Delta Air Lines Adds Daily OAK-Atlanta Nonstop
Oakland, CA (May 23, 2015) – Delta Air Lines has announced the addition of a new daily nonstop flight between Oakland International Airport (OAK) and its largest hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport starting October 1, 2015. The new service augments Delta’s existing daily nonstop flights connecting Oakland with its hubs at Salt Lake City (SLC) and Los Angeles (LAX).
For westbound travelers, Delta’s new flights to centrally located Oakland International and its new BART rail station provide convenient access to key business and leisure destinations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. For eastbound travelers, the new flights to Hartsfield-Jackson offer superior access to the South East, as well as same-carrier connections to dozens of points beyond throughout Delta’s global route network.
“Atlanta has been one of our largest underserved markets at Oakland International, and this new daily service by Delta Air Lines will help meet the demand,” said Deborah Ale Flint, Director of Aviation for Port of Oakland.
Beginning October 1, Delta’s new flight will depart Atlanta daily at 5:30 p.m. and arrive at Oakland at 7:53 p.m. The return flight will depart Oakland at 8:30 p.m. and arrive in Atlanta at 6:10 a.m. (All times local.)
Delta will operate the new flights using Boeing 737-800 aircraft with seating for 160 passengers.
Delta Air Lines currently offers up to 72 weekly departures to three destinations and connections to Delta and SkyTeam destinations around the world from OAK.
