Cargo volume soars for Pittsburgh Airport
Mar 29, 2017: Pittsburgh International Airport has seen 5.9 percent increase in cargo volume year-to-date, and mail was up 2.3 percent. These statistics point to an increasingly healthy and improving regional economy.
Passenger traffic continues to grow at a healthy rate at the airport through the first two months of 2017, bolstered by new flights and additional capacity.
In the month of February, the airport saw 564,135 passengers. This is a 1.7 percent increase above February 2016 which had 554,846 passengers, and the most passengers of any February since 2008. The airport has also seen a 3.4 percent increase in total passengers year-to-date, with 1,153,098 passengers in 2017 compared with 1,114,893 passengers in 2016.
Additionally, available seats and flights at Pittsburgh International also increased in February. New service added in 2016 by Southwest to Los Angeles and St. Louis, as well as capacity growth by JetBlue to Boston and by Delta to Atlanta and Detroit, have contributed to the increases, which translate to more passengers.
“Our market is growing based on the new service, and we’re excited about additional domestic and international routes that will be starting this spring and summer,” said Christina Cassotis, CEO, Allegheny County Airport Authority.
