The county airport authority wants West Mifflin’s Allegheny County Airport to be a destination — but not for commuter flights.
That sums up a meeting borough officials had Monday with new authority CEO Christina Cassotis that came 24 hours before a $1.5 million federal grant was announced for taxiway rehabilitation there.
“It was a positive meeting,” borough Manager Brian Kamauf said. “We discussed the history of the airport.”
It dates back to Pittsburgh and McKeesport’s window to the world between 1931 and 1952, when commercial service moved from West Mifflin to what then was Greater Pittsburgh Airport, now Pittsburgh International.
