Delta SONG and Bradley International Airport Announce Non-Stop Service Between Hartford, CT and Los Angeles

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn., June 1 /PRNewswire/ — Beginning September 6, 2005, SONG, Delta’s low fare, high style air service, will begin once-daily non-stop jet service between Bradley International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport, CA. This will make Song the only air carrier to offer daily non-stop service between Hartford’s Bradley International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport. “Song’s decision to begin non-stop service to the West Coast is a vote of confidence in Connecticut. The launch of this coast-to-coast service is another sign that Connecticut is a growing market for business and an increasingly attractive destination for leisure travelers. Bradley International is one of the fastest-growing airports in the country. This new service — and the opening this week of the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford — will keep our airport and our economy moving in the right direction,” remarks Governor M. Jodi Rell.

SONG already provides non-stop service from Hartford to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach with 9 flights per day.

The following flight schedule will be operated daily by Song effective September 6, 2005:

To Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), CA
Depart BDL 6:30pm arrive LAX at 8:40pm

To Bradley International Airport (BDL), Windsor Locks, CT
Depart LAX 10:00pm arrive BDL 7:00am the following day

“I am pleased that Song recognizes the value in using this long unserved non-stop destination from Bradley,” State Transportation Commissioner Stephen E. Korta II said. “The service will be a great convenience, reducing travel times to Los Angeles as well as to points beyond the West Coast.”

According to Kiran Jain, Director of Marketing & Route Development, “Non- stop service to the Los Angeles Area has been one of the most requested destinations by the community; and with the addition of this coast to coast service it is obvious that SONG, Delta’s low fare carrier, remains committed to the Hartford market. SONG just gave us one more reason to go to Hollywood!”
