American Airlines announced that it plans to begin new shuttle service between Chicago O’Hare and New York’s LaGuardia Airport on April 4.

The carrier will offer hourly service between the two airports, with up to 15 flights per weekday.

Passengers in the main cabin will be offered complimentary beer and wine, and the service will have dedicated gates.

The American Shuttle operates between New York’s LaGuardia, Boston Logan International, and Ronald Reagan Washington National airports.

American Shuttle is the descendant of the original Eastern Air Lines Shuttle, which commenced operations in 1961. For 15 months in 1989 and 1990, the shuttle was operated as the Trump Shuttle, which defaulted on loans in 1990. It then became the USAir Shuttle, taking on the US Airways name in the late 1990s when the company rebranded. US Airways merged with American in 2013 and the shuttle was renamed as part of the merger.
