MIAMI — US Airways will launch new daily nonstop flights between Phoenix and Cleveland on October 3.
Currently, United operates nonstop flights between these two cities, but it will discontinue flying this route later this month.
In February, United announced that it would make substantial cuts to its Cleveland operations. Ultimately, the airport would be de-hubbed. The majority of United’s cuts were to regional flying. However, the Phoenix and Cleveland route was the only all mainline route to be cut.
Over the last few month, Air Canada, Delta, and Frontier have all announced new routes or upgrades to their existing Cleveland operations to fill the void United is leaving. However, American/US Airways and Southwest were the only carriers to remain quiet about the possibility of growth in Cleveland.
Flights between Phoenix and Cleveland begin on October 3. The new flight departs Phoenix at 3:00PM, and it will arrive in Cleveland at 9:56PM. All times local.
Flights between Cleveland and Phoenix begin the following day (October 4). The flight will depart at 7:40AM and arrive in Phoenix at 9:04AM. All times local.
US Airways will operate a Airbus A320 between the two cities.
Currently, US Airways and American connect Cleveland with Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/For Worth, Miami, New York JFK, and Philadelphia.
