Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT)
Facilities and Services
(Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - PA, USA)
A good selection of facilities are housed within the terminals of Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), with restaurants, coffee shops, clothing stores and newsagents all available should you have time on your hands.
The Midfield Terminal is the main airport terminal and is divided into separate areas - Landside and Airside, being shaped rather like a large cross and centered around the Airmall. Passengers at Pittsburgh Airport can take advantage of the computerized Flight Desk kiosks, when you can actually check yourself in (participating airlines only) and then print out a boarding pass, before heading to the checkpoint for security. If you are traveling with bags that require checking, it will still be necessary to visit the relevant ticket counter.
