Pittsburgh International Airport is seeking multilingual volunteer ambassadors to greet arriving international passengers, host visitors in the military lounge and assist customers at baggage claim.

Volunteers will welcome international passengers from Reykjavik, Iceland; Frankfurt, Germany; Toronto, Canada; the Caribbean; China and more.

“We already have a wonderful and dedicated group of about 75 volunteer airport ambassadors,” says Allegheny Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis. “We are looking to grow our numbers as we expect to have hundreds of new international passengers coming through the terminal this summer. We want our terminal to reflect the friendliness and hospitality that the Pittsburgh region is known for.”


High school and university students studying Spanish, French, German or other languages are encouraged to respond. Volunteers must pass a background check and be at least 18 years old. They will receive an orientation and customer service training. Flexible hours are available.

Volunteer ambassadors will:

  • Greet arriving passengers
  • Help passengers throughout the international arrivals area and terminal
  • Staff the military lounge and baggage claim information desk
  • ​Assist with special events, including flight announcements and inaugural flights
  • Escort passengers with special needs and other VIPs
