HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut state agency heads are being told to make sure their employees use Bradley International Airport and the state’s other
public airports for any air travel while on official state business
Department of Administrative Services Commissioner Melody Currey recently informed top state officials that Democratic Gov. Dannel P Malloy and the
state’s Office of Policy and Management are directing that state-based public airports be used, provided they’re more cost-effective.
Currey says it’s critical for state government to support Connecticut’s airports and their services “to the greatest extent possible” to ensure Aer
Lingus service and all other nonstop routes at Bradley are successful.
Alisa Sisic, the public information officer for the Connecticut Airport Authority, says her 6-year-old, quasi-public agency doesn’t know how often state
employees have been using other airports.
