About CAK 2018
CAK 2018 is our 10-year, $110 Million Capital Improvement Plan - the most ambitious capital improvement plan in our history.
The airport authority has unveiled CAK 2018 – the most ambitious capital improvement plan in Akron-Canton Airport's history. The 10-year, $110 million plan calls for 10 vital projects in the next 10 years. From a major runway extension to a new customs and border patrol facility to accommodate international flights, the projects will create new flight options for travelers in northeastern Ohio, the Cleveland+ region.
Watch the tour of our renovated food court and expanded TSA security checkpoint. This project is expected to be complete by Thanksgiving 2011.

10 Projects of CAK 2018
Akron-Canton Airport's 10 Year Capital Improvement Plan
Runway 5/23 Extension - Completed in November 2010
Runway 5/23 will be extended from 7,600 ft. to 8,200 ft. This means CAK passengers will be able to fly farther – non-stop to anywhere in the U.S. and throughout Mexico and Canada. The safety area at the north end of the runway will be upgraded and our Instrument Landing System will be relocated. Cost: $60 million
Expand Aircraft Parking and General Aviation Area- Future
This will give us enough space to park 2-3 more Boeing 737-800 aircraft and could serve as a future deicing pad. A new ramp also will be built for private pilots. Cost: $5 million
Replace Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Maintenance Facility (ARFF) - Active
A new 30,000 sq. ft. building will be built on a new site replacing our 30-year-old facility. It also will be an airfield management and weather center and house two fire trucks and other heavy equipment like snow plows and mowers. Cost: $5 million
New Customs and Border Patrol Facility - Active
The customs and border patrol facility is currently slated to replace our fire fighting facility (ARFF) because it is so close to customer parking lots. It will act as its own terminal for international arriving flights. It will house a customs check point and baggage claim area. International flights will depart from our main terminal building. Cost: $3.65 million
Expand Auto Parking Lots - Active
Up to 1,000 new spots will give the parking lot increased capacity by 50%. Cost: $2.5 million
Widen Entrance Road - Future
One more lane will be added to make dropping off or picking up passengers even easier. Storm water and sewer lines will be replaced beneath the road. Cost: $5 million
Expand Ticket Wing - Future
A new counter with three tickets position will be added as well an extra 150 ft. of check-in space. The expansion will also add more space for baggage make-up and TSA baggage checks. Cost: $2.5 million
Expand TSA Screening Area - Active
We will add 25 percent more space or up to 5,000 additional sq. ft. so we can accommodate an additional screening lane. That means that 33 percent more people could be screened per hour. The food court will be relocated to the other side of the main concourse to allow for the extra room. Cost: $3 million
Expand New Concourse - Future
Our new upper level concourse completed in 2006 will be extended by 300 ft. That provides for three more gates, a new business club, 300 more seats, a glass atrium and more restrooms. Cost: $18 million
Build new Port Green Industrial Park - Active
Partnering with the City of Green, we will apply for a grant from the State of Ohio's Job Ready Site Program to develop Port Green, a continuation of the already successful CAK International Business Park. The 213 acres will be developed into 10-12 business sites bringing up to 1,000 high paying jobs to northeast Ohio. Other potential regional economic impacts include $45 million in real property tax, $20 million in personal property tax and a $30 million annual payroll. Cost: $6 million
