Voice of Travelers to Hartford

Flying to Hartford on a return ticket from Philadelphia

I needed a flight ticket to fly to Hartford. When looking for a ticket with reasonable price, I found a ticket with American Eagle with arrival to Hartford. First, I thought Hartford airport must be far away from downtown Hartford city but according to the map, Hartford is only several miles away from its airport. I purchased the ticket on a ticket portal online. My flight to Hartford was a pleasant one with great service that American Eagle provided onboard - totally worth the ticket price. On the ticket, it said the flight will take 2 hours, yet it was only one hour long. The return ticket was issued for five days later, and I spent the last evening at the Hartford as it was a night flight.

Fast visit of Hartford with an onward ticket

I was looking for a flight ticket for a business trip to Tampa, but there were no direct flights for the date available. I always purchase my ticket at a ticket agent downtown Pittsburgh, and the ticket agent suggested a low cost ticket for my flight to Hartford. I never flew to Hartford before so I was not knowledgeable about what kind of ticket I should get. The ticket was reasonably priced. I decided to leave the airport once in Hartford because my layover was fairly long in Hartford airport. Included in my airfare ticket was a ticket for shuttle from Bradley airport to Hartford, so I had lunch downtown Hartford before flying on from Hartford to Pittsburgh. The airlines did a great job at their service on board, worth the ticket price.
