United Airlines will launch flights between Austin and Cleveland from 25 September, re-entering the market that was dropped nearly five years ago.

A United Express partner will operate the once daily flight on a 66-seat Bombardier CRJ700, according to Austin-Bergstrom International airport.

Continental Airlines offered a flight in the market on a 50-seat Embraer ERJ145 from April 2003 until September 2008. The carrier merged with Chicago-based United in 2010.

No airlines offer nonstop flights between Austin and Cleveland, Innovata schedules show.

United is the second largest carrier after Southwest Airlines in Austin with a 15.7%, or 111 million available seat kilometres (ASK), share of capacity, and is the largest in Cleveland with a 72.6%, or 377 million ASKs, share, according to Innovata Flightmaps Analytics.
