Commercial service at CEC is made possible by the Essential Air Service (EAS) program administered by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT). Currently, CEC receives a grant from the DOT under the Alternate EAS program. After public input, the Border Coast Regional Airport Authority elected to use this grant to enter into an agreement with Contour Airlines to provide commercial service at CEC with daily flights to and from Oakland International Airport (OAK).
Contour's normal, operating schedule, provides the following flights daily, seven days a week:
LF 3201 / CEC to OAK / Departs at 7:00 AM / Arrives at 8:10 AM
LF 3202 / OAK to CEC / Departs at 5:30 PM / Arrives at 6:45 PM
Beginning May 14th, in addition to the normal daily flights, the following flights will be added for the summer months:
LF 3203 / CEC to OAK / Departs at 2:00 PM / Arrives at 3:10 PM - Fridays and Sundays
LF 3204 / OAK to CEC / Departs at 11:55 AM / Arrives at 1:10 PM - Fridays and Sundays
and, around summer holidays, on the following dates:
LF 3203 / CEC to OAK / Departs at 2:00 PM / Arrives at 3:10 PM - May 31/July 5/September 6
LF 3204 / OAK to CEC / Departs at 11:55 AM / Arrives at 1:10 PM - May 31/July 5/September 6
