In response to COVID-19 Bradley International Airport heightened its commitment to passengers with the introduction of a comprehensive safety program called BDL cares. This program includes a face-covering requirement for employees and passengers, additional cleaning, physical distancing reminders, plexiglass shields at customer interaction points, and hand sanitizer stations throughout the terminal. Most recently, the airport launched a COVID-19 testing site for passengers located in the baggage claim area.

Bradley International Airport is the second largest airport in New England. It is operated by the Connecticut Airport Authority and its operations are entirely self-funded. The airport contributes nearly $3.6 billion to the regional economy.
