Windsor Locks, CT | November 4, 2016 The Connecticut Airport Authority is pleased to announce the opening of a duty free shop at Bradley International Airport.

“The addition of this duty free shop to our menu of services is an important milestone in our continuous terminal transformation process. We’re pleased to now offer our international passengers an opportunity to shop and save on premium items and to expand the shopping options for our domestic passengers,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority.

The new duty free shop is managed by International Shoppes, a specialty retailer with duty free shop operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport and Boston Logan International Airport among others.

“We are excited to expand our operations to Hartford’s Bradley Airport and look forward to providing excellent customer service to its passengers.  Customers can expect a full assortment of duty free liquor and tobacco products as well as duty paid fragrances, skin care sets and confection that can be sold to all customers,” said Matthew Greenbaum, Vice President of the International Shoppes.

The duty free shop is located near Gate 8 and covers approximately 500 square feet.

It will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 AM until 6 PM and on Sundays 12 PM until 6 PM.

Passengers traveling on flights to Dublin, Ireland; Toronto and Montreal, Canada; and on the seasonal flight to Cancun, Mexico are now able to purchase items while exempt from customs duties and applicable consumption, liquor and tobacco taxes.

Passengers traveling to destinations within the U.S. can purchase certain items at the store, however, they are not exempt from the local sales tax.
