COVID-19 Travel Restrictions 

Pittsburgh International Airport is not checking arriving or departing passengers for COVID-19 test results. Travelers should refer to the state health department for additional information regarding the order or contact your airline.

Federal Mask Mandate

Federal law requires all passengers, staff and visitors to wear masks in the terminal, on airport property and on aircraft. Failure to comply may result in removal, denial of entry and other penalties.

Safety and Security

Safety and security are the top priorities at Pittsburgh International Airport. Airport officials have developed an extensive set of contingency plans to prepare for the Coronavirus impact to the traveling public. The airline and airport industry have faced the threat of communicable disease before and have developed, trained and executed emergency plans and drills.


The new safe and healthy travel protocols build on steps PIT began taking when public health officials first announced the Coronavirus outbreak. Airport officials continue to be in contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Allegheny County Health Department and airlines on a daily basis. Safe Travels 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.
