Pittsburgh International (PIT) has been trying to restore non-stop service to Europe for years, and thanks to a new contract with Delta Airlines, it has.
Business travelers in the region will see the most benefit, says JoAnn Jenny, director of communications for the Allegheny County Airport Authority. They now will have non-stop service to Charles de Gaulle (CDG) in Paris, France, that includes connections to more than 90 destinations provided by Air France.
“It was a team effort to achieve this goal,” Jenny says. “The Regional Air Service Partnership worked together to make a terrific case to bring this service to Pittsburgh. The group is made up of Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, The Allegheny Conference and the Allegheny County Airport Authority.”
The first phase of Delta’s joint venture with Air France was implemented in April, coinciding with an Open Skies agreement that liberalized air transport between the European Union and the United States.
The flight will be offered daily, except for Tuesdays and Fridays, and will depart from PIT’s international concourse. Service begins June 3.
