Cleveland Hopkins CLE Airport Overview

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport CLE serves the City of Cleveland and its surroundings and is northeast Ohio's largest commercial airport. In Winter, CLE rarely closes due to inclement weather conditions, in large part due to the efforts of its efficient snow removal team.

CLE Airport is about 10 miles southwest of Cleveland - accessible via Interstate Highway 71 south from downtown Cleveland, or  north from Ohio Turnpike / South communities.

Counting an estimated 9 million passengers per annum, and having two parallel runways, Cleveland Hopkins International is served by major airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe. 

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport has one passenger terminal.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Due to ongoing modernization projects it is important that passengers arrive 90 minutes to two hours ahead of their scheduled flight.  Signs have been put up for dropoff/ pickup areas, curbside check-ins, security checkpoints, and for possible temporary airline ticket counter locations.  For passenger pickup, it is suggested that you use the cell phone lot (see 'Parking Map').

Current and future Airport developments:  Major upgrade work started mid-May 2015 on the Terminal's external facade and on the Ticketing Lobby Project (including upgrades to some parking facilities) - to be completed by May 2016. Thereafter, the terminal will have higher ceilings & more natural light.
