Akron-Canton airport has put together a 10 year plan consisting of 10 projects. The cost will be $110 Million dollars. This will be the biggest and most ambitious plan to be ever undertaken in the history of the airport. Any of us might say why are they doing all this. With the expressed interest in recent years by various airlines including Southwest and to maintain the attraction of said airlines and the fliers I am guessing that has a lot to do with it.
It should be specifically noted that they are moving forward despite nearby airports such as CLE and PIT. They are not making any current economic excuses that sometimes curtail action at some airports.
It appears to me that with a massive project of this size they are making it known that they want to be a major player in Ohio.
The ten projects within the overall effort are at the link below. I wish them luck. This will be a heavy lift but obviously they are determined to have a first-class operation.
