PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT PASSENGER INFORMATION FOR THIS WEEKEND
PITTSBURGH (June 11, 2007) – The Wings Over Pittsburgh Air Show will be held this weekend at Pittsburgh International Airport. If you are flying from Pittsburgh International Airport, the Air Show’s Thunderbird performance should not interfere with your departure or arrival time. There is a traffic advisory that you should be aware of if you are driving to the airport for a flight or to drop off/pick up someone.
“Scheduling of air acrobatics has been structured so as to minimize any impact on normal commercial flight operations. The Allegheny County Airport Authority, the airlines, the FAA Air Traffic Control Tower and the 911th Airlift Wing have been working closely for many months to ensure that the show is action-packed with great performances while scheduled airline traffic operates smoothly and safely,” stated Kent G. George, Executive Director, Allegheny County Airport Authority.
With more than 590 flight operations daily, Pittsburgh International Airport is an epicenter of air transportation.
It requires a massive effort and excellent coordination to keep a busy international airport open while the Wings Over Pittsburgh Air Show 2007, hosted by the 911th Airlift Wing Air Force Reserve Base, takes place this weekend.
The Airport Authority will have an impressive display of equipment for fire fighting, snow removal and emergency command and control. The public will get to see all the effort and personnel that helps to keep the airport among the best in the world in terms of safety and on-time flights.
