Default Which airport for University of Pittsburgh?

It's college tour time for my step-daughter. Is KPIT the best airport to
land at for University of Pittsburgh?

The thing I've noticed, particularly about Usenet, that while as a
welcome break from work it is refreshing and interesting, when you've
got bugger all else to do it kinda loses its appeal. -- C Speed

It's probably a toss up between KAGC and KPIT these days. I'd say go with
KAGC for convenience, but their prices may be very comparable to KPIT. Also,
the selection of rental cars is probably much better at KPIT. If you find
yourself going back, try 'em both!

I would presume that KAGC would be better from both landing fee and
proximity points of view. OTOH, I've never flown into Pgh. myself, only
with my father as a kid, or commercial. I did grow up there, however (Mt
Lebanon, class of '62).

No landing fee at AGC, I think $17 plus FBO ramp at PIT. You can park
free in front of the AGC terminal and get a cab to town (or even bus if
you want that)if you don't need FBO services (Corporate Jets) .

KAGC is closer and has no landing fee. KPIT is further, has a $7.50 or
landing fee and the FBO charges a "handling fee" (? $25) as well.
