Bradley Passengers Cautioned on Busy Holiday Travel Period
WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. — Bradley International Airport will experience a very heavy travel period this week and next week due to the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The expected passenger volume will be approximately 10% to 15% higher than normal. Kevin Dillon, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority, advises that Bradley passengers should be aware and plan accordingly.
“We will be ending the year on a busy note, with a large number of travelers traveling through Bradley International Airport in the coming days,” Dillon said. “If you are traveling through the airport during this busy travel period, please give yourself extra time and plan ahead — and we will do everything we can to help you love the journey through the airport.”
Passengers traveling domestically are advised to allow themselves at least 90 minutes for check-in with their respective airlines and processing through the TSA screening. Those traveling internationally should give themselves three hours.
Additionally, passengers are encouraged to follow these tips during this peak travel period: check and confirm the status of your flight with your airline prior to your departure for the airport, visit www.flybdl.org to familiarize yourself with Bradley’s parking options and terminal facilities, and speed up the screening process by reviewing the TSA screening guidelines ahead of time at www.tsa.gov.
