Akron-Canton Airport Really Taking Off

When the first Frontier Airlines flight from Akron-Canton Airport takes off this afternoon for Denver, it will mark another leap for an airport whose recent growth seems to know few bounds.

''If Frontier didn't think it would make money at Akron- Canton, it wouldn't have happened,''Ubaldi said. ''You can be sure they did their research.''

Frontier, a low-fare carrier, is an important factor in Akron- Canton's growth because it is the first to offer nonstop service to Denver, linking area travelers to 17 destinations in the West and five in Mexico.

Frontier's flights will compete with nonstop flights from Cleveland to Denver on United and Continental, as well as with a host of other airlines that connect through other cities for westbound travelers.
