The airport has grown in popularity in the past decade and now handles around 11 million passengers a year.

The reason given for its rise in popularity as an alternative to San Fransisco International is that it has a very high score in on-time arrivals. The Airport is popular with several airlines. Southwest Airlines uses it as a crew base. Most popular airlines to be found at Oakland Airport are Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, and Jetblue Airways. The ever increasing popularity of the low cost carrier has meant that Oakland Airport has become the fastest growing airport in the USA.

The airport has two terminals for passengers that are conveniently connected by a walkway. Terminal 1 is currently renovated in a massive $200 million upgrade. The terminal is still in use during this refurbishment and has 17 gates. Terminal 2 has recently been upgraded in a $300 million improvement and expansion and now has 13 gates which are all allocated to Southwest Airlines.
