Oakland International Airport (OAK) and JetSuiteX announce commencement of new daily jet service between the heart of the Bay Area and Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport starting in mid-November. JetSuiteX will offer a private air travel experience to Bay Area travelers heading to or from the Los Angeles area, including Hollywood, Glendale, and Pasadena, with direct service operating from Signature Flight Support, which is based at OAK’s North Field.
“JetSuiteX was created to be the ultimate travel hack for time-starved travelers, especially those going between LA and the San Francisco Bay areas, who are tired of waiting in line after line, just to wait some more,” said Alex Wilcox, founder and CEO of JetSuiteX. “Our customers get to arrive refreshed when they skip things like spending more time in an airport than in the air, getting herded through lines or feeling the discomfort of boarding a plane with 100 other people.”
Bryant L. Francis, Director of Aviation at Oakland International Airport (OAK) said, “We are so pleased to welcome JetSuiteX to the growing list of options available to our customers. OAK is in the midst of an extended period of passenger traffic growth, made possible in large part by a significant increase in nonstop destinations served. Introducing new charter-style flight options at Oakland dovetails with our goal of offering more choices to the growing Bay Area customer base, many of whom live closest to OAK. We hope JetSuiteX’s new local service proves to be both popular and successful.”
Residents of Oakland, San Francisco, and surrounding Bay Area communities can jet between private terminals saving up to an hour on each end of their trips. JetSuiteX combines the benefits of the private ground experience – arriving just 15-20 minutes before departure and avoiding lines and baggage carousels – with scheduled service, affordable price, and by-the-seat booking of commercial air travel. JetSuiteX also services the greater San Francisco Bay region and other West Coast destinations, with flights operating at Concord/East Bay (CCR), San Jose (SJC), Burbank (BUR) and Las Vegas (LAS).
