Less than two weeks after United announced that it will close its hub at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, rival Delta Air Lines is looking to capitalize on a couple of popular business routes abandoned by United.
According to its website, Delta Air Lines will begin flights from Cleveland to both Indianapolis and Raleigh/Durham starting June 5. Both routes will be operated six times weekly on CRJ aircraft.
United announced that it will close its Cleveland hub by June 4 earlier this month, one day prior to the start of Delta’s new routes. The de-hub of Cleveland will result in the suspension of service to over 40 cities from Cleveland on United.
