According to the Allegheny County Airport Authority, Southwest has 18 non-stop destinations — the most of any airline — from Pittsburgh, and its customers make up about 30 percent of all passengers.

“This is Southwest’s first scheduled international route from Pittsburgh and an indication of their ongoing success in this region,” said Christina Cassotis, the authority’s CEO.
