Airlines cutting Pittsburgh routes in response to coronavirus

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Flights from Pittsburgh International Airport are being cut in response to the unprecedented scale of travel restrictions and drops in demand due to COVID-19, including the ending of American Airlines’ flights to Phoenix and United Airlines is reducing its flights in Pittsburgh 13 percent.

The airport said it has received word — and word is still coming in — about a number of reductions from airlines in its service to Pittsburgh. It’s likely to continue changing as the depth of the COVID-19 crisis continues to sweep through the travel industry, and people are being urged by governments all over the world to not only stop all nonessential travel but also to stay in their homes.
