Icelandair Airline Launch in Cleveland
Icelandair Airline Launch in Cleveland International Business Network Meeting Embassy Suites April 25, 2018
The International Business Network (IBN) was organized in 2005 by a group of highly experienced international business people with the specific purpose of helping each other and others involved in international business. Its goal is to stimulate economic growth in Northeast Ohio through international business by:
networking people in international business,
attracting a younger and more diverse population into international business,
supporting existing international business activities,
educating people on international business practices and opportunities,
hosting and helping others host incoming missions and business visitors,
and advising businesses in northeast Ohio seeking to expand their international scope.
On April 25, 2018 the IBN meeting centered on the Icelandair announcement of flights to and from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The new Icelandair flight service from Cleveland to Europe will begin in May and includes a variety of options for stopovers in Iceland.
Don Esarove of the Northeast Ohio International Business Network introduced Robert Kennedy, Cleveland Hopkins Airport Director of Port Control, at an event welcoming Icelandair to Cleveland. Robert Kennedy spoke of the honor that Cleveland Hopkins Airport earned last year.
