Ontario Airport Continues Double-Digit Gains in Passenger Counts

Ontario International Airport (ONT) continued to experience double-digit gains in passenger volumes in August, up 11% over August last year, airport officials announced recently. The airport welcomed more than 567,000 passengers last month including 527,000 domestic fliers, up 6% year-over-year, and 40,000 international travelers, nearly three times as many as a year ago.

Year-to-date, ONT surpassed 4 million total passengers, a 12% increase over the same period last year. The number of domestic travelers increased 8.7% to 3.8 million while international travel more than doubled to nearly 260,000.

“Demand for air travel through Ontario International remained strong in August and for the year, outpacing growth at other California airports, while consumer confidence in our facilities, services and amenities was equally strong,” said Atif Elkadi, CEO, Ontario International Airport Authority.
