PITTSBURGH, PA (September 8, 2006) – JetBlue Airlines got off to a flying start at Pittsburgh International Airport, cracking the airport’s top ten in number of passengers in its first full month of operation in Pittsburgh. The July 2006 Scheduled Airline Traffic Report for Pittsburgh International Airport shows JetBlue had 23,342 passengers for the month, making it the ninth busiest airline. This report is compiled monthly by the Allegheny County Airport Authority.

JetBlue began service in Pittsburgh on June 30, 2006 with daily direct flights, four to New York and two to Boston. Pittsburgh flyers can connect to more than 25 other cities on JetBlue.

“We are very pleased with JetBlue’s first month performance,” said Kent G.

We will continue to develop opportunities for all of the airlines at Pittsburgh International Airport and work to expand service for our customers.”
