Pittsburgh Airport Terminal

There are two terminals - Landside Terminal and Airside Terminal. The Airside Terminal consists of four concourses (A, B, C, and D). As you can see on the Pittsburgh International Airport map, they radiate from an AirMall like spokes on a wheel. A people mover connects the center concourse to the Landside Terminal, a multi-story structure containing baggage claim and ticketing offices.

After entering and passing through security, you will reach the Landside Terminal. To reach a gate in the Airside Terminal, you must ride the People Mover, also known as the indoor tram. When not crowded, the ride lasts less than a minute, and children enjoy it.

Of the four concourses, A and B are the longest and feature the greatest number of gates.

Each concourse offers a variety of passenger services and amenities, including restaurants, gift shops, bookstores, clothing, and beauty shops. There are also ATMs, a Travelex Business Center, airline lounges, a chapel, and information desks. The terminal area of PIT is wheelchair-accessible and equipped with many amenities for the convenience of disabled passengers.

How to get around Pittsburgh Airport

Both the Landside and Airslide terminals are connected to each other by an underground people mover making it easy for passenger to travel between terminals.
