Traveling from Oakland.

Southwest Airlines proudly serves Oakland International Airport.

Take a break from the West Coast and board a Southwest flight from Oakland International Airport to the destination of your dreams. Flying with Southwest means you can trade the salty sea air of the Bay Area for freshwater lakes, the plains states, or perhaps some much needed southern comfort. Make travel and wanderlust a priority this season! Whether you take a cab or book a shuttle ride, departing from Oakland International Airport is simple when your trip starts in Oakland.

Take a break from the shores of the Bay Area and let your adventurous side lead you to parts of the United States beyond California. While Oakland may boast Lake Merritt near downtown, why not visit the Great Lakes and the surrounding areas? From beautiful Midwestern towns and big cities, to creole culture along the Mississippi, there are plenty of beautiful locales and sparkling waterside destinations to see. Perhaps this is the chance you’ve been waiting for to trade tall redwoods for skyscrapers, or find out for yourself which coast is truly the best-coast. Wherever you’ve been itching to explore, count on Southwest to help you get there.

Go beyond the Bay with some help from Southwest Airlines. Whether you’re hoping to enjoy an entirely different climate or cultural experience, Southwest can take you there from Oakland International Airport. Explore places you can fly to and discover exciting trip add-ons from Southwest Airlines® Experiences —and save up Rapid Rewards® points. We make booking straightforward from flight selection, to checkout, to boarding. Learn more about what makes the Southwest® Experience special.
