Southwest Airlines ends Akron-Canton Airport nonstop service to Tampa, Las Vegas
NORTH CANTON, Ohio- Southwest Airlines is ending nonstop flights from Akron-Canton Airport to three vacation hot spots starting in the spring.
As of April 12, Southwest will no longer fly non-stop to Tampa, Orlando and Las Vegas, the airline announced on Tuesday. They are expanding service from Akron-Canton to Atlanta to three round-trip flights a day.
“While this news is disappointing for us, we are glad that Southwest will continue to provide access to its low-fares and exceptional customer service via Atlanta,” said Rick McQueen, president and CEO at Akron-Canton, in a news release on Tuesday.
According to the airport, passengers can fly from Atlanta to 100 cities in the Southwest Airlines network.
Earlier this year, Allegiant Air brought its low-cost flights to the Akron-Canton Airport.
