New fees at Hopkins Airport starting next year

(Cuyahoga County) - Anyone who drives a limo or shuttle to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport will have to now pay a four-dollar fee for each ride.  

City Council decided the money will be used to pay for improvements at passenger pick-up and drop-off areas at the airport. 

Ride-share drivers are already paying the fee. They take affect in 2019.

The City of Cleveland is also suspending two officials who were involved in a security incident at the airport last week. 

Assistant Director of Port Control Fred Szabo and Chief of Operations Darnell Brown have both been suspended without pay. 

 The alleged incident happened on October 25th. City officials haven't said what the incident is, but there are reports it involved helping someone avoid security checkpoints.
