AIRTRAN AIRWAYS BEGINS DAILY FLIGHTS TO TAMPA

FROM AKRON-CANTON AIRPORT





Green, OH: Are you ready to go "gulfing"? If so, grab your clubs and head to Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) because AirTran Airways is now offering nonstop flights to Tampa (TPA) everyday of the week. The new daily flight to Tampa (like all AirTran Flights from CAK) is aboard full-size, brand-new, Boeing 717 jets configured with 117 seats. The carrier began once-weekly service to Tampa last November.



 



"We are responding to overwhelming demand for our Saturday only nonstop Tampa flights," said John Kirby, AirTran Airways director of network planning. "We are pleased to bring this enhanced service to our valued and loyal Northeast Ohio customers."



 



"This is a great time of year to offer an escape route to sunny Tampa from Northeast Ohio," said airport director Fred Krum. With AirTran Airways' everyday low fares, folks can actually fly to Tampa and afford to take in a round of golf too."



 



Daily service effective February 11, 2004:



Akron-Canton to Tampa Nonstop Service



Flight Departs Arrives



927 7:25 p.m. 9:45 p.m.

Seats are now available for purchase. For fares and availability visit www.airtran.com or call your travel agent. As with all AirTran Airways flights, all seats are assigned and a round trip ticket purchase is never required. In addition to the new Tampa route, AirTran also offers nonstop daily flights to Atlanta, New York and Orlando from CAK.  The Boyd Group of Evergreen, Colorado recently ranked Akron-Canton as the third fastest growing airport in the country (2000-2008). To accommodate the additional passengers, CAK is currently in phase- three of the $60 million,



five-year STAR expansion project which includes longer runways, an expanded terminal (including a new second-level loading concourse and a food court with national brands) and a new interchange south of the airport at Shuffel Road.  Additional airport information is available at www.akroncantonairport.com. Akron-Canton Airport, a better way to go.

No, thanks. I don't like to save money on airfare.
