Earlier this spring, Southwest Airlines announced some significant cuts in flying from CAK. This kind of news is never pleasant but as those of us who have worked in the aviation biz for a while know all too well, cuts happen. Sometimes, even successful flights and popular routes are cut too. I’ll admit that those cuts hurt the most. I remember when Fred Krum, long-time CAK director, told me that our airport can get caught up in big sea changes and often those changes are...

Wait for it… wait for it… now! Orange construction barrels and fencing are popping up everywhere in Northeast Ohio as we embark on CONSTRUCTION 2015. Yes, it is an annual rite of passage in this part of the country; and you can count on it just like you can count on spring daffodils and birdsong (except those things are pretty nice).

We are off to a wonderful start in 2015. CAK is now 100% Southwest® after having fully integrated all former AirTran flights late last year. Plus, Allegiant will begin nonstop service to three awesome vacation destinations in May/ June- Savannah/ Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach and St. Pete/ Clearwater (Tampa area).
Now, CAK offers nonstop flights on two of the premier low cost carriers in the US! Both airlines are extremely successful with long track records of profitability, reliability and service....

To celebrate our new Southwest service, we are sending two people to Washington D.C. for a day. All you have to do is tell us what you’d like to Washington D. See to enter to win. We love having...

I am getting excited about this year’s World Routes Forum in Chicago! Just as the name implies, World Routes brings together airlines and airports from across the globe. Yep, you read that right, the entire globe.
It is part trade show, part networking, part learning and just mostly awesome. For the second year, World Routes is in the US. Last year in Las Vegas, I met airport representatives from small airports in China (with only 10 million passengers!) and throughout the...
