Airport Administrator Resigns

A man who left a job as director of an airport in Maine to come to Connecticut has resigned as administrator of Bradley International Airport  "for personal reasons," according to the state Department of Transportation.

The State Department of Transportation and the Bradley Airport Board of Directors Friday accepted the resignation of Jeff Schultes, effective May 1.

Schultes had been director of Maine's Portland International Jetport when he was named as Bradley's administrator a year ago.

Schultes started work June 2, 2008 at Bradley, which is New England's second-largest airport behind Logan International in Boston.

“Jeff is a dynamic, proven aviation leader who can take Bradley to new heights of excellence and burnish its strong reputation for customer service,” Gov. M. Jodi Rell said when he was appointed. “This airport has become one of the key drivers of Connecticut’s economy and Jeff is someone who understands the intricacies and challenges of delivering the best in service for the thousands of customers who travel through Bradley every day and the hundreds of businesses using and supporting Bradley operations.”

Until a replacement can be found, the chief of Aviation & Ports, Mark Daley, will be responsible for airport management.

In the last year, the last Amsterdam flight was canceled and there were proposals to privatize the airport.
