WHO IS FLYING

And from where

A new study done for the Western Reserve Port Authority says the “catchment area” for the local airport — the area from which most of an airport’s passengers come — is 519,611 passengers per year.

The study says 60 percent of flyers here use Pittsburgh International Airport and only 18 percent use Cleveland, with 12 percent using Detroit Metropolitan Airport, 9 percent using Akron-Canton Airport and 1 percent using others.

Top airlines used in the local catchment area are:

United (19 percent)

AirTran (18 percent)

US Air (13 percent)

Delta (13 percent)

Southwest (13 percent)

Allegiant (12 percent)

American (7 percent)

Frontier (2 percent)

Spirit (1 percent)

Others (2 percent).
