Cleveland Celebrates the First of Many Improvements at Hopkins Airport
City officials highlighted the first round of renovations at Cleveland Hopkins Airport today. They showcased the more than $22 million in exterior and interior upgrades that started early last year.
Interim Airport Director Fred Szabo says these renovations will enhance Hopkins' passenger experience and improve efficiency.
“Today we celebrate the conclusion of the terminal façade and the parking canopy project, the initial phase of the airport’s signage program, and the completion of the Signature Corporate Aviation terminal at Burke Airport.
"But this isn’t the end of the airport improvements. We are currently commencing a project to institute an airport-wide inline baggage-handling system.”
The baggage upgrade should be finished by the end of next year.
Following next month’s Republican National Convention, renovations will begin on the airport’s concourse. City officials say the improvements will boost Hopkins competitiveness.
