Airline adds nonstop flight to Vegas from Bradley Airport
WINDSOR LOCKS, CT (WFSB) - The Connecticut Airport Authority gave an update on summer travel out of Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks.
Frontier Airlines announced a new non-stop flight to Las Vegas from Bradley.
The announcement happened 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday in front of the Frontier Airlines ticket counter.
The new destination will be added on Aug. 9.
Flights will start at $99 for a one way ticket.
Frontier said it will eventually offer seven different destinations from Bradley.
“It’s a growing region and so passengers are looking to go on holiday, to go on vacation to see friends and relatives,” said Will Evans, Frontier Airlines. “Our slogan is ‘low fares done right’ and we want to offer the most valuable experience for our customers.”
The CAA said it expects Bradley to meet or even exceed pre-COVID pandemic levels of vacation travel. It estimated about 10,000 people every day will fly through the airport this summer.
It recommended that people get to the airport 90 minutes before their flights.
However, the CAA said business travel remained down as a result of COVID. It hoped it would pick up by the end of 2022.
