Hub for air travel:

The Hayward Executive Airport plays a vital role in today’s regional transportation system. To help reduce airspace congestion, general aviation aircraft pilots are encouraged to use designated Reliever Airports such as Hayward instead of large commercial airports such as SFO, Oakland, and San Jose. This in turn helps reduce air traffic delays for airline passengers and gives general aviation pilots a facility dedicated to their needs.
