PITTSBURGH, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AIRMALL® USA, the leading airport concessions developer in North America and operator of the AIRMALL at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), is tipping its cap to Pittsburgh's reputation as the City of Champions with the recent opening of Burgh Sportz Bar on Concourse D (530 sq. ft.).  The Pittsburgh-themed sports bar and restaurant showcases the storied history of the city's professional hockey, football and baseball teams featuring a wide array of sports memorabilia in a casual dining atmosphere.  Passengers can select from sandwiches, salads, soups, entrees and a wide variety of beers.

"Pittsburghers are sports fanatics, and throughout the city's history, our teams have brought great pride to this region.  Burgh Sportz Bar not only brings a taste of Pittsburgh to the airport, but it highlights our international reputation as the City of Champions," said Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for AIRMALL Pittsburgh.  "Plus, passengers can experience the excitement of sports in our region and a great meal at 'Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed,' which is an AIRMALL promise."

Air Ventures, LLC, an Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) company and operator of Burgh Sportz Bar, will open a second location at the AIRMALL on Concourse B (1,300 sq. ft.) later this summer.  At this location, travelers will be able to purchase signature souvenir glasses honoring Pittsburgh's championship franchises.    

Founded in 1992, the AIRMALL at PIT pioneered the developer model for airport concessions across the United States by introducing "Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed."  Passengers pay no more for goods and services at the AIRMALL than they would pay at a comparable nearby store or restaurant. 

For the past several years, the AIRMALL at PIT took first place among U.S. airports in the food, shops and amenities category in Conde Nast Traveler's Annual Business Travel Awards.
