Francis. “We’re pleased that American has recognized the potential for success on this route, as travelers in both regions will benefit greatly from the convenient access. The extensive list of unique nonstop markets available via DFW make it possible to reach numerous markets not currently accessible with a single connection from OAK. The significance of this flight addition is substantial.
The new service announcement comes as Oakland International is in the midst of increasing levels of passenger traffic and nonstop destinations.
