The Akron-Canton Airport has prepared this Emergency Contingency Plan pursuant to §42301 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. Questions regarding this plan can be directed to Todd Laps at email@example.com. The Akron-Canton Airport is filing this plan with the Department of Transportation because (1) it is a commercial airport or (2) this airport may be used by an air carrier described in USC 42301(a)(1) for diversions.
This plan describes how, following excessive tarmac delays and to the extent practicable, the Akron-Canton Airport will:
The Akron-Canton Airport has facility constraints that limit our ability to accommodate diverted flights or maintain the airport’s safe operation and strongly encourages aircraft operators to contact the airport at 330-499-0431 for prior coordination of diverted flights, except in the case of a declared in-flight emergency. Specific facility constraints include the following: lack of international passenger processing facilities, limited numbers of aircraft parking positions, inability to accommodate park or service certain types of aircraft, and limited fueling capacity. During diversion events, the Akron-Canton Airport issues NOTAMs regarding its ability to accommodate diverted flights to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the airport and its ability to serve the civil aviation needs of the public during irregular operations events.

In the event of diversion or other irregular operations events, aircraft operators should contact Todd Laps, Manager of Operations & Public Safety at 330-499-0431 (cell: 330-353-1141) or email@example.com for assistance.
The Akron-Canton Airport does not own or operate any of the equipment needed to safely deplane passengers from air carrier aircraft and is, therefore, unable on its own to provide for the deplanement of passengers. Additionally, airport personnel are not trained to assist in the deplanement of passengers using equipment owned or operated by air carriers or contract service providers. We will provide a list of airlines, ground handlers, fixed base operators and others who may have the necessary equipment and personnel to safely deplane passengers to airlines as soon as practicable after receiving requests from such airlines experiencing excessive tarmac delays at the contact number listed above.
The gates at the Akron-Canton Airport are under exclusive lease to air carriers and are not controlled by the airport during those time periods when the tenant airline is using or scheduled to use the gates. We are unable to direct a tenant airline to accommodate another air carrier aircraft at its exclusively leased gate during those time periods when the gate is in use or scheduled to be in use. We will direct our tenant air carriers to make gates and other facilities available to an air carrier seeking to deplane at these exclusively-leased gates during those time periods the gates are not in use or not scheduled to be in use, to the maximum extent practicable.
The Akron-Canton Airport does not have international passenger processing facilities. We will coordinate with local CBP and law enforcement officials to identify suitable areas and procedures for establishing a temporary sterile area into which international passengers on diverted aircraft who have not yet cleared United States Customs and Border Protection can be deplaned. Once these efforts are complete, we will coordinate with local CBP officials to develop procedures that will allow international passengers who have not yet cleared United States Customs and Border Protection to be deplaned into these sterile areas to the extent practicable.
The Akron-Canton Airport will provide public access to its emergency contingency plan through one or more of the following means:
