PITTSBURGH, PA (April 10, 2013) – Four airlines reported an increase in passengers at Pittsburgh International Airport (www.FlyPittsburgh.com) in February 2013 compared to February 2012 according to the February 2013 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report, prepared by the Allegheny County Airport Authority.
A total of 536,705 scheduled passengers were enplaned and deplaned at the airport in February 2013, a 2.6 percent decrease compared to February 2012 (536,705 in February 2013; 551,231 in February 2012; 2.6 percent).
