Pittsburgh International Airport June 2007 Passenger Traffic Report

PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT JUNE 2007 PASSENGER TRAFFIC REPORT

  • Traffic up 3.5 percent
  • Seven airlines report increased traffic
  • US Open increases general aviation operations at PIT and AGC

PITTSBURGH, PA (August 23, 2007) – Passenger traffic grew by 3.5 percent in June 2007, compared to June 2006, at Pittsburgh International Airport (www.FlyPittsburgh.com) according to the June 2007 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report prepared by the Allegheny County Airport Authority. Seven airlines reported increases, three of which showed gains of more than 20 percent.

General aviation operations were up about 3.6 percent at both Pittsburgh International Airport and Allegheny County Airport due in part to corporate jet traffic related to the US Open Golf Tournament in Oakmont.

June 2007 is the fourth month this year to show year-over-year passenger growth – 946,379 in 2007 vs. 914,766 in 2006. This is significant because in all of 2006, only two months indicated year-over-year positive passenger growth.

“The first half of the 2007 has shown consistent growth as passengers are taking advantage of different airlines and lower airfares. June’s increases also reflect the launch of the busy summer travel season in Pittsburgh,” said Kent G. George, Executive Director, Allegheny County Airport Authority.

Delta Air Lines reported a 27.9 percent increase in passengers (83,212 June 2007 vs. 65,078 June 2006), a gain of more than 18,000 passengers. Southwest Airlines added more than 26,000 passengers for a 22.9 percent increase (143,550; 116,825), while AirTran Airways gained almost 7,000 passengers (36,761; 30,112).

Those three were followed by United, which increased 13.1 percent (71,472/63,192), American, which showed a 9.3 percent increase (41,537; 38,016), Continental had a 6 percent increase (43,317; 40,849) and Midwest, which showed a gain of 4.8 percent (9,575; 9,139).

JetBlue had 27,774 passengers in June 2007 and began service at Pittsburgh International Airport on June 30, 2006.

The increases reported by the seven airlines outpaced the losses reported by US Airways, which showed a decrease of more than 63,000 passengers for a 13 percent loss comparing June 2007 with June 2006 (422,768; 485,978). Northwest (45,331/45,464; 0.3 percent), USA3000 (14,290/15,080; 5.2 percent) and Air Canada (3,877/4,076; 4.9 percent) were the only airlines to report decreases in traffic.

Airport-wide, year-to-date figures show traffic 1.4 percent ahead of last year’s pace (4,957,272/4,888,445; 1.4 percent).
