With the decline of US Airways’ hub at Pittsburgh, the city has been looking for a regional partner to boost passenger numbers and improve service options to those who fly through Pittsburgh. Enter Sun Air Express (also known as Sun Air International); the self-proclaimed “ultra-regional carrier” has announced plans to establish a focus city at Pittsburgh International Airport and operate flights to five cities: Bradford (PA), Altoona (PA), Lancaster (PA), Franklin (PA), and Jamestown (NY). The carrier also has flights from Washington-Dulles to Lancaster (PA) and Hagerstown (MD). The five destinations will be served by Sun Air’s fleet of 8 nine seat Piper Navajo aircraft. The airline plans to have a total of 40 -50 arrivals and departures from Pittsburgh per week.
