Some additional information about the history of Akron-Canton International Airport is below (sourced from Wikipedia):

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, but permanent terminal facilities were not built until 1955.

In 2005, 1.43 million passengers flew through Akron-Canton, over three times the number just ten years earlier. It is one of the fastest-growing airports in the Midwest, and attracts passengers not only from the Akron/Canton area, but also from the Cleveland metropolitan area.

In 2006, the airport completed a major expansion and renovation of the terminal, including the addition of a new terminal wing off the main concourse-bring the number of gates to 12 (up from 9), new baggage areas, a food court, and improved aesthetics.
