CLEVELAND, Ohio Starting in December, United Airlines is adding new, weekly service between Cleveland Hopkins and Nassau, Bahamas.

The route will run Saturday only, starting Dec. 18. It was part of a larger announcement from United, which continues to emphasize leisure routes in the wake of the dramatic downturn in business travel due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The new flight departs from Cleveland at 9:05 a.m., arriving in the Bahamas at 12:10 p.m. The return flight leaves Nassau at 1:05 p.m., landing in Cleveland at 4:15 p.m. The route will use a 76-seat Embraer 175 aircraft. Tickets are on sale now.

United previously flew from Cleveland to Nassaus Lynden Pindling International Airport in 2014, the year the carrier closed its hub at Hopkins.

In the past year, United has increased its flying from Cleveland to numerous new leisure destinations adding Portland, Maine; Pensacola, Florida; and Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head and Charleston, South Carolina; this summer, as well as beefing up service to several destinations in Florida.

The carrier also flies weekly to Cancun, Mexico.

Spokeswoman Maddie King said the new Nassau flight is expected to run year-round.

In addition to the new Cleveland flight, United announced new service from Chicago to Guatemala City and Denver to Roatan, Honduras.

Throughout the pandemic, Latin America has remained one of the strongest regions for United with leisure demand meeting or exceeding 2019 levels, said Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances at United. We have been adding new flights to Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America since last summer and with todays announcement, United will fly 20 new routes across Latin America that we did not operate in 2019 so our customers can enjoy more beaches and warmer weather.
