Fuel Problem Blamed for Flight Delays at Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport

Fuel Problem Blamed for Flight Delays at Connecticut’s Bradley International AirportFlight delays during winters are common due to weather related issues like fog but this time at the Connecticut airport the story was something different. It was all due to lack of fuel at the right time.

Flight delays at the Bradley International Airport in Connecticut are being blamed at shortage of fuel caused by delayed delivery.

Six flights at the airport were delayed due to the supply scarcity. Some of the passengers said that they had to wait for almost forty five minutes and some say they were stranded in planes that were left on the on the runways.

Kevin Dillon, the executive director of Connecticut Airport Authority said fuel which was supposed to be delivered in the afternoon on Wednesday to the airport in Windsor Locks, could not arrive due to a pump problem in New Haven.

According to Dillon, periodically fuel for the airplanes is delivered to the airport through a pipeline from New Haven. But a company operating a fuel farm in New Haven which also supplies the airport with fuel delivers most of the fuel in trucks.
