Air Freight at Ontario Airport Grows by Double Digits

Shipments of air freight continued to drive commercial activity at Ontario International Airport last month, growing by double-digits. Freight volume totaled more than 62,800 tons, up 14.3 percent from February 2020.

For the first two months of 2021, air freight totaled more than 133,000 tons, almost 15 percent higher than the same period in 2020. Mail shipments more than doubled to 6,400 tons.

“Our airport continues to be a bright reflection of the Inland Empire’s skilled labor force and vibrant economy in 2021, said Mark Thorpe, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority. “Despite the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on air travel and other sectors of the economy, freight shipments through Ontario continue to show tremendous strength and make the airport a focal point of Southern California’s goods movement industry.”
