We know traveling with little ones can be intimidating for parents, which is why we spent a morning with a group of local moms hosting our first ever CAK Moms Tour! Moms and their little ones had the opportunity to experience the full airport process from parking lot to gate, all while asking questions and learning more from Spirit Airlines and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
On the tour agenda, moms practice parking, riding the shuttle bus, airline check-in with infants and little ones, security screening with baby gear, and wayfinding through the airport to their gates. Afterwards, they're able to share feedback on the experience for future consideration of facility improvements and resources.
The CAK Moms Tour is designed to help alleviate anxiety parents have while traveling with little ones because, just like moms, CAK wants to do everything possible to make the journey easy-breezy.
With fun, family-friendly destinations served nonstop from CAK like Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, New York (plus 9 other nonstops!) so it’s with great pride that our airport is designed to make families feel comfortable while they’re here.
This tour will help highlight the ease of flying CAK and the accessibility our community has to memorable vacations at affordable fares.
The first-of-its-kind tour is planned to be held twice a year, with room to grow based on demand. Parents can always find a permanent Flying with Kids resource guide on akroncantonairport.com, and are encouraged to ask questions and share their family-friendly ideas with the airport.
