Although most U.S. airports used the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Hardwick Field was assigned HDI by the FAA but had no designation from the IATA.[2]

Cleveland Regional Jetport opened on January 25, 2013, approximately two miles east of Hardwick Field, and consists of a 6,200 foot by 100 foot runway.[3] It was created to replace Hardwick Field, which closed on December 31, 2013.[4][5]
