The Pittsburgh Airport will now be allowing public access. This will give people the opportunity to walk their friends and family to the airport gates without having to buy tickets to do so. The “myPITpass” program will give non-fliers access to the Airside Terminal come September 5.
County Executive Rich Fitzgerald released a statement explaining their intentions behind the idea.
“For years, we’ve heard from travelers and non-travelers alike who want the opportunity to shop the stores at the airport. Thanks to the constant work of Christina Cassotis and her team at the airport, as well as the support of Congressman Tim Murphy, we’re finally able to make that a reality with the myPITpass Program.”
The people using the program will be screened in the same way that those are who are actually boarding the planes.
