Taxiway Bravo Rehabilitation Project at OAK
Dates: Phase II, September 25-October 4 
More information: During this phase, the temporary Taxiway Bravo construction closure will likely result in approximately 40 to 50 daily corporate jet departures off North Field, as well as up to approximately 20 daily cargo jet departures off North Field. Most of the daily corporate jet departures will occur during daytime hours. Approximately half of the cargo jet departures, including FedEx, will occur during Quiet Hours (10pm-7am).

Fleet Week 2021
Dates: October 3-11
More information: Blue Angel operations are anticipated off the North Field during many of the times listed below so residents off the departure end of Runways 28L/28R will experience an increased level of noise. On arrival, Blue Angel aircraft typically perform a "carrier break," which generally brings the aircraft overhead of the airfield after which time they will initiate a descending 270 degree right turn towards the runway. Residents immediately north and east of the airport will experience an increased level of noise from these arrivals. 

Key Flight Activity Times (subject to change): 

  • Sunday, 10/3: 6pm Blue Angels arrival (North Field) 
  • Wednesday, 10/6: 10am-5pm Media flights (South Field, Main Runway)
