Windsor Locks, CONN. – March 8, 2022 – The Connecticut Airport Authority is pleased to announce that Breeze Airways is expanding at Bradley International Airport.

The new destinations include Nashville, TN; Akron/Canton, OH; Savannah, GA; Richmond, VA; Jacksonville, FL; and Sarasota/Bradenton, FL.
“As both a Board Member and Connecticut resident, I’m doubly happy to be at Bradley International today to announce six new nonstops from Hartford, bringing Breeze’s total destinations served from here to ten,” said Trey Urbahn, Breeze Airways Board Member. “The expansion is a result of the warm welcome we’ve received in Connecticut. Keep flying us and we’ll keep adding more and more flights.”

Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “The six new destinations are a major addition to our route network, supporting continued and strategic growth at Bradley International Airport. We are very pleased to partner with Breeze as they continue to increase their national presence and to offer our passengers added travel options with the introduction of these exciting destinations.”

The new routes will be operated with Breeze’s fleet of brand-new Airbus A220s, except for the Bradley International Airport to Richmond flights. Other than Nashville, all the destinations are brand new routes to Bradley International Airport.
