CLEVELAND (AP) - Officials at the Cleveland airport are trying to determine the potential impact of United Airlines' decision to vacate one of its concourses.

United notified the city and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport on Monday that it will consolidate all of its flights onto Concourse C, leaving the 16 gates in Concourse D vacant. That will happen starting June 5.

United previously announced it is cutting more nonstop flights from Cleveland's airport after deciding to drop its money-losing hub there.

Port Control Director Ricky Smith said the airport will work with United Airlines and concession manager Airmall Cleveland Inc. to assess the impact of United's decision.

Smith said Cleveland's workforce development office is working with United to help people affected by job cuts.
