Delta Adds New Nonstop Service to Raleigh-Durham from Pittsburgh International Airport
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.

According to workinthetriangle.com, key industries in Raleigh include technology, life sciences and clean tech (renewable energy).
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.
Beginning June 8, Delta will offer the following daily schedule between Raleigh-Durham and Pittsburgh:
RDU at 8:10 a.m. PIT at 9:32 a.m.
PIT at 8:38 a.m. RDU at 10 a.m.
The service will be on 76-seat CRJ-900 regional jets operated by Delta Connection carrier Endeavor Air in an all aisle-and-window seating configuration with room for 12 customers in First Class, 20 in Delta Comfort+ and 44 in the main cabin.
