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 operating schedule currently provides the following flights:
LF 3201 / CEC to OAK / Departs 7:00 AM and Arrives 8:10 AM - Available Daily
LF 3202** / OAK to CEC / Departs 5:30 PM and Arrives 6:45 PM - Available Daily
**Please note that LF 3202 will become LF 3204 starting April 15th, 2022
Contour Airlines now has an airline interline agreement in place with American Airlines. This partnership allows for hassle free travel from CEC to any market in the world served by Contour or American. To take advantage of this simply visit ContourAirlines.com or AA.com and book your ticket. Please note, due to COVID-19 American Airlines is not presently serving OAK (as of April 2021) however it is anticipated that American will resume service at OAK in the near future.
