Pittsburgh International Airport Launches Aviation Newsroom, Website and E-Newsfeed BlueSkyPIT.com

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh International Airport has launched its own in-house news service to communicate the latest news and travel information from the facility that employs more than 6,000 and serves nearly 9 million passengers annually.
 
At www.BlueSkyPIT.com , readers will find behind-the-scenes features from inside the terminal, on the airfield and in the aviation community. Staff, many of whom are former journalists, along with freelance journalists, will detail stories behind the scenes of airport operations and show readers what thriving, innovative airports look like in action.
 
“This is naturally the next step in the airport’s evolution as a world-leader in aviation,” said CEO Christina Cassotis. “We want to communicate directly with travelers and the public, unfiltered.
 
“As the traditional media landscape continues to change, we want to be at the forefront of sharing the latest news and really taking people behind-the-scenes on why and how the airport has made so much progress during the past three years. This is about informing the public with real news stories like any other media outlet.”
 
Blue Sky Executive Editor Paul O’Rourke said there is excitement, emotion and evolution in aviation.
 
“It will be conveyed in the stories of passengers and in the dedication of employees and partners, who are committed to propelling our airports, our organization and our region forward,” he said.
 
Pittsburgh International is the latest organization to embrace the idea of taking its news distribution in-house. In recent years, more companies and organizations have launched their own news sites, particularly in markets where traditional media numbers have dwindled.
 
BlueSkyPIT.com’s goal is to break news, offer insider perspective and inform the public about the strategy behind airport decisions, becoming the most trusted news source in aviation. In addition to new content posted regularly on the homepage, Blue Sky will send a weekly email newsletter to subscribers.
Content will also be shared on Pittsburgh International Airport’s social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
