Film at OAK


OAK supports the needs of the news media to get photos, b-roll and to conduct recorded and live interviews for their stories. Media representatives must be credentialed and should contact OAK’s Media Relations Office prior to coming out to the airport. Be prepared to show media credentials and a driver’s license to and have the vehicle searched by Alameda County Sheriff representatives prior to parking in OAK’s “Live Media” parking area. The Live Media stalls may be used only when covering a story or event at OAK and going “live” from the airport. All other media vehicles may park in the public lots located across from the terminals.
