On April 4, Via started direct flights to Birmingham, Ala. and in the coming months it was to add flights to Memphis, Tenn., and Hartford, Conn. — mid-sized markets that hadn’t been served in Pittsburgh, according to Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis.
Via, based in Maitland, Fla., is a privately held company with 150 employees and 10 aircraft. It has a two-decade history and operates in 19 cities across the country. About 10 employees were based at the Pittsburgh airport.
Via will retain one route, from Orlando Sanford International to Jackson, Miss. plus charter flights throughout the US.
