Allegiant Air has announced that they are moving its services from Akron-Canton Airport to Cleveland Hopkins Airport beginning February of next year.
The airline says the decision doubles the number of weekly routes out of Northeast Ohio.
Any customers who purchased tickets for flights leaving out of Akron-Canton Airport next year can be re-accommodated from Cleveland Hopkins or receive a full refund.
CAK released this statement following the announcement:
"We were informed by Allegiant Air that despite great performance at Akron-Canton Airport they will cease service at CAK on February 15, 2017.
Although we hate to lose any airline service, we do not anticipate a significant impact from this announcement as customers have many other exceptional vacation destination options from CAK.
Customers can still very easily and affordably fly to Florida and Myrtle Beach nonstop from CAK aboard Spirit Airlines. Customers looking for great fares, exceptional service and easy connections can also fly American, Delta, Southwest or United from CAK.
Despite this reduction in service, CAK capacity (number of available seats daily) is anticipated to be an increase in the second quarter of 2017 (after service ends) over this year. Customers with Allegiant Air reservations after February 15 should contact the airline directly at www.allegiantair.com or call 1-702-505-8888."
