GATES ADDED AT AIRSIDE CONCOURSE A AT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
- WALL REMOVED TO REOPEN 10 GATES AT THE END OF THE CONCOURSE
- AIRLINE AND CONCESSION CHANGES PROMPT CONCOURSE EXTENSION
PITTSBURGH, PA (September 13, 2013) –The Allegheny County Airport Authority has reopened 10 gates at the end of Airside Concourse A by removing a wall. The additional gates will accommodate airline gate operations. The wall was put up in 2008 in order to save money on maintenance after US Airways eliminated hub operations at PIT. It was taken down on August 22, 2013.
Changes that prompted this move include a request from Southwest Airlines to park aircraft overnight at some of those gates and United Airlines’ move to Concourse A, even gate numbers A2 through A12. Southwest Airlines is in the process of acquiring AirTran Airways. United Airlines recently completed its takeover of Continental Airlines and had operated from Concourse C.
Eateries also arrived on Concourse A including a re-opened Quaker Steak & Lube and Mayorga Coffee Roasters Express.
