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: From 2008 through 2013, passenger numbers degreased by 46 percent - which ONT blamed on its ties to the LA operator.  In the ongoing battle over Ontario Aiport wanting to sever ties with its Los Angeles-based 'LA World Airport' - in February 2014 a lawsuit over ONT control moved forward - no further news regarding the same were available - however, LA's mayor now agrees that Ontario Airport should get its own-choice operator. The good news are that  passenger volume increased in 2014.  Update: 
The latest news in the ongoing effort to rid itself of its current owner & operator (Los Angeles World Airports) is that a trial date has been set for August 17, 2015, which was soon theafter countered by a new motion filed, whereupon both parties are to return to court April 8, 2015 ...... stay tuned!

Ontario International Airport has 3 passenger terminals.
