Akron–Canton Airport (IATA: CAK, ICAO: KCAK, FAA LID: CAK) is a commercial airport in the city of Green, in southern Summit County, Ohio (a small piece of both runways is in Stark County), just off Interstate 77 about 14 miles (23 km) southeast of Akron and 10 miles northwest of Canton. The airport is jointly operated by Summit County and Stark County. Money for the airport was initially allocated during World War II for defense 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, as the Akron–Canton–Massillon Airport; the name was later changed to Akron–Canton Regional Airport. Passenger air service began in 1948 when American, United, Capital and Eastern airlines moved from the Akron Fulton International Airport. A permanent terminal was built in 1955 and expanded in 1962. The airport has two runways, 7,601 and 8,204 feet (2,317 and 2,501 m) long, both 150 feet (46 m) wide.
