LA Ontario ONT Airport Overview

Ontario International Airport ONT serves California's San Bernardino & Riverside counties, as well as portions of north Orange and east Los Angeles counties - an area with over six million residents.  The Airport is medium-hub - particularly favored by executives wishing to avoid the delays and congestion of Los Angeles' LAX Airport. It also has less congestion on the runways, at the gates and at the centralized rental car center, and due to its long runways, it is often used as an alternate landing site for large aircraft when LAX is inaccessible as a result of weather conditions or other reasons.

ONT Airport is located in the town of Ontario, situated at the west end of San Bernardino County, and is only 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. It is accessible via three freeways:  the San Bernardino  (I-10), the Ontario (I-15) and new I-215 (San Bernardino to Riverside), and the Pomona Freeway (SR 60) .

With two long runways and an estimated 4 milion passengers going through its gates each year, Ontario International Airport is served by major U.S. airlines and by Aeromexico, offering direct flights throughout the U.S. & Mexico, with connections to all parts of the globe.

Ontario International Airport has 3 passenger terminals,

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.
