This less familiar view of Bradley International Airport shows the “air side” of the terminal, seen from across the field near the air museum and the control tower. From the left: two American Airlines jets parked at their loading spots at the end of the concourse, several empty walkways along the concourse, the terminal building itself, the eight-story Sheraton Hotel, and a portion of the parking garages.

The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is pleased to announce that Condé Nast Traveler released the results of its 31st annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Bradley International Airport recognized as the 3rd best airport in the U.S.

“We are very honored to be recognized among some of our nation’s best airports,” said Tony Sheridan, Chair of the Connecticut Airport Authority Board of Directors. “Recognition like this elevates our brand not only regionally, but also nationally and internationally, and I’d like to thank the entire CAA staff for everything they do to make Bradley International Airport one of the very best in the country.”

“We are thankful that the support of Bradley’s loyal, growing passenger base has again earned us a spot in the list of top ten US airports, and we’re especially pleased with the improved ranking this year,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “This prestigious recognition is a testament to our continuous commitment to enhancing the travel experience at Bradley International Airport. We’ve very proud of our efforts to make Bradley Airport the best it can be for our passengers, and we thank them for their vote of confidence.

The CAA has initiated major terminal enhancements at Bradley International Airport over the last couple of years aimed at elevating the travel experience. Recent upgrades include the addition of Two Roads Tap Room, Escape Lounge, a Phillips Seafood restaurant, a duty-free shop, and a mother’s nursing room – and more improvements are underway. Additionally, the expansion of the airport’s route network continues to be a priority. The airport recently launched its latest nonstop to St. Louis.

Nearly half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted a recording-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognitions of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”
