Ontario International Airport Numbers Reflect “Gradual Recovery” Amid Pandemic


Ontario International Airport’s freight and passenger numbers are growing, reflecting a “gradual recovery” for the airport amid the pandemic. 

Commercial freight volume at the airport increased more than 20% in September while the number of air travelers rose to almost 200,000.

According to a press release, Ontario Airport representatives say these numbers reflect a “gradual recovery” for the airport in recent months.

Passenger volume there reached a low point in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s grown every month between May and September.

The airport also experienced a 22.5% gain in commercial freight volume in September, with shipments totaling more than 73,000 tons.

Ontario International Airport is considered the fastest-growing airport in the United States, according to airline publication Global Traveler.

Delta Air Lines began a twice-daily, nonstop service to Seattle from Ontario this month, and international carrier Volaris is planning a new service to Mexico City starting in November.
