Voice of Travelers to Akron

Airfare ticket to Akron from Chicago

I needed an airfare ticket to fly to Akron. In order to reach Akron, I booked my ticket from Chicago O'Hare airport to the Akron-Canton airport. I bought this ticket with American Eagle and I loved their service. Once in Akron, I bought a bus ticket and took a bus to reach downtown Akron. After my visit to Akron, I flew back to Chicago, but this time with a ticket bought at United Express. This airline gave great service as well, totally worth the ticket price. If I fly to Akron again, I will consider buying my airfare ticket with these two airlines.

Visiting Akron and for wedding

I booked a ticket to fly to Akron in Ohio. It was a two-part ticket: first I flew from San Francisco to Chicage O'Hare airport, and then I continued with another ticket to Akron from Chicago. This is because I could not find a ticket for a direct flight from San Francisco to Akron. The ticket was cheap, purchased with United Express. United Express is good because of the cheap ticket prices and I prefer it for my flights. Once in Akron, I tried to change my flight ticket to fly home from Akron a day earlier, and my ticket agent helped me do it. My new ticket was issued the night before I was ready to leave Akron.
