Akron-Canton Airport will get a new facelift. A $34 million facelift, to be precise.
Rick McQueen, the soon-to-be-outgoing president and CEO of the Akron-Canton Airport, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the changes happening at the facility. McQueen says the plans are to expand and update the airport for the modern-day traveler, complete with charging stations for cell phones and new restaurants and other amenities.
McQueen, who will be retiring at the end of 2018, believes the upgrades will help meet the needs of today for the regional airport, which opened its first terminal in 1955 and expanded seven years later. The project looks to be done in late 2019 or into early 2020.
