CLEVELAND (AP) - Officials say Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is showing signs of a rebound for the first time since United Airlines pulled its hub.

The Plain Dealer reports (https://bit.ly/1DPVH1k ) the airport has had two consecutive months of increases in passenger traffic and seats available for booking compared with the same period last year

And Hopkins saw an increase in the number of flights in June for the first time since the airport lost its hub status.

About 750,000 passengers used the airport in June, a 17 percent increase over June 2014. That’s when United finished dismantling its Cleveland hub.

Hopkins director Ricky Smith’s last day was Friday. Mayor Frank Jackson hasn’t named his replacement.
