Pittsburgh Heralded as Economic Powerhouse in Southwest Airlines In-Flight Magazine

Pittsburgh's blossoming identity as an innovation-driven economic powerhouse gets a thorough review in the latest issue of Southwest Airlines' in-flight magazine.

"Take the values of the Midwest and a forward-thinking Eastern spark and you have Pittsburgh, a city that recently celebrated its 250th birthday," reads the article in Spirit magazine.

"But if the only things that spring to mind when it comes to this classic city are Super Bowl rings, the Stanley Cup, soot and a lot of steel, then one thing is certain: You clearly don’t know Pittsburgh."

The 16-page spread highlights Pittsburgh-area companies such as Westinghouse, Bayer, Medrad, GlaxoSmithKline, UPMC and American Eagle Outfitters, and focuses on key strengths in the region - energy, life sciences, education and robotics, to name a few.

The article also shines a spotlight on the region's livability, manageable size, low cost of living and many cultural attractions.
