Passengers flying out of Bradley International Airport will be able to fly directly to Memphis this summer.
Bradley and Northwest Airlines are announcing that daily nonstop seasonal service to Memphis International Airport will begin on June 16.
The chairman of the airport's board of governors says the value of this new service will be further multiplied because passengers can use it to connect to other flights offered by Northwest Airlines at Bradley.
Northwest says the daily flights to Memphis, complement daily service to Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Indianapolis and Amsterdam.
The service will be operated by Northwest Airlink partner Pinnacle Airlines using 50 seat jets. (AP)
