Ontario Airport Posts Third Straight Record-Breaking Month

Ontario International Airport (ONT) extended its record-setting pace with a total passenger count of more than 582,000 in July, surpassing the previous high reached a month earlier, airport officials announced. The popular gateway also recorded its highest number of international travelers in a single month, with more than 43,000.

The total passenger count of 582,575 in July was nearly 12% higher year-over-year. Record high passenger totals had been reached in each of the two previous months, with volumes of 559,447 in June and 556,933 in May. 

“The recent traveler data is stunning, to say the least, and reflects the strong sense of confidence among our airline partners and customers,” said Atif Elkadi, CEO, Ontario International Airport Authority.

Conversely, ONT air cargo volume continued to decline in July, consistent with a worldwide slowdown.
