Passengers Encouraged to Follow Bradley International Airport on Twitter


Bradley International Airport (BDL) has joined Twitter and is encouraging travelers to sign up for automatic, informative tweets on weather delays, travel tips and events at New England’s second-largest airport. Anyone can follow BDL tweets by going to or clicking on the familiar Twitter bird icon now featured on the airport’s home page,

“When people are traveling, up-to-date information is critical. Bradley customers can now ensure that they’re getting the latest through our tweets,” said Mary Ellen Jones, Chairwoman of the Connecticut Airport Authority, which oversees Bradley along with the Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT). “Travelers should also check with their air carriers regarding specific flights, but the addition of Twitter will help round out Bradley’s overall customer communication and service efforts.”

Often, weather or other conditions in a distant city can have a direct impact on flights arriving from or departing for that city. So, a typical tweet might be, “Denver Airport is experiencing some delays due to weather in the Denver area. Contact your airline for the latest information.”

“Receiving Bradley tweets could not be easier – just sign up and stay up to the minute,” said DOT Commissioner James P. Redeker. “Whether you’re heading out or trying to get home, you can never have too much information about your flight. Please go to the Bradley website and sign up today!”

Please note that BDL will be sending tweets only, not responding to tweets from individuals.

Bradley International Airport, located in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, is the second largest in New England and serves an extensive geographic area, as its customer base 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.
