The US state of Ohio has unveiled a $1.6bn master plan to expand Cleveland Hopkins International Airport over the next 24 years.

The plan includes modernisation of the main terminal, widening concourses, a new customs facility, expanding the ticketing and baggage screening areas and building a new hotel.

Work also involves moving walkways on Concourse C and adding a new mini-terminal to give passengers a more direct route to the remote Concourse D, which is designed for smaller regional jets.

There are also plans for the expansion of the parking garage and construction of a new cargo and maintenance facility to handle more cargo planes.

The project proposal, yet to be approved by the Cleveland City Council, will receive 44% of its funding from the US Federal Aviation Administration while 28% will come from the city of Cleveland, and a hotel operator to provide the remaining 28%.

The expansion will allow the airport to handle 11.4 million by 2035 from 5.5 million people last year.
