PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PASSENGER TRAFFIC REPORT FOR NOVEMBER 2008

  • AirTran increases more than 43 percent

PITTSBURGH, PA (December 12 2008) – More than 630,000 scheduled passengers were enplaned and deplaned at Pittsburgh International Airport (www.FlyPittsburgh.com) in November 2008, bringing the yearly total to 8,008,134 according to the November 2008 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report, prepared by the Allegheny County Airport Authority. Passenger traffic is down 16.6 percent for November 2008 compared to November 2007 (636,457/763,563 in November 2008/763,563 in November 2007; 16.6 percent) and is down 11.9 percent year-to-date compared to 2007 (8,008,134/9,086,026; 11.9 percent).

Two airlines reported increases in traffic for the month led by AirTran, which showed a 43.3 percent increase in traffic (49,875/34,794; 43.3 percent). Myrtle Beach Direct Air reported a 9.2 percent increase (1,514/1,386; 9.2 percent).

Airlines that reported decreases for the month were: US Airways (208,860/295,099; 29.2 percent); Southwest (108,516/121,352; 10.6 percent); Delta (71,187/85,746; 17.0 percent); United (51,207/55,905; 8.4 percent); Continental (44,482/45,382; 2.0 percent); Northwest (38,241/38,502; 0.7 percent); American (35,569/37,185; 4.3 percent); JetBlue (12,629/19,746; 36.0 percent); USA3000 (7,186/15,474; 53.6 percent); Midwest (4,308/9,971; 56.8 percent); Air Canada (2,883/3,021; 4.6 percent).

“This is a direct reflection of the economy,” said Bradley D. Penrod, Executive Director and CEO of the Allegheny County Airport Authority. “The airlines drastically cut service in the fall and business and leisure travel have been severely affected by current economic conditions. Still, AirTran has been able to continue to grow here by increasing its service to important Florida markets.”

Year-to-date figures show that nine airlines have increased passenger traffic in 2008 compared to 2007, led by AirTran’s 26.4 percent increase (469,325/371,355; 26.4 percent). The Atlanta-based airline is followed by Southwest (1,350,301/1,281,017; 5.4 percent); Delta (907,896/864,711; 5.0 percent); United (721,982/672,885; 7.3 percent); Continental (509,136/460,987; 10.4 percent); Northwest (471,364/462,319; 2.0 percent) USA 3000 (173,503/151,684; 14.4 percent); Air Canada (41,559/36,124; 15.0 percent); Myrtle Beach Direct Air (26,937/20,483; 31.5 percent).
