It's official! CAK had a record year in 2008! 1.46 million peeps flew to/from CAK. Check out the presser here.
There are a handful of others that also set records- Burlington, VT, Portland, Maine, to name a couple- but what's really neat is that we didn't technically add new air service in 2008. We were blessed by some additional frequencies- 1 seasonal trip to DEN aboard Frontier and 2 additional flights (one Philly and one Charlotte) aboard US Airways....

What really impressed her was our breast feeding station. Now... I should reveal that I strongly believe that a mom should be able to feed her child any place any time. It is the most natural thing to do really.
I had babies, pumps, trouble finding outlets, and it made the whole thing a bit more difficult. That's why we installed the breast feeding stations. I...

The US DOT awarded US Airways slots to fly CAK-DCA. I need to pinch myself, I am so excited! Rick came into our marketing/ communications planning meeting yesterday afternoon to tell me. I was already feeling good…cuz of all the good ideas my staff was bringing to my attention…but I literally jumped up and down when he delivered the big news.
Why is this a big deal you might ask? Well, because we have been trying to get to DC for more than...
