Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority: Allegiant to Begin Nonstop Memphis-Oakland Service May 30

Direct News Source

Allegiant announced that it will begin nonstop service between Memphis International Airport (MEM) and Oakland International Airport (OAK) starting May 30. The flight will run twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturday.

The flight is currently scheduled to be seasonal in nature, ending in mid-August, though strong demand could lead to a year-round service. Allegiant’s Memphis-Los Angeles route began as seasonal service in 2016 before being added as a year-round route last year.

This flight addition brings MEM’s total number of destinations to 35.

Allegiant now offers nonstop service to nine destinations at MEM, with Oakland joining Austin, Destin-Ft. Walton, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando/Sanford, Phoenix-Mesa, and St. Pete-Clearwater. Allegiant began operations at MEM in May 2015.

“This is an extremely positive development for MEM, as it adds another West Coast destination for our passengers,” said Pace Cooper, chairman of the board of commissioners for the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority. “We are thrilled that Allegiant has responded to our passenger demand with this Oakland route.”
