Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport celebrates the launch of a nonstop service between Hartford, US and Edinburgh, Scotland on Norwegian Air at this year’s WTM London.
The highly anticipated launch of the route is Bradley’s second transatlantic nonstop addition in less than a year.
“With the launch of these new international flights, travellers flying for work or play have even more travel options,” Governor Dannel P. Malloy said.
“Every day more and more passengers are recognizing that Bradley International Airport is faster and more convenient than other nearby airports – and with the addition of new flights to Europe, as well as new destinations across the country, that reputation continues to improve.”
“Four years ago, Norwegian’s low-cost long-haul flights revolutionized transatlantic travel, and we are pleased to pave the way once more with our long-anticipated service, which includes new nonstop flights from Hartford to Scotland. We are fully committed to our promise to bring American travelers more affordable fares and also bring more tourists to Connecticut,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“The addition of this route is an important milestone for the Connecticut Airport Authority,” said Connecticut Airport Authority Board Chairman Charles R. Gray. “This new international route highlights Bradley Airport’s continued growth and is a reflection of Bradley’s growing popularity among European carriers.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Norwegian to Bradley Airport,” said Connecticut Airport Authority Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E. “The CAA is determined to build on Bradley’s strengths and continue our focus to deliver more convenience and connectivity for our region. Flying to Europe from Bradley has never been easier and more affordable.”
Norwegian will operate year-round, three times a week, with a twice-weekly schedule during the winter season. The outbound flight leaves Bradley International Airport at 9:35 PM, with an arrival of 9:30 AM in Edinburgh
