 CAK Akron-Canton Regional Airport Info & Guide


Akron-Canton Regional AirportWhere is Akron-Canton Regional Airport?
Akron-Canton Airport (IATA: CAK, ICAO: KCAK, FAA LID: CAK) is a commercial Class C airport located in the city of Green, in southern Summit County, Ohio (a very small portion of both runways extend into Stark County,) roughly 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Akron, Ohio, roughly 10 nautical miles (19 km) northwest of Canton, Ohio, and roughly 45 miles (72 km) south of Cleveland, Ohio. The airport is jointly operated by Summit County and Stark County.


Money for the airport was initially allocated during World War II for defence purposes, but the construction stalled over a controversy relating to whether public funding of airport construction would be appropriate. As a result, private funding was essential to the initial construction of the airport, particularly in purchasing the land. The airport was dedicated on October 13, 1946, but permanent terminal facilities were not built until 1955. The airport has two runways - 7,601, and 7,598 feet (2,317 and 2,316 m) long, both 150 feet (46 m) wide.


The airport kicked off CAK 2018, its 10-year, $110-million Capital Improvement Plan in March 2008. The plan is the most ambitious capital improvement plan in Akron-Canton Airport’s history and calls for 10 projects in the next 10 years. One of those projects, a runway expansion, has already begun. Runway 5/23 will be extended from 7,600 ft (2,300 m). to 8,200 ft (2,500 m). Once completed, the runways will allow aircraft to fly farther – non-stop to anywhere in the U.S. and throughout Mexico and Canada. The safety area at the north end of the runway will be upgraded and an Instrument Landing System will be relocated. This project was expected to be completed in late 2010.
