Southwest's Bradley-to-St. Louis flights debut in Aug.

Southwest Airlines will offer, starting later this summer, daily service between Connecticut's Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks and St. Louis, Mo., using 143-seat Boeing 737s, aviation authorities say.

The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA), Bradley's operator, and Dallas-based Southwest announced Thursday the service will debut Aug. 7 to and from the St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

St. Louis will be Southwest's 10th nonstop destination from Bradley since the airline began service there in 1999.

The daily flights from Bradley are scheduled for 11:10 a.m. (EST), with an arrival at St. Louis Lambert at 12:45 p.m. (CST). Inbound flights leave St. Louis at 4:25 p.m. (CST), arriving arrive Bradley at 7:50 p.m. (EST).

The positive development follows a recent decision earlier this month by United Airlines to temporarily suspend nonstop flights between Bradley and Houston. Norwegian Air also halted service from Bradley to Scotland in January due to higher-duty costs for passengers in Edinburgh.
