Pennsylvania Celebrates Expanded Flight Service to Pittsburgh International Airport

PennDOT Secretary Mike Carroll joined airport officials and local leaders at the Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) to highlight new Frontier Airlines service out of PIT, which will begin mid-May.

Frontier is growing its presence in Pittsburgh by 600%, including twice daily flights to Philadelphia. This expansion is anticipated to bring $72 million in economic impact to the Pittsburgh region.

“Pittsburgh International Airport is an important economic engine and gateway for Western Pennsylvania – and this expanded service is a significant step forward as we connect Pennsylvania travelers, tourists, and businesses to the rest of the country,” said Governor Shapiro. “Western Pennsylvania is home to some of the greatest cities and towns, most innovative companies, and incredible natural beauty and commonsense infrastructure investments like expanding the number of direct flights from PIT has the potential to build on that growth. We’re getting stuff done in my first year as Governor and this is further proof that when government at all levels works together with business and workers to invest in our communities – we can do big things.”
New Fronter Airlines service from PIT will be:

  • Service from PIT to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will be available twice each day, beginning May 16.
  • Service from PIT to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) will be available three times each week, beginning May 16.
  • Service from PIT to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) will be available four times each week, beginning May 17.
  • Service from PIT to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) will be available four times each week, beginning May 17.

“I’m proud to be here to celebrate the expansion of service at Pittsburgh International Airport. Our airports are gateways to local economies, and the Pittsburgh International Airport is critical to this region,” said PennDOT Secretary Mike Carroll. “This additional service will not only give travelers more options when flying out of Pittsburgh, but will help support good, life-sustaining jobs as well as the regional economy.”
