Latest data just out has the airport ranked as the 45th busiest airport (out of the 50 largest airports that is). So we are pushing down to edge of the list. Remember Pittsburgh is the 22nd largest metro. See the full Pittsburgh profile from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics with lots of stats. I didn't realize Atlanta was a bigger destination than Philadelphia for folks departing Pittsburgh. By segment I presume and not ultimate destination? But to rank so far below our population rank would say that our location quotient for air service is quite low.
