Airports in Cleveland

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE)


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.

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.


The airport is situated 13 miles (21km) southwest of Cleveland.

Getting to the city

Taxis, shuttles, and limos operate at the airport. The RTA provides a regular train service between the airport and downtown Cleveland via the Tower City Station.

It departs every 15 minutes and takes less than 30 minutes. The train station is on the lower level of the main terminal, while hotel shuttles can be called from the hotel courtesy phones in the baggage claim area. Ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Lyft are also available.


GMT -5 (GMT -4 from mid-March to the first Sunday in November).
