Green, OH--   Going to Florida this winter? Then look no farther than Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). Beginning January 4, 2007, AirTran Airways will add daily nonstop service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, aboard comfy Boeing 717 aircraft. The new service will compliment the carrier's other nonstop Florida flights from CAK to Orlando, Tampa and Fort Myers.  Service to Fort Lauderdale/ Hollywood International Airport (FLL) will be the airline's seventh non-stop destination from CAK.

"We are excited to add our 7th non-stop destination from Akron-Canton Airport. With daily non-stops to Atlanta, New York, Boston, Orlando, Tampa, Fort Myers and now Fort Lauderdale, AirTran Airways quality low-fare service meets the service needs of Northeast Ohio," said John P. Kirby, director of strategic planning and scheduling.

"Northeast Ohioans love Florida and flock to the Miami- Fort Lauderdale- Palm Beach corridor for both leisure and business trips," said airport director Fred Krum. "By adding daily Fort Lauderdale flights, AirTran Airways has made getting to the Southeast Florida region easier than ever. Couple that with a brand new concourse, shorter lines, less confusion and nonstop service to all four great Florida cities, and you'll see why AirTran Airways makes CAK the absolute best way to get to Florida this winter."

AirTran Airways serves more nonstop destinations and carries more passengers than any other airline at CAK. Because AirTran Airways has significantly reduced air fares in this market, CAK was ranked as the sixth least expensive airport in the country, in the US Department of Transportation's fourth quarter Domestic Airline Fares Consumer Report.
