- Official Airport of Cal Athletics
Airport and IMG Cal Athletics have embarked upon a 5-year partnership
wherein OAK carries the designation "Official Airport of Cal
Athletics". The initial phases were rolled out during football
season as Cal Memorial Stadium reopened this fall and basketball season
had just begun at Cal's Haas Pavilion. Cal generates more than 250,000
air journeys per year. OAK and Cal Athletics look forward to even more
developments in the months and years ahead.

A huge "thank
you" goes to Port of Oakland maritime shipping business partner -
Matson! The company made community service a big part of its annual

Len Tomberlin, a National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA)
union plumber for more than 20 years, worked on
the construction of the new air Traffic Control Tower project at OAK.
This project is funded entirely by a federal grant from The
American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA - also known as The
Stimulus Act). About 300 people were put to work building this
environmentally friendly tower, which will better serve the airport,
our passengers and our community when completed.
