· PIT’s international arrivals are now equipped with time-saving global entry kiosks
PITTSBURGH, PA (April 25, 2014) – Because of successful early bookings and peak summer vacation travelers to Europe in 2013, Delta Air Lines will once again resume nonstop service from Pittsburgh International Airport to Paris Charles Gaulle Airport for the sixth consecutive year beginning Sunday, April 27, 2014.
Nonstop Pittsburgh to Paris is the fastest way to get to Europe and beyond. At Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), passengers can connect to 100-plus destinations in Europe, Asia, India and the Middle East on Delta and their SkyTeam partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia. Nonstop transatlantic Pittsburgh to Paris service helps travelers avoid the busiest and most congested U.S. east coast gateways, and offers ease of use of PIT-based Customs and Border Protection.
The return Paris to Pittsburgh departure time will be 1:30 pm, benefiting travelers with return connections to Pittsburgh. Travelers can depart from airports such as London Heathrow, Rome and Madrid and arrive at CDG in plenty of time for the 1:30 pm departure to PIT, and also arrive back in Pittsburgh by 4:20 p.m.
The Paris flight will operate five days a week. This frequency will make booking the nonstop easier. “Delta’s five-day-a-week service to Paris is the most expedient and convenient way to travel to Europe, especially thanks to the reach of Delta, the world’s largest airline, and its partner, Air France,” said David Minnotte, Chairman, Allegheny County Airport Authority.
"Delta is celebrating the sixth consecutive year of Pittsburgh-Paris service in large part due to the commitment and support of the Pittsburgh community,” said Jeff Lobl, Delta’s Managing Director – Trans-Atlantic Network Planning. “We are proud of the ongoing partnership that has enabled us to successfully bridge travel between the Steel City and the City of Lights and beyond."
Flight information: DL 631 departs PIT at 6:35 pm and arrives at Paris CDG at 8:35 am (next day). DL 632 departs Paris CDG at 1:30 pm and arrives at PIT at 4:19 pm. The PIT departures days are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The Paris CDG departure days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
The top European destinations for travelers from PIT connecting through CDG include Rome, Amsterdam, Budapest, Berlin, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Munich, Frankfurt, Prague, Bombay/Mumbai, Istanbul and London.
Pittsburgh International Airport is equipped with both TSA Precheck lanes for passengers departing Pittsburgh and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Global Entry Kiosks for faster re-entry processing. These are two more reasons flying to/from PIT makes international travel even easier.
