Remember when you could fly from Bradley International Airport non-stop to Denver, Colorado? Frontier Airlines' stint in Windsor Locks lasted for a little over a year but now there is a new daily non-stop flight that will take you to the Rockies.
Starting on Sunday, March 14, travelers can fly to Denver nonstop from Bradley International Airport seven days a week thanks to Southwest Airlines.
The new service will provide travelers with the only nonstop flight between Denver and the Hartford area since 2007.
The all-Boeing 737 fleet will fly Sunday through Friday from Bradley at 8:10 a.m., arriving to Denver International Airport at 10:30 a.m. The return flight leaves Denver at 3:45 p.m., arriving at Bradley at 9:30 p.m. The Saturday flight leaves Bradley at 9:05 a.m., arriving 11:25 a.m. Another Saturday flight leaves Denver at 11:20 a.m., arriving at 5:05 p.m. to Bradley.
People are apparently eager to leave town and head to Colorado, perhaps to ski because all the snow is gone here.
"The first week of bookings are very strong and advance reservations for this new route continue to trend up. Skiers are thrilled about this new low-cost service, along with local business travelers who finally have an alternative to flying to the Rockies instead of first driving to Boston or New York," said Bradley Airport administrator Eric Waldron.
