First it was a reduction in flights, and now Concourse D is officially closed at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
The move is part of United Airlines’ plan to cut back in what the company says are unprofitable markets.
Some employees were moved to airports in other cities, while others lost their jobs.
Sixty percent of United flights at Hopkins have been cut.
Day-to-day Concourse D operations have been consolidated into Concourse C.
“That’s a very convenient course,” says travel agent and owner of Lakewood Travel Donald Miller.
He says United travelers no longer have to make the long trek to or from Concourse D, and other airlines are stepping in flying to attractive destinations.
Miller also believes people are starting to adjust to the initial shock of the United changes.
“It was more of a scare in numbers than it is a scare in reality, I mean, who flys to Erie anyway?” he said.
There are plans in the works to upgrade the terminal, and construction is going on at the airport’s Blue Lot to increase safety and access.
