The DVC Buzz – Commercial flights out of Concord’s Buchanan Airport

Madeline Berry and Allison Roullier

The Buzz: Commercial flights are being offered from Concord’s Buchanan Airport to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank and Las Vegas, Nevada launching at the end of April, would you use them?

For the first time since 1992, commercial jets will be flying out of Concord’s Buchanan Airport three times a day, beginning April 19. JetSuite will be making these flights possible. Planes are small and hold around 30 passengers, but the seats are comparable to larger planes. Also, free snacks and drinks are provided. Flights will cost just north of $100 each way, but may increase with demand. This video was based on interviews taken on the Diablo Valley College campus in Pleasant Hill, on April 12, 2016.
