State auditor to scrutinize United’s cuts at Cleveland Hopkins

Associated Press

CLEVELAND: The Ohio Attorney General’s Office says an independent auditor will investigate whether United Airlines adhered to a 2010 agreement about keeping certain flights at Cleveland’s main airport.

United is dropping its money-losing hub at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and cutting 60 percent of its departures there. That’s expected to cost 470 jobs.

The state wants United to reconsider its decision.

The loss had been feared at the city-owned airport since United merged with Continental in 2010. The Plain Dealer reports a complex deal struck then with the attorney general’s office required that the merged airline maintain an average of about 160 flights daily for two years.

The attorney general’s office says an auditor will determine whether United met those terms, but further details about the audit won’t be public.
