CAK Connections

In this issue: What you need to know about Southwest Airlines at CAK, new service to Chicago Midway and Denver on AirTran Airways, bigger screening checkpoint opens and CAK has record-breaking year.

2011 was nothing short of remarkable. We set our twelfth annual passenger record of the past 15 years, got word that Southwest is not only staying at CAK but actually growing, and we completed our security checkpoint renovation. We did it all while keeping our airport costs low for our airline partners and added a bit to the CAK future improvement fund.
Of course, none of this is possible without the steadfast support of our Customers. Thanks for believing in us and for choosing to fly CAK.
2012 promises to be another strong year, with your support. Let's keep breaking records and preserving low fares in Northeast Ohio.



Southwest Airlines

Southwest lands at CAK
Southwest Airlines is keeping Akron-Canton Airport on their route map! That's great news, because we'd be short on low fares without 'em.
What does this mean for you?
  1. Southwest purchased AirTran Airways in 2010. Until integration is achieved, AirTran will operate as a subsidiary of Southwest Airlines.
  2. Continue to book your flights at AirTran will continue to fly out of CAK throughout 2012.
  3. Continue to enjoy low fares and a relaxing experience at CAK and we’ll keep you updated along the way. We hope to see the first Southwest jet land at CAK in 2013!



New flights to Chicago Midway on AirTran
Who likes low fares from CAK to Chicago Midway? In August 2012, you’ll be getting just that! AirTran Airways (a subsidiary of Southwest Airlines) will be flying nonstop to Chicago Midway from CAK starting August 12, 2012. Tickets are on sale now at Bonus: nonstop service to Denver starts from CAK on June 2, 2012 on AirTran.


Screening Checkpoint

Screening Checkpoint means More Space for You
Our spacious new TSA checkpoint is complete and ready to make your trip through CAK even easier. We officially cut the ribbon a few weeks ago and opened the checkpoint, which features the latest security technology and more elbow room for you.  The new checkpoint is even closer to the ticket counters after you check-in for your flight. That’s right. Your walk to your gate just got even faster.


Best Year Ever

Thanks to you, CAK had its best year ever!
Our final numbers are in for 2011 and it was the best year in Akron-Canton Airport history. A total of 1,664,397 customers traveled to and from CAK in 2011 beating the old record set in 2010 by more than 101,366 people – a 6.5 percent increase. We broke passenger records ten out of 12 months in 2011. A special thanks to you for flying in/out of CAK in 2011. You’re one in a 1.66 million!
