New Landside Terminal To Be Built At Pittsburgh International Airport

New Landside Terminal To Be Built At Pittsburgh International Airport”

Airport officials made it clear that while the project is a huge endeavor for the airport, it won't "have a major impact on current operations and passengers will not experience major changes or disruptions during the project".

Pittsburgh International Airport officials announced on Tuesday that they will be building a new landside terminal.

The improvements include a new building for ticketing, security and baggage. "I know we sometimes refer to it as the new airport, but it's 25 years ago", County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said.

"It's a win-win situation for everybody". That number is a dozen more gates than are now being used at the airport. The Authority plans to spend $1.1 billion to reshape the facility by creating a new landside terminal, expand the security checkpoint, and streamline the baggage retrieval process. "This is the kind of forward thinking you're going to see as we unveil this big-picture project that is emblematic of where Pittsburgh is already today".

"We are a vibrant, growing, tech-focused economy, and that is what needs to be reflected directly by the airport", ACAA CEO Christina Cassotis said.

"I can not begin to tell you how awesome this is", said state Rep. Mark Mustio, who took a break from legislative meetings on budget funding in Harrisburg to attend the announcement. The groundbreaking is set for 2019, with completion expected in 2023.

That's because the plans call for the elimination of a "costly" train that shuttles passengers between the landside and airside terminals, as well as the "implementation of modern technology" throughout the entire airport.

The authority estimates the project "will create 10,000 direct and indirect jobs and produce $1.66 billion in economic activity, ' while generating "more than $28 Million in state and local income taxes".
