  • Flights to and from Boston are going off without disruption at the Akron-Canton Airport.
    Kristie Van Auken, the airport’s senior vice president, said that a flight departed to Boston about 7 a.m. and another arrived about 11 a.m. Friday.
    Tensions were high in the Boston area Friday as a manhunt was continuing for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
    The two suspects killed an MIT police officer and hurled explosives at police in a car chase and gun battle overnight that left one of them dead and his brother on the loose, according to the Associated Press.
    Thousands of officers had taken the manhunt to the streets of the Boston area. But the sweep for the suspect apparently did not affect flights to and out of Boston.
    At the Akron-Canton Airport, a flight is scheduled to leave for Boston at 3:51 p.m., Van Auken said. A Boston flight is scheduled to land at here at 7:50 p.m.
    “To our knowledge there is no disruption,” Van Auken said late Friday morning.
