Keeping the United Airlines hub in Cleveland is vital to our
region’s economy. Find out how you can help ensure the continued
success of one of Northeast Ohio’s most important assets below.
The United hub gives our region a clear advantage over other
Midwestern metropolitan areas of similar and even larger size.
Thanks to the hub, CLE travelers enjoy:
> More than 70 non-stop destinations
> On average, nearly 250 daily departures
> Multiple flights per day to most major markets
> Access to single-connection international services
Plus, there are strong indicators that Northeast Ohio’s travel market will
continue its ongoing, dramatic improvement—spurred, in large part, by the
more than $9 billion in major capital investment now under way. This
includes new hotels, corporate headquarters, major expansion projects
at our world-class health care facilities, the Cleveland Medical Mart and
Convention Center, and the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland.
$4 billion annual impact
The hub’s $4 billion dollar annual economic impact on our region is reflective
of its importance to Northeast Ohio. Linking business travelers with their
customers...patients with our world-class health care facilities...conventioneers
to the new Convention Center and Medical Mart...tourists with the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and other
cultural amenities...families to their loved ones in other cities...
Why support the hub?
Because the high level of air service it provides is a valuable asset to both
travellers and the Greater Cleveland economy as a whole. Having a hub at
CLE helps position our community as a prime, desirable location when
companies are making business retention, attraction, and expansion
decisions. And without the hub, leisure travellers will have more limited
flight choices that include longer flight times with more connections.
