Jet Blue takes off from Bradley to DC

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is flying round-trip to Washington, D.C. to highlight new nonstop service from Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks.

Malloy, the executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority and executives from JetBlue Airways Corp. Thursday discussed the new, daily, nonstop round-trip service from Bradley to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

JetBlue begins two daily, nonstop flights between Hartford and Washington’s Reagan National Airport (DCA). The first leaves at 6:24 a.m. The other departs at 6:30 p.m.

United and US Airways are the only other airlines from Bradley with direct service to DC.

Malloy planned to board the flight and travel to Washington for a second news conference about the new service, scheduled approximately two-and-a-half hours later.

A spokesman for the governor said Malloy had no other events scheduled in Washington on Thursday and would not be leaving the terminal. He said Malloy planned to immediately fly back to Connecticut after the second news conference was finished.
