Bradley International Airport Cuts the Ribbon on New Ground Transportation Center Facility to Open to the Public in July

On June 30th, the Connecticut Airport Authority celebrated the anticipated opening of its Ground Transportation Center at Bradley International Airport with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

After five years of planning and construction, which took place at the height of the COVID-19
pandemic, the new $210 million state-of-the-art facility is on track to open to the public in mid July.
When it opens, it will provide an elevated passenger experience, with improved access to rental
cars, more parking, and future options for public transit.

“The Ground Transportation Center will dramatically improve the passenger experience at
Bradley International Airport for both arrivals and departures,” said Connecticut Governor Ned
Lamont. “Those of us who live in Connecticut know how convenient it is to fly in and out of
Bradley. It was one of our best-kept secrets, but now that secret is out. This new facility, built
without the use of taxpayer funds, is key to Bradley’s position as an essential economic driver for
our state and is already helping to bring new airlines and destinations that benefit our residents
and businesses.”

“Today, we celebrate a significant milestone in Bradley International Airport’s history,” said
Connecticut Airport Authority Board of Directors Chair Tony Sheridan. “Despite the setbacks of
the COVID-19 pandemic, the construction of the airport’s new Ground Transportation Center has
been achieved on time and on budget. Without a doubt, this has been a massive undertaking,
and we extend our gratitude to all our partners on the successful completion of this major
passenger enhancement.”
