Information on Pittsburgh International Airport

Pittsburgh International Airport

Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) is the second busiest passenger airport in Pennsylvania and 47th-busiest in the United States, serving 8,710,291 passengers in 2008 on 167,729 aircraft operations. The airport has the longest runways of a commercial airport in Pennsylvania at 11,500 feet. Until 2004, US Airways operated its largest hub at PIT. As of 2008, the airline remains PIT's largest carrier (handling 33 percent of passengers). Also, Trans World Airlines operated a hub at the old airport from the 1960s to 1985. Southwest Airlines began service at the airport in May 2005 and is currently the third largest airline in Pittsburgh with nonstop service to 7 destinations and more than 20 daily flights. The airline has numerous times indicated an interest in expanding at the airport, however Southwest has slowed all expansion due to the 2008-2009 economic slowdown and high airport costs. After the merger with Northwest Airlines was completed on January 1, 2010, Delta Air Lines surpassed Southwest Airlines as the airport's second largest carrier by daily departures, which averages 31 per day compared with Southwest's 22 flights per day. Even with all its recent cuts, US Airways will still remain the airport's dominant carrier by both passengers carried and daily departures, which currently averages just over 50 per day. US Airways currently utilizes ten gates, more than any other airline at PIT, followed by Delta which operates five gates.

The airport offers service to the United States, Canada, Mexico, Caribbean, and Europe. Nonstop transatlantic service resumed on June 3, 2009 when Delta Air Lines began flights to Paris. The new service operates 5 days a week and was made possible by Delta's successful joint-venture with Air France.

PIT has been frequently recognized for its quality in meeting travelers' needs. OAG Worldwide listed the facility to its short list of the world's best airports for four consecutive years. The market research leader, JD Power and Associates named PIT among the top five airports in its two most recent customer satisfaction surveys. Conde Nast Traveler's Magazine named PIT the best in the United States and third in the world in its 2000 People's Choice Award.
