More notes from the city of Cleveland:
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport has been severely impacted by the coronavirus. It has experienced more than a 90 percent reduction in passengers and an 87 percent reduction in flights.
The City says they recently received $46.3 million of CARES Act funding to support the continued safe and efficient operation of Hopkins. This funding will support several programs including landing fee stabilization, airport concessions and airport working capital.
Hopkins Airport temporarily suspended paid parking operations on March 21. As travel has begun to increase, the city is recommending to restart paid parking operations at the airport on June. All lots will be credit card operated to continue to keep our staff and guests safe. The Brown lot and Riveredge employee lot will remain closed with employee parking temporarily moved to the airport grounds.
