Ontario International Airport

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is the fastest growing airport in the United States, according to Global Traveler, a leading publication for frequent fliers.

It is a full-service airport which, before the coronavirus pandemic, offered nonstop commercial jet service to 26 major airports in the U.S., Mexico and Taiwan. 

Increasingly favored by executives wishing to avoid the delays and congestion of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Ontario International Airport (ONT) is Southern California's most convenient, full-service airport with the newest terminals. With spacious, modern, passenger-friendly twin terminals, ONT is less congested and thereby more efficient – on the runways, at the gates and at the centralized car rental center – and thereby, a smart move for arrival and departure in Southern California.

Opened September 27, 1998, Ontario International Airport's $270 million twin terminals offer great convenience and services for passengers, while making a powerful design statement that places it in the forefront of modern airport architecture. In each of the 265,000 square-foot terminals, a vaulted, glass-enclosed terminal lobby serves as the focal point. The space is completely sky-lit; creating an open, modern feel that is welcoming to busy travelers and affords views of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains just north of Ontario.

The "twin terminal" approach shortens walking distances between parking lots and the terminals, and between aircraft gates and the ticketing and baggage claim areas. Each terminal is built on two levels, with ticketing and baggage claim on the ground floor, and aircraft gates and passenger services on the second level. The linear arrangement of airline gates creates the easiest traffic pattern for aircraft, minimizing potential for delays.

Nearby all that Southern California has to offer, ONT is a vibrant, growing airport developing impressively with daily nonstop flights to major U.S. cities and through service to many international destinations. ONT's service area includes a population of nearly 5 million business and leisure passengers living and working in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties and portions of north Orange County and east Los Angeles County. For the Greater Ontario area, ONT is easily 'closer to home' and the most convenient airport.
