WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) – The first flight to the area from San Juan, Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria devastated the island has arrived at Bradley International Airport.
The JetBlue flight landed in Windsor Locks around 2:45 p.m. on Friday. Bradley’s lone Jet Blue flight to and from San Juan was cancelled for several weeks due to the hurricane damage in Puerto Rico.
22News spoke with Springfield resident Aramis Rodriguez, who was waiting for Friday’s flight. He told us his son was on board and coming to the area to finish high school.
“I’m very glad that my son is here and I’ll help him out as much as I can,” Rodriguez said. “I’m extremely joyful to see him very soon coming down. He just told me that he’s here!”
