I can hardly believe that it has been eight years since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon; arguably the worst calamity ever wrought upon thousands of innocent Americans.
I remember the American Airlines' pilots sitting in Fred's office, the hundreds of stranded travelers in our conference rooms, and the sad yet steadfast media trying to report on the tragedy.
I also fondly remember the outpouring of support from friends and neighbors who offered help to stranded passengers here at

We had another celebration at CAK today (press release). Now, you may think we are crazy, but when cool things happen…or in this case, cool trucks come, it is cause for celebration.

More than 50 VIPs, media cameras, and CAK employees were there to welcome Jack, Paul Tate (Canton native and former Frontier Airlines CFO)...

Times are tough out there. You know what I mean, the economy, global warming, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the list goes on and on. Well, there is a ray of light shining on our airport and our region. AirTran Airways posted a $78.9 million profit for the second quarter despite lagging demand and lower air fares.
Why is that good for Akron-Canton Airport and region? AirTran is our largest carrier, serving seven nonstop destinations- Atlanta, New York, Boston, Orlando,...
