Delta says it will add back its L.A. flights in June, flying from Hartford to L.A. daily except Saturday. This will link Connecticut directly with the west coast for the first time in almost two years. Ticket prices for the flight haven’t yet been revealed.
The move marks the restoration of a service that Delta pulled from Bradley in the fall of 2008, part of a general reduction in long haul routes prompted by the recession and high fuel prices. That came at the same time that Northwest Airlines halted Bradley’s first ever international flight, to Amsterdam after just a year in service. The announcement of new west coast flights is the second piece of good news for Connecticut’s biggest airport, after Southwest recently began daily non-stop service to Denver.
