Delta Air Lines launches new route from Los Angeles to Oakland

August 1, 2011: The re-introduction of Delta (SkyWest) services between Oakland and Los Angeles, with five daily flights. Oakland’s Aviation Marketing Manager John Albrecht tells “The plane did leave 100% full – 30 passengers connecting to other Delta services in the US and Mexico and 20 travelling to the ‘local’ SF Bay-LA Basin. A good time was had by all! Delta, through its processor Western Airlines, has been serving the sunnyside of the San Francisco Bay at OAK since 1946. We're thrilled that they have re-commenced the service to LA to compliment their existing service to Salt Lake City.” The happy Delta Air Lines ladies at OAK’s Gate 15 for this first flight are Michelle Niksich, Teresa Schroeder and Jonelle Booze-Johnson.

  • Delta Air Lines entered the intra-California route between Los Angeles (LAX) and Oakland (OAK), the airport in the San Francisco Bay Area analysed this week, on 1 August. Complementing the airline’s 75 weekly flights to SFO, the SkyTeam carrier now flies 35 times a week to Oakland. Flights are operated by SkyWest with 50-seat CRJ200 aircraft. Competition comes from Southwest’s 92 weekly flights on the route. Joe Esposito, Delta’s Managing Director Domestic Network Planning, commented: “Oakland is one of the top local markets from Los Angeles, and Delta’s new service adds travel choices for our customers traveling between these key West Coast cities. In addition, Oakland customers will enjoy access to Delta’s international gateway in Los Angeles, with convenient connections on Delta and our SkyTeam partner carriers to cities across Europe, Asia and Latin America.”
