Getting around the airport


Pittsburgh International Airport is located 20 miles west of downtown Pittsburgh and consists of a Landside and an Airside Terminal connected by an underground people mover.

  • The Landside Terminal includes ticketing, security checkpoints, baggage claim, and ground transportation. After passing through security, passengers take a people mover to the Airside Terminal where departure gates are located.

  • The Airside Terminal consists of four concourses: A, B, C, and D. Immigration & Customs and International Arrivals are on the lower level, the AIRMALL (centre of concourses) and gates are the main level, while the Mezzanine level hosts the Admirals Club lounge and chapel.
  • Concourse C has 11 gates and serves international arrivals and departures. Customs and immigration is located on its lower level.
