Officials eye growth for Groton-New London, Bradley airports

Dillon said he wants to restore commercial service at Groton-New London, with service to Washington, D.C., being a goal that makes sense for the airport to pursue. Though the restoration of commercial service has been an elusive goal so far, he said he has a good sense that there is commitment from local businesses to support such service. “I believe Bradley can become a 10 million passenger airport,” Dillon said. “Last year we handled 6.5 million passengers, so there’s the potential for a lot of growth occurring at the airport.” To prepare for the growth, a master plan has been developed for the next 20 years that outlines upwards of $1.4 billion of improvements at Bradley, including a new transportation center, he said.
