The second-largest airport in New England, Bradley International Airport serves over 6 million passengers every year. It is located about five miles north of downtown Hartford in Connecticut, and several different airline companies from all around the world travel to and from BDL Airport such as United Airlines, Air Canada, and Southwest Airlines.

There’s official airport parking at Bradley Airport, but this is usually the priciest option, so if you’re on a budget then you can also find more affordable off-airport parking. Numerous lots for cheap parking near Bradley Airport can be found a short distance from the terminal and offer both short and long term parking. We’ve picked out three below.
