Every month I wait, with a knot in my tummy, for the airlines to report their passenger boardings to us. The figures come in one-by-one for about a week. Sometimes, they are up sometimes they are down. This month, thankfully, more were up than we were down. Our margin of increase in May was very slim, just 177 more passengers than last year, but in this economy up is up! Read the press release.
At the AAAE National Conference in Philadelphia earlier this week,...

I just participated in the mother of all disaster drills at CAK. More than 400 emergency response personnel and volunteers gathered at CAK last Wednesday. Our goal: to test our coordinated effort to effectively and efficiently respond to a big disaster.
Todd Laps, our manager of all things safety and security, did an excellent job of pulling together 50 agencies from throughout the greater Akron/ Canton area to respond to a mock emergency. He worked closely with Summit and Stark county

Representative John Boccieri and Chris and Jessica from his staff just visited with Rick and me here at the airport. It was a wonderful visit!
Congressman Boccieri is a great listener; that was the thing that most struck me during our visit. He knows a lot about airports too. It helps that he is an Air Force pilot and really digs aviation. He won extra CAK brownie points for using our new US Airways DC flight.
Rick and I got the...
