Healthy Travel

A Better Way To Go Akron Canton Airport

TSA Screening Update

According to the TSA, face masks are no longer required for your upcoming air travel. If you prefer to keep yours on, then please do so. The CDC continues to recommend travelers wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.


The safety and health of our passengers, tenants, and employees has always been and will continue to be our number-one priority. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that fully vaccinated people can travel at low risk to themselves.

In an effort to ensure all passengers feel comfortable while traveling, CAK has made several proactive enhancements to our facility and our cleaning procedures. Below is information on what the airport is doing, travel impacts and operational impacts. This information is updated on a regular basis as information becomes available.

Flying through CAK brings about far more than ease and convenience. Health enhancements make the convenient travel experience even better. Learn more about how CAK has made the airport experience a stress-free, healthy experience for your travel needs.
