Bradley International Airport to open new, $210 million transportation center as summer air travel increases; tips for smoother start to vacations

With the summer air travel season in full swing, Bradley International Airport said Tuesday it will open its new, $210 million transportation center in mid-July, concentrating all its rental car businesses in one place and adding 850 new parking spaces. Dillon said Bradley is expecting a “heavy summer travel period” at Connecticut’s largest airport which could match — or even exceed — pre-pandemic levels between now and Labor Day. The recovery is driven by leisure travelers, who put off vacations during the height of COVID-19, Dillon said. Business travel, he said, is still lagging but is showing signs of strengthening. Bradley expects to see 10,000 passengers a day, flying out of Bradley this summer, Dillon said.
