Ontario International Airport serves 5.1 million passengers per annum and passenger volumes have grown steadily but surely over the past few years. It’s the most convenient air hub for travelers from San Bernardino and Los Angeles Counties in Southern California’s Inland Empire region and its growth looks set to mirror that of this sprawling area.

Nestled 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles and bang in the center of SoCal, Ontario offers direct services to 18 destinations in Taiwan, Mexico and the US, with 64 daily departures from 8 carriers, including Alaska, Delta and China Airlines. It’s rated the No.1 fastest growing airport in the US by Global Traveler Magazine, has annual operating revenues of $70.6 million, is a hotspot for air freight and employs an army of thousands of staff — so it’s a major player in the regional and national economy.

It’s also recognized for progressive leadership — Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) President Alan Wapner was recently honored with a Leadership in Public Service Award by the Inland Empire Economic Partnership (IEEP).
