PIT Terminal A, August 2004

Pittsburgh International Airport is an airport in Findlay Township, Pennsylvania, about 18 miles west of Pittsburgh. It is a focus city of US Airways and its IATA Airport Code is PIT.

Pittsburgh International Airport has five terminals. The airport uses one large passenger screening area which connects to an automated underground tram system which ferries passengers to the intersection of terminals A, B, C, and D. The original design of the air-side terminals included a large amount of retail and restaurant space. The name "Airmall" conveyed the intent to blend the airport with a shopping mall.

  • Passenger travel is up by 4.6 intl. All carriers show an increase except US Airways, which continues to cut flights to and from Pittsburgh International.
  • Pittsburgh International has asked the Department of Homeland Security to allow non-passengers to go to the Air side on off-peak hours. Airmall businesses have seen sales decrease both because of decreased flight schedules and the barring of non-flying visitors from the terminal.
