CAK Airport + Tenants=Jobs

Posted on 07/16/2010 by Kristie VanAuken

So, the other day I was at a meeting with a local school administrator and the marketing manager of a large employer in our hometown city, Green, Ohio. They were chatting about which one of them- the school system or the large service provider- was the largest employer in Green. Immediately (those of you who know me know that I simply can't keep quiet if I know that an important fact is missing from the conversation), I said "wait a second, the airport is the largest employer in Green." Needless to say, they were very surprised.The school administrator actually wanted to argue that the airport wasn't all in Green (we all pay a 2% income tax, so I know that we are indeed located in Green).

1,034 people are employed by the Akron-Canton Airport in aviation related fields (including airlines, TSA, FAA, Authority employees, car rental agencies, dining and retail services, parking lot, fix based operators, maintenance base, and corporate aviation hangers).That's a big number. It is especially important now as the U.S. is working hard to pull out of one of the worst recessions of all time. We generate $84 million in payroll and $6.6 million in taxes too. Our overall economic impact is just short of $400 million.

Airports are powerful economic generators and CAK is no exception.It is really at the heart of all we do. Our core business, transporting people and things to destinations throughout the world, generates lots of economic activity. As we continue to grow, adding new destinations and services, our economic contributions- jobs, income and taxes- also grow. 

So, here's to giving back, in a big way, to Green, Ohio, and beyond.
