"Canton-Akron Airport" Ohio Transportation Tip by Ewingjr98

Ohio Transportation: 15 reviews and 14 photos


Canton-Akron is located about 10 miles from both Canton and Akron, Ohio, probably 45 miles from Cleveland and 115 miles from Pittsburgh, offering a convenient alternative to the larger airports. I chose Akron because fares were lower than both Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and it is a similar distance from my house as either of the other big airports.

CAK just completed a great renovation that increased the number of gates from 9 to 12 and added a new set of restaurants outside of security where families can wait for passengers. We sat at the sports bar for an hour or so, enjoying a few good beers and I had a pretty good buffalo chicken sandwich.

Former New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson died in a crash at this airport in 1979

Don't confuse CAK with nearby Akron Fulton International Airport which is located just a few miles southeast of Akron.
