Travelers flying out of Akron-Canton Airport will have one less airline option to choose from. Spirit Airlines, which had announced a "temporary hiatus" at CAK back in April, informed airport leaders on Wednesday that it will not be resuming service.
The hiatus took effect in June, but Spirit Airlines told 3News at the time that they had planned to restart flights at the airport in November. "Yesterday (Wednesday) we were informed by Spirit Airlines that despite good performance at Akron-Canton Airport they will not be relaunching service to Orlando (MCO) due to the continuous constrains on their network," said Lisa Dalpiaz, Akron-Canton Airport Vice President of Marketing and Air Service Development in an email to 3News.
"Spirit has not been operating from CAK since June 2022. 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."
