Ontario Airport Reaches New Monthly High for Passenger Volume

Ontario International Airport (ONT) welcomed nearly 557,000 passengers in May, the highest number in a single month since the airport returned to local ownership more than six years ago. The May total represents a nearly 7.3% annual increase overall. The number of domestic passengers grew by 4% to more than 522,000, while international air travel more than doubled to 34,310.

The previous single month high was reported in October 2022, when 541,000 passengers flew into or out of ONT. Year to date, the number of passengers increased by 13.2%, to 2.4 million overall.

“Ontario continues to set an example in the aviation industry as an airport that has not only recovered from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but is setting record highs in passenger volume,” said Atif Elkadi, CEO, Ontario International Airport Authority
