Ontario Airport is located approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a medium-hub, full-service airport with direct commercial jet service to 15 major U.S. cities and connecting service to many domestic and international destinations. There are approximately 64 daily departures offered by 7 air carriers.
Last year, the City of Los Angeles, which has owned Ontario International Airport since 1985 and which managed its operations since 1967, relinquished title to the aerodrome, turning it over to the Ontario International Airport Authority, a local joint powers panel which is dominated by the City of Ontario.
Los Angeles World Airports, the corporate entity which runs Los Angeles International Airport and Van Nuys Airport, yet operates Ontario International Airport, but it is anticipated that by the end of the summer, fuller local control over it will be effectuated. lrts For more information about ONT, please visit www.flyOntario.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ONTAirport.
