CAK Emergency Contingency Plan
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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:
- Provide for the deplanement of passengers;
- Provide for the sharing of facilities and make gates available at the airport;
- Provide a sterile area following excessive tarmac delays for passengers who have not yet cleared United States Customs & Border Protection (CBP).
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.
