LA Ontario ONT Airport Overview
ONT Airport is located in the town of Ontario, situated in 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 the Pomona Freeway (SR 60) .
With two long runways and an estimated 4 milion passengers going thru 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: Since 2007 passenger numbers have decreased by 30 percent and the Airport has long tried to sever ties with LAWA, the Los Angeles operator. The Westchester/ Playa del Rey Neighborhood Council endorsed back in 2011 a plan calling for the takeover of operations by an Inland Empire-based authority. However, LA World Airport is still in control. As of early December 2013, there are still ongoing talks.
Onario International Airport has 3 passenger terminals.
Present & future Airport developments: In April 2013 agreement was reached to grade separate North Vineyard Avenue & Union Pacific Railroad (immediately north of the Airport). The 5-year grade separation project is to ease up traffic to the airport by eliminating current delays caused by rail traffic.
