United Airlines inaugurates nonstop flights between Akron-Canton Airport and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport
Green, OH: United Airlines has inaugurated nonstop service from Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) to Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), United’s premier gateway to Latin America. The daily flight reduces travel times to Texas’ largest city by over two hours versus connecting flights.
“We are thrilled to welcome CAK’s very first route to and from Texas in the airport’s 72-year history,” said Rick McQueen, President and CEO of the Akron-Canton Airport. “Houston is the connection our community needs to Texas and beyond. It is now easier than ever to quickly access Dallas-Ft. Worth, San Diego, New Orleans, Cozumel and Mexico City through this robust United hub. Both leisure and business travelers will enjoy the opportunities this flight brings to the region.”
