  • AirTran, American and Myrtle Beach Direct Air report increase in traffic
  • United's service to LAX and SFO to begin Aug. 18

Additionally, the ACAA announced that two United Airlines new nonstop flights from Pittsburgh International Airport to Los Angeles and San Francisco on United Airlines will now begin August 18, 2009.
