WKYC has confirmed that United Airlines will be making severe cutbacks at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and will not continue its hub status.

The Investigator Tom Meyer was the first to break the story.

The cuts mean a majority of the United flights coming through Hopkins will be eliminated, as well as many local layoffs.

WKYC obtained a copy of a letter sent to employees from United Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek.
