Starting in early-April, United will begin to start reducing their operations in Cleveland. June 4 will be the last day that Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is a hub for United.

Last Day as a United Hub-June 4, 2014


Early Saturday morning (February 8), United Airlines updated their reservation system to reflect their new Cleveland schedule.

On June 4, 2014, United will operate their last departures from Cleveland to: Atlanta, Austin, Buffalo, Columbus, Dayton, Erie, Flint, Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Richmond, Syracuse, and Toronto. These cities are the last phase of United’s Cleveland operation reduction plan.

On June 4, United Express flight 5824 is scheduled to arrive from Chicago O’ Hare 12 minutes before midnight. United 5824 will signify the end of Cleveland being a hub for United.

United Express flight 4120 will depart Cleveland for Chicago O’ Hare at 9:05PM EST. United 4120 is scheduled to be United’s last departure from Cleveland while it is a hub.

First Day as a Non-Hub-June 5, 2014


On June 5, United will operate 72 departures to 20 destinations. 25 of the 72 departures will be operated by mainline aircraft while 47 of the 72 departures will be operated by regional aircraft. There will be approximately 5,847 seats available on the 72 departures.

This is subject to change. United may change which mainline aircraft types will operate the mainline flights as June 5 approaches.

*The number of seats may be slightly off. We selected the most common aircraft configurations based on United’s timetable.

The June 5 departure schedule (above) seems to be an accurate representation of United’s new post-hub Cleveland schedule. However, it is important to note that the schedule will look different on weekends. United will not fly any flights to some cities (Dallas/Ft. Worth and St. Louis to name a few) from Cleveland on Saturdays.

Update: United plans to move their 2014 Shareholders meeting in Chicago instead of June.
