There is some great history between the city of Pittsburgh and Sarasota / Bradenton. One of the biggest links is the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training and their facility in Bradenton.
Big News! Starting February 23rd, 2018 Elite Airways will be offering non-stop flights between SRQ Airport and Pittsburgh International Airport. Perfect timing as the Pittsburgh Pirates first spring training game is February 24th at LECOM Park.
These flights are a “win win” for both cities and their respective airports. Lots of folks from the Pittsburgh area come down for spring training and vacation here. For starters, the flights will operate on Monday and Fridays but there is already talk that the flights will expand to year-round service.
