GCP, city and Hopkins focus on boosting nonstop service on priority business routes

As air service out of Hopkins Airport (CLE) continues to evolve, the Greater Cleveland Partnership, the City of Cleveland and airport officials remain focused on how to restore nonstop service to seven priority business routes.

Priority destinations cities no longer served nonstop by United are Austin, Kansas City, New Orleans, Providence, R.I., San Antonio. San Diego and West Palm Beach. Efforts also include working to increase the frequency of nonstops to St. Louis, which is currently served by two nonstop flights from CLE.

"The partnership between the city and the business community around Hopkins airport remains strong,” says Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) President and CEO Joe Roman. “As the airline industry continues to evolve and adjust to market conditions, it’s anticipated that other carriers will add new service or increased frequencies to cities that are under-served."  Read more.
