Bradley Recognized by Condé Nast Traveler Readers as Third-best Airport in the U.S.
WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. — The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) announced that Condé Nast Traveler released the results of its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with Bradley International Airport recognized as the third-best airport in the U.S.
“We are very honored to be recognized among some of our nation’s best airports,” said Tony Sheridan, chair of the CAA board of directors. “Recognition like this elevates our brand not only regionally, but also nationally and internationally, and I’d like to thank the entire CAA staff for everything they do to make Bradley International Airport one of the very best in the country.”
Travelers gave the airport high marks for “convenient on-site parking, plentiful charging stations and free wi-fi, decent restaurant options, and an overall relaxed atmosphere.”
“We are thankful that the support of Bradley’s loyal, growing passenger base has again earned us a spot in the list of top ten U.S. airports, and we’re especially pleased with the improved ranking this year,” said Kevin Dillon, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “This prestigious recognition is a testament to our continuous commitment to enhancing the travel experience at Bradley International Airport. We’re very proud of our efforts to make Bradley Airport the best it can be for our passengers, and we thank them for their vote of confidence.”
The CAA has initiated major terminal enhancements at Bradley over the last couple of years aimed at elevating the travel experience. Recent upgrades include the addition of Two Roads Tap Room, Escape Lounge, a Phillips Seafood restaurant, a duty-free shop, and a mother’s nursing room — and more improvements are underway. Additionally, the expansion of the airport’s route network continues to be a priority, with the airport most recently celebrating the launch of its latest non-stop service to St. Louis.
