The new head of the Akron-Canton Airport wants to know what businesses and residents want from their regional airport.

“It takes a village” to grow an airport, Renato¬†“Ren” Camacho said Wednesday in an interview the day after the airport’s board of trustees revealed his hiring.

Last year, passengers totaled 1.27 million, down 9.48 percent from the prior year.  Click HERE to read entire article!
