Akron-Canton Regional Airport is a commercial Class C airport located in the city of Green, in southern Summit County, Ohio (a very small portion of both runways extend into Stark County,) roughly 10 mi (16.1 km) southeast of Akron, Ohio, roughly 10 NM (0 km) northwest of Canton, Ohio, and roughly 45 mi (72.4 km) south of Cleveland, Ohio. The airport is jointly operated by Summit County and Stark County.

Money for the airport was initially allocated during World War II for defense purposes, but the construction stalled over a controversy relating to whether public funding of airport construction would be appropriate. As a result, private funding was essential to the initial construction of the airport, particularly in purchasing the land. The airport was dedicated on October 13, 1946, but permanent terminal facilities were not built until 1955.

The airport has two runways - 7,601, and 8,205 feet (2,317 and 2,501 m) long, both 150 feet (46 m) wide.
