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.

NOTE: The latest news in the ongoing effort by ONT to rid itself of its current owner & operator (Los Angeles World Airports) revealed  that a trial date had been set for August 17, 2015, which was soon thereafter countered by a new motion filed by LAX, whereupon both parties returned to court April 8, 2015, where motion was denied. By mid-May 2015 at the State Assembly a 75-0 vote was passed to allow Ontario City to issue revenue bonds for financing the acquisition of Ontario Airport!  Stay tuned.....

Ontario International Airport has 3 passenger terminals.
