Cleveland Airport System
The Cleveland Airport System (CAS) is composed of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) and Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport (BKL). It’s the global air service gateway for 4 million residents in the Cleveland Plus region and creates approximately 5,000 jobs and generates approximately $4 billion annually for the regional economy.
The GCP and its partners in the public sector have created the Cleveland Airport System Business Advisory Committee (CASBAC), which is composed of business leaders from across Northeast Ohio who will advise on the strategic direction of the airport.
Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority
The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority is a governmental agency created in 1968 to manage maritime operations at the Port of Cleveland. Its maritime activities support 11,000 jobs that generate $572 million in personal incomes.
The GCP is working with the Port Authority to accelerate funding for federal port/maritime investment and for the Port’s relocation to East 55th Street, just east of downtown. The GCP also is supporting the Port Authority’s efforts to develop a containerized shipping capability and advocate for federal commitments to keep the St. Lawrence Seaway open year round.
