Flights Begin to Land at Bradley Airport

Blizzard Affects Air Travel

(Published Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015)

Bradley International Airport closed to air traffic at 7 p.m. Monday due to rapidly deteriorating weather conditions, and airport officials said no outgoing flights will take off until at least Wednesday.

Most airlines began canceling flights Monday evening. Although outbound flights remain at a standstill, Bradley Airport began accepting arrivals Tuesday evening.

"We're anticipating five Delta arrivals coming in from Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis," explained airport Executive Director Kevin Dillon.

It could take a day or two for the airport to resume normal operations since departures can't leave until after arrivals land, and most won't come in until the morning.

"Those arrivals typically start around 7 or 8 in the morning, so any departures prior to that are most likely going to be canceled," Dillon said.
