FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AIRPORT HISTORY, AKRON-CANTON WELCOMES

ONE MILLIONTH PASSENGER






Green, OH: On AirTran Airways flight 202 arriving from New York.s LaGuardia airport, is the one millionth passenger to pass through the airport during 2003. The aircraft arrives at 11:38



a.m. at gate 7.



 



"Thanks to the million passengers that made this day possible," said airport director



Fred Krum. "We work for you. This is a great opportunity to renew our team.s commitment to



serving you all, providing a safe and excellent facility. Your great experience is our triumph."



 



The airport has been steadily adding passengers since 1996 when AirTran Airways began



service here. Since their humble start with one daily flight to Orlando, the airline has since added Atlanta, New York and Tampa to its nonstop offerings from Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). AirTran's growth prompted other airlines to add capacity, positioning the airport as one of the fastest growing in the nation. The global networks offered by Delta Connection, US Airways Express, Northwest Airlink, and United Express, also provide valuable airline service and connectivity to the world from CAK.



 



In a recent ranking published by the Boyd Group of Evergreen Colorado, between 2000-



2008, CAK was named the third fastest growing airport in the country with a 55% increase in



passengers expected.



 



"Akron-Canton is strategically positioned to benefit from the growth of low



cost carriers," remarks Michael Boyd. "Good fares coupled with a great passenger experience will keep people coming well into the future," he added.



 



The airport authority, its tenants and special guest Dr. Evil (of Austin Powers fame) will help celebrate this historic event. The one millionth passenger will receive a variety of generously



donated gifts to commemorate the day including:



 



DONATIONS:




4 business class flights aboard AirTran Airways



4 AirTran Airways business class upgrades



$100 gift certificate for a future Northwest Airlines flight



1- year free long term parking pass and Airport logo gear



12- 10% off coupons on United Airlines and other United Airlines gifts



Delta Airlines logo sweater

A large box of Harry London gourmet chocolates



1 week free Enterprise car rental



A cherry wood Pro Football Hall of Fame box donated by the Canton Regional Chamber



Complimentary SOS Limousine ride



$20 Zona Limousine gift certificate



5 Subway Sub sandwiches and fresh baked cookies compliments of MSE Branded Food Systems



356th Fighter Group Sunday Brunch for two



Avis Rental Car travel accessories



Budget Rental Car golf pullover



Hertz Rental Car Gold Club upgrade card

More than 1.1 million total passengers are expected to fly CAK in 2003. The airport is



currently in the third phase of the $60 million, five-year STAR expansion project, which will focus on the building of a new $24 million gate concourse and a new Shuffel Road interchange. The first two phases included longer runways, a new baggage claim wing and food court with national brands. Additional airport information is available at www.akroncantonairport.com.
