NEWS: In August 2015, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) signed its ownership over to the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) - the future sole Operator of Ontario International Airport. In late 2015, the City council approved the settlement agreement, and the required OIAA & Senate approvals were received thereafter. In July 2016, President Obama signed legislation - bringing Ontario Airport one step closer to local ownership. In turn, LAWA is to get $120M in ONT passenger facilities charges, spread over the next ten years. (for reimbursing LAWA's expenses for terminal construction during the1990ies.) With the final OIAA ownership expected by October 2016, its 4-year battle with LAWA will come to an end.
