Southwest Airlines will begin a daily nonstop flight between Bradley and Denver in March.
Tickets are on sale for $79 each way, totaling $179.20 for a round trip when taxes and fees are included.
Frontier Airlines had flown a daily nonstop between Bradley and Denver, but canceled it last September.
Southwest has been expanding rapidly in Denver. Along with Bradley, it is adding daily nonstops to Boise, Ontario, Detroit and Dulles.
Why did I not have this story when Southwest announced it this morning? Because I was traveling all day. On Southwest.
Oh, the irony. The bitter, bitter irony ….
