PIT Airport January 2008 Passenger Traffic Report

PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PASSENGER TRAFFIC REPORT FOR JANUARY 2008

  • Eight airlines report increases in traffic

PITTSBURGH, PA (March 14, 2008) – A total of eight airlines reported passenger increases in January 2008 compared to January 2007 at Pittsburgh International Airport (www.FlyPittsburgh.com) according to the January 2008 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report, prepared by the Allegheny County Airport Authority.

A total of 642,552 scheduled passengers were enplaned and deplaned at the airport in January 2008, a 9.6% decrease compared to January 2007 (642,552 in January 2008/711,089 in January 2008; 9.6% decrease). However, combined passenger traffic for 12 of 13 airlines, shows an overall increase of 14.8% (405,667/353,328; 14.8%)

That growth is reflective of six airlines which posted increases from 12% to 72.2%. Leading the gainers were Southwest Airlines, which reported a 33.4% increase in passengers (102,674/76,967; 33.4%) and USA3000, which gained almost 8,000 passengers in realizing a 72.2% jump in traffic (18,358/10,663; 72.2%). Delta (74,505/58,230; 27.9%), AirTran (25,525/21,598; 18.2%), Midwest (6,536/5,836; 12%) and Air Canada (2,871/1,839; 56.1%) also reported double-digit increases. Southwest’s increase is due to increased number of flights to Baltimore. USA 3000 has added flights to Ft. Lauderdale and Montego Bay, Jamaica, that can account for its increases.

“Pittsburgh International Airport is now an airport where most passengers begin and end their air travel. We continue to work with the airlines to make the transition from a hub smooth and successful for the region’s travelers,” Allegheny County Airport Authority Executive Director Bradley D. Penrod said. “The factors that help us achieve that success is by offering more airline choices and lower, competitive fares. The increases reported today are evidence that the public is responding to the changes.”

In fact, fares at Pittsburgh International Airport have decreased by 27 percent and average $140, making them among the lowest in the United States.

US Airways will be adding to their schedule in July. US Airways will add a second daily non-stop flight to Los Angeles and San Francisco. These flights will leave in the morning and the red-eye flight will also continue as scheduled. “These west coast flights are very important to meeting the needs of the region. The business travelers have a strong interest in increasing this frequency,” Penrod stated.
