MIAMI — After a year hiatus, American Airlines will re-launch flights between Cleveland and New York LaGuardia early next year.

Prior to United Airlines announcing plans to de-hub Cleveland earlier this year, American announced that it would stop flying between Cleveland and LaGuardia. Although, it now looks like the carrier was able to readjust its slots at LaGuardia and will re-enter the market on March 29, 2015.

The carrier plans to operate three daily roundtrip flights on weekdays between the two cities. On Saturdays, the carrier will fly one roundtrip flight, and on Sunday, the carrier will fly two roundtrip flights between the cities. American will utilize Envoy ERJ-140s on these flights.

Meanwhile, other air service changes are occurring in Cleveland.

Based on the updated schedule that came out this weekend, United has will reduce its frequencies between Cleveland and LaGuardia from eight daily roundtrip flights to six. This change will go into affect the same day that American plans to re-enter this market. It’s not clear if this change is due to American re-entering the market.

Delta currently operates five flights on weekdays between the two cities.

Last week,  JetBlue announced that Cleveland will become its newest BlueCity when it launches flights between Boston and Cleveland next year. Now, United has increased its frequency between Cleveland and Boston from four daily flights to five daily flights. Some believe that this change is in direct response to JetBlue entering the market early next year.
