AKRON-CANTON AIRPORT OFFERS FREE WI-FI SERVICE IN TERMINAL
Green, OH: Surfing the web at Akron-Canton (CAK) is easier than ever and won't cost you
a dime. That's right, zip, nada, nothing. The airport has offered Wi-Fi service for the past year, but recently dropped the $1.95 per hour charge.
"We want to be the airport of preference in the region and free Wi-Fi is one more CAK advantage," said airport director Fred Krum. "With just one simple click you can look at email, blog, or check out the Brown's score. Great amenities like this, plus low air fares and lots more nonstop flights, make Akron-Canton a better way to go."
Because the entire terminal is a hot spot, web surfers can relax in the lobby, at their gate,
in J.J's Sports Bar (or anywhere else in the terminal) and access the net. First Communications®, a local web and telecommunications provider headquartered in Akron recently upgraded the service and will extend it to the new gates opening next summer.
The free CAK Wi-Fi is available to more travelers than ever before. In 2005, single month
records were broken in June and July, and the airport is on track to post its highest annual
passenger traffic in history. The growth is attributed to new flights offered by industry leading, low cost carriers- AirTran Airways (Las Vegas and Ft. Myers) and Frontier Airlines (Denver).
The airport is currently in the third phase of the $60 million, five-year STAR expansion project, includinga $24 million gate concourse and a new Shuffel Road interchange. The first two phases included longer runways, a new baggage claim wing, additional car parking and a food court with national brands.
