Airports in Cleveland

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE)

Overview

One of the American Midwest's primary airports, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is the largest airport in Ohio. It serves roughly nine million passengers each year, mostly on domestic flights to cities like Chicago and Houston, and a few routes to Canada and Mexico.

The facility is fairly basic for an airport of its size, and passengers left unprepared may find themselves a bit bored in the terminal. However there are plenty of shopping and dining opportunities in the brand-new AIRMALL on Concourses B and C. A point of interest is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Gift Shop, selling memorabilia from the famous Cleveland landmark.

Location

The airport is situated 10 miles (16km) southwest of Cleveland.

Getting to the city

The Ground Transportation Services Office, which is responsible for taxis, shuttles and limos, is located at the north end of the baggage claim level on the lower level of the main terminal. The RTA provides a regular train service between the airport and downtown Cleveland via the Tower City Station and departs every 15 minutes and costs $2. The train station is on the lower level of the main terminal. Lorain County Transit (LCT) provides a bus service to and from the airport to the Elyria Park and Ride station in Elyria and Oberlin College. A single fare is $6 and the bus departs from the airport's ticketing level outside the United Airlines' ticket counter. Hotel shuttles can be called from the hotel courtesy phones in the baggage claim area.
