Report recommends more flights for SJ, Oakland
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new report is now recommending that airlines add more flights in and out of Oakland and Mineta-San Jose International airports.
The Regional Airport Planning Committee says more flights are needed at those airports to handle the expected increase in passengers.
The committee projects the number of Bay Area airline passengers will soar to 101 million a year in 2035. By comparison, 58 million people used the big three airports last year.
The committee would also like to see more flights into Charles Shultz-Sonoma County Airport, in Santa Rosa as well.
