October cargo operations at Pittsburgh International Airport reach lowest levels since 2017

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Air cargo operations at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) continue to post a decline month-to-month as the global headwinds often cited by the Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA), the managing organization of PIT, remain.

During the month of October, PIT had 17.1 million pounds of cargo travel across its runways, down 28% from the 23.9 million pounds it saw during the same month last year. In fact, PIT’s cargo operations by weight last month are the smallest for any October since 2017, which is when PIT posted 15.8 million pounds worth of cargo operations.

The decline follows a 26% decrease in cargo operations at PIT year-over-year during the month of September while August and July posted double-digit percentage declines as well.
