New Flights at OAK

From the number of passengers, to the quantity of airlines and flights from which to choose, to the sheer infrastructure of the Airport and the amenities within it – Oakland International Airport is trending upward.

OAK has long been known for its convenient accessibility, on-time reliability, and Oakland charm.  OAK emerged in 2016 as a global destination, recognized as a gateway to the Bay Area’s world renowned attractions, and a notable player in the Aviation industry.

With new flights and routes, growth has and continues to encompass Oakland International, as it now claims the ranks of third largest California gateway to Europe (by number of markets), fourth busiest airport in the state, and second busiest airport in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Of the three major airports in the region, it is also the airport located closest to more of the Bay Area’s 7 million residents. OAK is the closest airport to the region’s top tourism and entertainment venues.

Oakland International Airport is growing in many ways to accompany the recent limelight and new appreciation for one of the West Coast’s most diverse and historic cities.

The Airport has now experienced four years of consecutive monthly passenger traffic gains. More than 13 million passengers traveled through the gates at Oakland International in 2017.
