AKRON-CANTON AIRPORT ACHIEVES FOURTH CONSECUTIVE ANNUAL PASSENGER RECORD





Green, OH: 2005 was another for the record books at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). Nearly 1.45 million passengers traveled to/ from the airport compared to 1.35 million the year before, a 5.6 percent increase. New flights offered by AirTran Airways and Frontier Airlines fueled the passenger growth at CAK. According to US Department of Transportation statistics, Akron-Canton was the second fastest growing airport in the nation from 2001-2004, increasing capacity (as measured by increased seats) by more than 100 percent. That growth is largely attributable to the expansion of low fare flights offered by industry juggernaut AirTran Airways at CAK.

"It was another great year at Akron-Canton Airport," said director Fred Krum. "More northeastern Ohio travelers have discovered our great airline service, low fares, shorter lines and a better overall airport experience. We aren't resting on our laurels though; Akron-Canton is committed to adding new amenities in 2006 that will keep passengers coming back."

During 2005 Frontier Airlines commenced affordably priced, nonstop service to Denver aboard big, comfy Airbus jets with satellite TV in every seatback, with excellent single concourse connections to the west. Additionally, AirTran Airways added flights to Las Vegas aboard their brand new Boeing 737 aircraft and announced seasonal service to Ft. Myers, Florida (which commenced January 12, 2006).

In 2006 the airport will dedicate the new gate concourse, add new food service options and will launch a new website. The airport is currently in the final phase of the $60 million, five-year STAR expansion project. The first two phases included longer runways, a new baggage claim wing and additional car parking. Additional airport information is available at www.akroncantonairport.com. Akron-Canton Airport, a better way to go.
