The Akron-Canton Airport is working with government, civic and area business leaders in creating an incentive fund to attract new air service to its facility in the city of Green.
The incentive is one strategy that airport and community officials are planning to use to boost operations at the regional airport, which has seen a dramatic loss of passengers and flights since the coronavirus pandemic brought the travel industry to a near standstill throughout the past 10 months.
The fund, is part of an overall Statewide effort intended to help Ohio airports compete for new routes, including international air service, against airports in Pennsylvania, Indiana and other states that provide subsidies for flights. The fund also can be used by airports seeking to restore service eliminated in recent months.
JobsOhio will be asked to contribute a majority of the proceeds. The remaining proceeds will come from the Akron-Canton community, including businesses and local governments such as the County of Summit, the City of Green.
CAM, Inc. will be contributing to this fund as a means to support a much-needed amenity for area businesses, its tenants and our community. It’s a critical component to maintaining and enhancing the economic vitality of the region.
