Welcome to the new Burke Lakefront Airport (BKL) Web site!  We are pleased to unveil the new look and feel of BKL!

As a frequent user of Burke, you know the importance of the airport to the Northeast Ohio region - it’s a convenient airport for corporate travel with direct links to downtown Cleveland; it’s a vital connection for our growing world-class health care organizations; it’s home to many sports teams who use the facility on-and off-season, but more importantly, it’s the reliever airport to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE).

If this is your first time visiting the Burke web site, we suspect you will find it to be a one-stop-shop for all your general aviation needs in Cleveland - whether it’s up-to-the-minute weather forecasts, fuel prices or what you can do during your visit to our city - we know Burke will always and continue to be your first choice.

We have big plans for Burke and you will learn all about then through this new web site.  Currently, Burke’s Master Plan is in the final stage of approval by the FAA.  Once approved, additional infrastructure and operational improvements will be made, incorporating advanced aviation technology to better serve private jet operators.

Beyond the runway, private-public redevelopment of the Lakefront is planned.  It includes the creation of retail shops, restaurants, residential, parking, and office space - capitalizing on Burke’s premier location and proximity to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and professional sports facilities. 

While we at Burke like to focus our energy and efforts to the sky, we will also add keeping you informed and updated with what is happening at Burke and in the city of Cleveland.  We hope you find the new web site informative, easy-to-use, and you return on a regular basis.

Thank you for using BKL!
