Via Airlines will launch nonstop routes from Bradley International Airport to Pittsburgh International Airport on July 22.

Bradley International Airport will add three new flights to North Carolina, Florida and Pennsylvania by summer this year, according to the Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA).

Frontier Airlines will expand their footprint at Bradley through new nonstop routes to Raleigh-Durham International Airport and Orlando International Airport beginning April 30, CAA announced Wednesday afternoon.

The Colorado-based, low-cost carrier, in December said it will launch nonstop flights from Bradley to Denver in March.

The flights revealed Wednesday will operate seasonally on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Frontier had a Denver-to-Bradley route in March 2007, but cancelled the service more than a year later.

Based in Denver, the carrier returned to Bradley with Milwaukee routes in Sept. 2010 as a subsidiary of Indianapolis-based Republic Airways, but that route was also cancelled in Sept. 2011.

Later Wednesday, CAA announced Bradley will add regional carrier Via Airlines and their nonstop routes to Pittsburgh International Airport on July 22. The Orlando-based airline will run the flight during afternoons year-round on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays.

The Windsor Locks airport, ranked as the nation's third best airfield, hopes to embark on a $1.4 billion master plan that could include numerous improvements over the next two decades. The projects are expected to add millions of additional passengers for the airfield.
