Pittsburgh International Airport

The Allegheny County Airport Authority has always been dedicated to the health, safety and security of its passengers and staff.

The Allegheny County Airport Authority has launched an authority-wide initiative titled “PIT Safe Travels.” The initiative, in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, boosts health and safety measures already in place throughout the facilities, and will help increase confidence in air travel through enhanced protocols that outline best practices for reducing the spread of germs.

The program includes:

  • Mandating facial coverings while on airport property
  • Practicing social distancing through guided markers in high-traffic areas
  • Utilizing protective shields in high traffic areas
  • Enhancing cleaning and disinfection
  • Implementing new touchless transaction technology

The program also will apply to the Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin.

PIT also teamed up with Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Robotics to deploy a pair of autonomous floor scrubbers – essentially self-driving robots that clean floors in an ultra-efficient manner – becoming the first U.S. airport to deploy ultraviolet cleaning by robots.
