Delta is giving Pittsburgh travelers additional options with new daily nonstop service to Raleigh-Durham International Airport beginning June 8, 2019.
The new flights complement daily flights offered on American to a key business destination for Pittsburgh.
Named as one of the best places for attracting families as well as for doing business, officials said Raleigh, Wake County, and the Triangle area has a lot in common with the Pittsburgh region.

The cities that form the triangle – Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill – also boast professional, minor league and university sports, museums and award-winning restaurants to keep business travelers with downtime entertained.
Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning, said the flights strengthen Delta’s presence as the No. 1 global carrier from the Research Triangle area.
