            Green, OH:  Frontier Airlines' has a new home at Akron-Canton Airport. Beginning today, the carrier's new permanent home is gate #11 in the new south concourse. With the move, all scheduled big jet flights from CAK will depart from the new, spacious second-level gates.

"We chose to make Akron-Canton our home in the Northeast Ohio region because it was simply the most convenient, cost-effective and customer service oriented option for us," said Chris McLaughlin, Director of Station Operations for Frontier Airlines.  "Today's move into the new terminal at Akron-Canton Airport gives our passengers one more reason to continue to use this airport and to continue to fly Frontier to Denver and the West.  We greatly appreciate the Airport's efforts to make their facility world-class and we look forward to many more years of serving our passengers from Akron-Canton."

 "We are so pleased to see that big, beautiful Airbus jet pull up to our new concourse," said airport director Fred Krum. "Frontier passengers are sure to enjoy the extra elbow room and great view of the airfield."

To celebrate the move, Frontier Airlines customers will enjoy complimentary breakfast treats in the morning and cookies in the afternoon. In addition to the extra space and breathtaking views, the new concourse features free Wi-Fi internet access, multiple power sources, and spacious and clean restrooms.
