WINDSOR LOCKS, CONNECTICUT – February 28, 2013 – The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is pleased to announce that the renovations to the Bradley International Airport (BDL) Terminal’s Food Court have been completed. The finished product includes makeovers of 3 food concessions (McDonalds, Fresh City, and Original Pizza), replacement of all Food Court seating, and the installation of additional outlets for customers to utilize in powering/charging their electronic devices.
“The CAA is pleased that the improvements at Bradley Airport to these important food service facilities have been completed in a timely fashion,” remarks Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “We will continue to partner with all BDL vendors in order to offer our customers an up-to-date variety of food service options, which follows the CAA goal of providing superior customer service.”
Bradley International Airport is the second largest airport in New England and serves an extensive geographic area, with a customer base that covers the entire Northeast, including Western Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey. According to the most recent economic impact analysis, Bradley contributes $4 billion in economic activity to the state of Connecticut and the surrounding region, representing $1.2 billion in wages and 18,000 full-time jobs.
The CAA was established in 2011 to develop, improve, and operate Bradley and the state’s five general aviation airports (Danielson, Groton-New London, Hartford-Brainard, Waterbury-Oxford, and Windham). The CAA Board consists of 11 members with a broad spectrum of experience in aviation-related and other industries as well as government. The goal of the CAA is to make Connecticut’s airports, specifically BDL, more attractive to new airlines and bring in new routes, which supports Connecticut’s overall economic development and growth strategy.
