The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is pleased to announce nonstop service to four new destinations from Bradley International Airport on JetBlue. These new destinations include Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and Cancún, Mexico (CUN).
“One of Connecticut’s best competitive assets is its international airport in such close proximity to so many of our communities and employers,” said Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. “This strengthening of the partnership with JetBlue shows once again how important Bradley International Airport is to our present and our future. More routes, and a strong international airport are key to Connecticut’s success.”
“We are excited to roll out these new routes connecting Hartford to some of our largest leisure destinations, bringing more low fares and great service to Connecticut residents,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning at JetBlue. “We are proud to play our part in support of Gov. 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. 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. Dillon, A.A.E, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “JetBlue is an important partner for us, and we are very pleased to see that the airline recognizes the potential of the Bradley Airport market. We are confident that our strengthened partnership will provide major benefits for Connecticut travelers, JetBlue, and Bradley Airport.”
The new service to Cancún, Mexico is slated to commence on Nov. 19, while service to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco are all slated to commence on Dec. 18.
