Bradley International Airport

Bradley International Airport (IATA: BDL, ICAO: KBDL, FAA LID: BDL) is a civil/military airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, in Hartford County, Connecticut. Owned and operated by the Connecticut Airport Authority, it is the second-largest airport in New England. The airport is about halfway between Hartford and Springfield. It is Connecticut's busiest commercial airport with 350 daily operations and the second-busiest airport in New England after Boston's Logan International Airport. The four largest carriers at Bradley International Airport are Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, and American Airlines with market shares of 28%, 15%, 11%, and 10%, respectively. As a dual-use military facility with the U.S. Air Force, the airport is also home to the 103d Airlift Wing (103 AW) of the Connecticut Air National Guard. In 2014, Bradley was the 53rd busiest airport in the United States by number of passengers enplaned. Bradley is branded as the "Gateway to New England" and is home to the New England Air Museum, and North America's only Flight Simulation conference, FlightSimCon. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a primary commercial service airport (more than 10,000 enplanements per year). The now defunct Bradlees department store chain was named after the airport when investors held a meeting there.
