A message about our commitment to efficient air service at CLE

Read our letter—a full page ad in this week’s Crain’s Cleveland Business—about GCP’s nonstop commitment to ensure that Hopkins Airport has efficient service for Cleveland travelers and visitors.

It says, in part: "Convenient and affordable air service benefits all of Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio – business and leisure travelers alike. That’s why we intend to be relentless in our efforts to help attract additional flights, destinations and carriers to CLE to complement United’s nonstop service to 20 cities." Read more.

Important message about the CLE United Hub announcement

Statement by GCP President and CEO Joe Roman

While this business decision by United is unfortunate, we have long recognized that this was one possible consequence of the United-Continental merger after witnessing similar outcomes in other markets through consolidation within the industry.

Fortunately, our airport and city are better positioned to attract additional service than they were at the time of the merger. The airport is improved, costs are down, we have more traffic-generating assets and the business community is mobilized and committed.

Because efficient air service benefits all of Greater Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, our goal is to minimize the impact on travelers and to ensure convenient and affordable air service here. Therefore, we will now mount an aggressive effort to replace as many lost routes as possible. Click to read more.
