CAK Connections

In this issue: The scoop on Southwest/AirTran code-sharing and  Sequestration, new CAK Cafe opens, US Airways adds flight and Community Open House.

Rick McQueen

I've been asked lots of questions recently about how sequestration could affect us at CAK. There are a couple of important federal agencies that offer essential services at our airport, so I wanted to make sure you are up to date on this issue.

At this point, despite the lists out there that identify CAK for late night closure, we have no official notification that hours at our FAA Air Traffic Control Tower will be affected. Through the summer, we expect to offer 24-hour air traffic control, as we have for decades.

It is also our understanding that our partners at the TSA will have adequate staff to safely and efficiently operate our security checkpoint and baggage inspection.

What does this mean to you? It means that you can book your flights with confidence that your airport is, as always, going to offer a relaxing and enjoyable experience from your car to your airplane.

We will continue to work with our partners at the FAA and TSA on this matter. Please be assured we will update you if new guidance is issued.


Book Southwest / AirTran Together
Starting April 14, your Southwest Airlines and AirTran flights can be booked on the same itinerary. Book your flight at and 2 bags fly free (restrictions apply)!  Want to know more? Read Sr. VP's Kristie VanAuken's blog that breaks down code-sharing.


CAK Marketplace Cafe opens
CAK's newest eatery, Marketplace Cafe, provides a fresh new option for CAK travelers. Look for it near Delta and US Airways (gates 3-7). Gobble up sandwiches, salads, smoothies, breakfast, organic and gluten-free foods. Yum!


US Airways adds flight to Charlotte
Yup, US Airways is growing again at CAK! In addition to US Airways' seven daily non-stops to Charlotte, US also flies nonstop to Washington, D.C. (Reagan) and Philadelphia.  Book your flights to these great destinations and beyond at US


See our Firehouse/ Operations building
We can't wait to move into our new aircraft operations center and firefighting facility off of Mt. Pleasant Rd. Our award-winning operations/ field maintenance departments will get fresh new digs and have their big shiny (OK, yes and functional) trucks nearby- improving airfield efficiency.  Wanna have a peek at the new building and our shiny trucks? Join us in mid-May for a public open house. Bring the kids too. Date announced soon. CAK, better by design.
