Happy New Year at Ontario International Airport as passenger volume climbed nearly 15% in January

ONTARIO, CA, Feb. 18, 2020 — Southern California’s Ontario International Airport (ONT) welcomed more than 450,000 passengers in January, an increase of nearly 15% over the same month last year and the seventh straight month of double-digit gains for the nation’s fastest-growing airport.

“While many airports might experience a post-holiday slow down or simply have little or no room to grow, Ontario continued its run of strong, steady gains in January,” said Mark Thorpe, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). “Airlines and air travelers continue to show tremendous confidence in Ontario’s facilities, services and amenities, not to mention the first-rate, hassle-free customer experience we strive to provide every day.”

Ontario began 2020 with more than 454,000 arriving and departing passengers last month, a 14.7% increase over the 369,000 who used the airport in January a year ago. Domestic travelers totaled more than 423,000 while almost 31,000 were international passengers, nearly identical increases of 14.7%, respectively.
