-- Carrier Also Adds A Third Daily Nonstop to Washington, DC --

Oakland, CA – JetBlue Airways today inaugurated twice-daily nonstop service between San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport (OAK) and Boston-Logan International Airport (BOS). This new service marks the fourth destination served by JetBlue from OAK. Also today, JetBlue added a third daily nonstop between OAK and Washington, DC - Dulles (IAD).

“JetBlue continues to bring more low-fare service to price-conscious Bay Area travelers,” said Director of Aviation Steve Grossman. “If you want to see the Oakland A’s play the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park or to vacation on Cape Cod, travelers now have a choice for affordable flights to BOS from the Bay Area’s most popular airport, Oakland International.”

OAK has served the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 75 years and is responsible for $4.5 billion in economic activity annually in the San Francisco Bay Area, generating over 70,000 jobs for the region. OAK is a revenue division of the Port of Oakland, an independent department of the City of Oakland, and served 13.5 million passengers and handled more than 600,000 metric tons of air cargo in 2003. In April, OAK broke ground on its $500 million Terminal Improvement Program that includes the renovation of and a five-gate addition to Terminal 2, and the construction of a multi-level parking garage. Program completion is expected in 2007.

OAK has over 200 flights a day on 11 domestic and international carriers to 38 nonstop destinations, including Atlanta, Boston, the Hawaiian Islands, New York, Washington, D.C., and Mexico and seasonal service to the Azores (Portugal), Costa Rica and Sun Valley, Idaho. OAK consistently has the fewest weather-related flight delays in the Bay Area.

All on-airport rental car companies are now located at the interim Rental Car Center at 7600 Earhart Road. A common-use shuttle bus transports rental car customers between this facility and the terminals every 10 minutes. Travelers are reminded that the 98th Avenue corridor is open to both inbound and outbound traffic creating a fast, direct route to and from Interstate 880. In March, the cross-airport roadway project opened providing residents and businesses of Bay Farm Island in the city of Alameda improved access to OAK and Interstate 880.
