Green, OH: Merci! Danke! Shukran! Arigato! Toda! Grazie! Spasibo! Gracias! It doesn’t really matter how you say thanks, the Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) couldn’t feel more grateful towards the 154,772 Customers who traveled to/from CAK during the month of July. This monthly record also marks the best month in the airport’s 64-year history, set just last month (June 2011).Compared to July 2010, the airport hosted nearly 8,000 more passengers this year, a 5.4 percent increase.

We will continue to work with our airline partners to offer exceptional service to the destinations travelers in Northeast Ohio want most and we are committed to enhancing our facilities both inside and out, in keeping with our CAK 2018 capital improvement plan. The future is truly bright at CAK.”
