The 727-200 "Clipper Portsmouth", piloted by Tim Mellon, will be at gate C-52, along with Pan Am president Dave Fink. Fink will talk about Pan Am's recent successes of entering under-used airports, Pan Am's Clipper Class, and about the new service from PIT.

Piloted by Tim Mellon? That will go over great with the Pittsburghers. Is he related to the famous Mellon Family of Pittsburgh, I wonder.

However, as for going head to head with a much much larger airline in US Airways at their largest hub, I can't side with the underdog at all. They will have a hard time there.

The service will run non-stop to Sanford, Fl (Orlando). PanAm is also adding service from Sanford to Atlanta.

As it is my old namesake airline I have to say GO PAN AM!!!!

How I love the blue meatball on the tail...

So many fond memories of the world's greatest airline! (and the world's most experienced airline...) It was one of the saddest days in the airline business when they ceased operations on Dec 3rd, 1991


My opinion only!

How do you know this? I searched the Pan Am web site and there is no reference to them expanding into PIT.

I am very excited for this to happen. I just need to know if this will happen.

Thank you,

Neil Harrison

Pilot1113-
I can almost positively guarantee you Pan Am will start service to Pittsburgh and Atlanta to Orlando/Sanford by this summer. It is true

I'm really excited for this to come about! I'm glad that Pam Am is expanding!!! Hopefully Pan Am III will do better than the first two and reclaim the former glory of the first one.

I finally did see the press release... It should be interesting to see how the other airlines, namely US Air reacts to having a new entrant in Pittsburgh.

The so-called press release is as follows:

Company Press Release
Pan American Airways Introduces Clipper Service To Pittsburgh
Airline Officials to Hold News Conference at Pittsburgh International Airport to Discuss New Service and Introduce Airline
PORTSMOUTH, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 17, 2000--Officials of Pan American Airways will conduct a news conference and aircraft tour on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2000 at 2:00 p.m. at Gate No. 52 at Concourse C at Pittsburgh International Airport.

The arriving Boeing 727-200 aircraft ferrying Pan Am officials will be the ``Clipper Portsmouth'' piloted by Pan Am chairman, Capt. Tim Mellon.

Pan Am Chairman Till Mellon and President David Fink will use the news conference to introduce Pan Am to regional news media representatives and discuss Pan Am's plans for service in 2000. In addition, the company will discuss its recent successes in the use of under-utilized airports, the development of a new on-line reservation system, and the recent FAA safety and maintenance recognition. At the news event, Pan Am will be joined by Airport Director Kent George.

As part of the introduction of the airline to the Pittsburgh market, company officials will have one of its newly reconfigured 727-200 Clipper Class aircraft open for viewing. These aircraft have been re-designed to provide additional legroom and greater passenger comfort.

I'd really like to see Pan Am gain some of their lost ground back, and this looks like a huge step. Weird network, though. I'd love to see that blue & white here in Rochester!
