Southwest Airlines Expands Service from OAK to Baltimore and Boise
-- Carrier Now Offers 141 Daily Nonstops from Its Bay Area Hub --
Oakland, CA -- Southwest Airlines today expands service from Oakland International Airport (OAK) by inaugurating a new daily nonstop to the Washington, D.C. area via Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) and adding a second daily nonstop to Boise, Idaho (BOI). OAK is Southwest's fifth largest market in its 63-city system.
These new flights from OAK follow a service expansion announcement issued by Southwest earlier this year. Kevin Krone, Southwest Airlines Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Distribution, said in a June news release that, "...we will also be adding new low-fare transcontinental service between Oakland and Baltimore/Washington which we are sure will be a hit with business and leisure travelers."
"Southwest continues to expand its reach with more long-haul routes from Oakland International Airport, giving Bay Area businesses and residents more travel choices to the Washington, DC region," said Steve Grossman, director of aviation for the Port of Oakland. "All of this new service enhances Oakland's dominance as the low-cost capital of the West".
