AKRON, Ohio -- A record number of passengers flew in and out of the Akron-Canton Airport in 2012.
The airport actually topped the record in November before the busy holiday travel season. Close to 1.7 million passengers went through the Akron-Canton Airport in the first 11 months of the year.
Airport officials tell the Akron Beacon Journal that the arrival of Southwest in August helped with the increase along with low fares and the airport's small size.
