plan for Parking

Bradley Airport offers several parking options within a short distance from the terminal. Free shuttle service is provided from the surface lots. Automated easy access and departure through the cashier-less lanes is available. Visit the airport’s parking website ahead of your arrival for the latest information on parking options and follow directional signage at the airport to guide you to open lots.

Follow TSA Screening Guidelines

Have your identification documents ready and pack properly to help speed-up your screening process. Information on prohibited items and how to prepare for the TSA screening, can be found on the TSA’s website or by contacting the agency by phone, online, or on social media.

*New: The airport has introduced liquid disposal units at the main TSA checkpoint, allowing passengers to dispose of liquids prior to the TSA screening in order to comply with liquid rules. Also, individuals who inadvertently travel with a small-sized prohibited item, will have the choice to ship the item to themselves (for a fee), instead of having it collected by the TSA.

Try Mobile Food Ordering
Take your planning to the next level and skip the wait. Mobile food ordering at BDL is simple and does not require the download of an app. To browse menus, order, and pay, simply log on to or scan one of the many QR codes on display throughout the airport. Once an order is placed, you’ll receive updates on your mobile device, letting you know when your order is ready for pick-up.
