WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) — A daily nonstop flight from Bradley International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport will soon be launched.

The service will begin on June 2. Up to 150 passengers will be able to leave Connecticut at 7 a.m. and arrive in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. The return flight will be scheduled to leave Los Angeles at 9 p.m. and arrive at Bradley at 5:20 the next morning.

“This new flight further connects us to the world – it’s good for business and it’s good for residents,” Governor Malloy said in a press release. “Our future as a state is linked directly to our transportation system, and as we build up Bradley Airport, we are helping businesses large and small. This announcement is indeed another step forward for Connecticut.”

Tickets will go on sale Saturday.
