CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The grounded Boeing 737 Max fleet continues to cause headaches for airlines and passengers in Northeast Ohio, and across the U.S.

This week, Icelandair decided to pull the plug on its flights from Cleveland to Europe.

“We were advised Monday that Icelandair, who flies the 737 Max 8 aircraft for their Cleveland route, will be canceling their service to CLE due to the indefinite grounding of the aircraft,” said Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Director Robert Kennedy. "While we are disappointed in the news, the recent service from Icelandair and WOW Air has shown the strength and demand from Cleveland and the Northern Ohio regional market to Europe. "

Cleveland airport officials didn’t specify whether the cancellations were temporary or permanent.
