Oakland Airport Terminals

Oakland International Airport is divided into two terminals that are joined by a security area. Airport Drive, the road that circles around the parking garage in front of the terminals, provides curbside access to both terminals. The Oakland Airport Terminals Map shows the details.

Across from the terminals is a parking facility connected by pedestrian bridges. The Oakland International Airport BART Station is just above the parking garage and provides access to downtown Oakland and San Francisco.

Terminal 1 is located on the airport's west side and houses the bulk of airlines operating international and domestic flights. The terminal is divided into two levels, with baggage claim on the lower level and ticket counters and the security checkpoint on the higher level.

Southwest Airlines uses Terminal 2 only for domestic flights. The terminal is divided into two levels: baggage claim, check-in counters, and a security checkpoint on the bottom and the departure gates on the upper level.

How to get around the Oakland Airport Terminals

Passengers can freely move between terminals within and beyond the restricted zone, thanks to how close the terminals are. There is a connection between gates 4 and 20 inside the security area, and the walkway may be found outside the terminal buildings.
