American Adds Flights as Other Airlines Lose Traffic, Scale Back
Pfister, Bonnie, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Passenger traffic at Pittsburgh International Airport continued to decline through the spring, but American Airlines bucked that trend Friday and expanded service to Dallas/Fort Worth.
Overall, passenger traffic fell 11 percent in May compared to May 2008, with 698,422 passengers enplaning and deplaning, officials with Allegheny County Airport Authority said at a board meeting yesterday. The decrease was driven by the continued downsizing of US Airways, whose traveler numbers declined 16 percent to 210,569 in May.
Southwest Airlines, the second-busiest carrier at the Findlay- based facility, reported its traffic inched down by 2 percent, to 135,550.
