Spirit Airlines to Add Nonstop Flights Between Oakland and San Diego International Airport

Wednesday, March 9, 2022

Spirit Airlines has announced they will add nonstop service between Oakland, Calif. via Metropolitan Oakland International Airport (OAK) and San Diego International Airport (SAN) beginning May 25. This is the first new route Spirit Airlines has added at SAN since 2017.

“We appreciate Spirit Airlines growing their service at SAN and providing another option for San Diegans to get to the Bay Area,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO.

Oakland is just across the Bay from San Francisco. Its urban and diverse neighborhoods are home to boutique shops that sell locally crafted clothing and items; restaurants, eateries, and pop-ups that serve culinary delights represented from the multicultural population that makes up the community; and artists that provide the city with its creative expression.

Flights will operate between Oakland and San Diego once daily. Spirit Airlines also offers year-round nonstop service from SAN to Las Vegas via Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) and summer seasonal service to Dallas/Fort Worth via Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Houston via George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), Chicago via Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), and Detroit via Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW).

Owned and operated by San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (Airport Authority), San Diego International Airport (SAN) is one of the busiest single-runway commercial service airports in the world and the third-busiest airport in California. SAN contributes nearly $12 billion in economic activity for the region by connecting the world to San Diego and San Diego to the world. In November 2021, the Airport Authority began construction on the New T1 which includes the replacement of a new Terminal 1, improvements to the airfield, improved transportation connectivity to the airport, and a new administration building. The New T1 program’s total project budget is $3.4 billion and is estimated to create between 15,000 to 20,000 construction-related jobs.
