Bradley International Airport is a joint civil-military public airport located in Windsor Locks on the border with East Granby and Suffield, in Hartford County, Connecticut, United States. It is owned by the State of Connecticut.

The airport is situated in the towns of Windsor Locks, Suffield and East Granby, about halfway between Hartford and Springfield. It is Connecticut's busiest commercial airport with 350 daily operations, and the second-busiest airport in New England after Boston's Logan International Airport. The three largest carriers at Bradley International Airport are Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines and US Airways with market shares of 25.8%, 20.5%, and 9.0% respectively. Continental Airlines and United Airlines, which are owned by the same company, have a combined market share of about 15%. As a dual-use military facility with the U.S. Air Force, the airport is also home to Bradley Air National Guard Base and the 103d Airlift Wing (103 AW) of the Connecticut Air National Guard.

In 2008, Bradley was ranked the 55th busiest airport in the United States by number of passengers enplaned. Bradley is branded as the "Gateway to New England" and is also home to the New England Air Museum.

The now defunct Bradlees department store chain was named after the airport, when investors held a meeting there.
