In 2014, less than four years after Continental and United announced that the airlines were merging operations, the newly expanded United shut down its hub at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Since that time, the number of nonstop flights from the airport has dwindled from 58 to 15 – a nearly 75 percent decrease in two years. The loss of direct access to a long list of destinations across the country was another blow to air travel at nearby large regional airports. In the past decade, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati also lost their hub status.
