GREEN The Akron Canton Airport is making it a little easier to escape the cold this winter.
Spirit Airlines this week resumed nonstop service from the airport to Tampa International Airport and Ft. Myers Southwest Florida National Airport.
Tampa and Ft. Myers are top winter destinations, airport President and CEO Rick McQueen said in a news release. "”We are thrilled that Spirit Airlines is bringing back the service again this year and better yet, at a price customers can afford."
The return of those flights coincides with the airport's one-year anniversary with Spirit Airlines. To celebrate, the airport will host gate parties, baggage claim surprises, an in-terminal concert and a Facebook contest to giveaway free round-trip tickets.
Spirit also flies nonstop to Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale.
