It has been nearly three years since the terrorist attacks that hit New York and Washington, and most airlines and airports still are feeling aftereffects of those deadly acts. Not among them is Akron-Canton Airport, which is one of the nation's fastest-growing airports and is reaping more federal money as a result. The U.S. Department of Transportation last week awarded Akron-Canton $6.3 million in grants as the airport pursues with an expansion program that includes building a new concourse to handle more traffic.
