Ontario International Airport continues to show signs of a steady recovery since hitting a pandemic low in April.
The airport’s October numbers showed a sixth straight month of increased passenger traffic, but total traveler volume is still 56 percent lower than in 2019. This steady recovery puts the airport in the lead among California airports. A full recovery is not expected to happen for another year or more.
October also saw the airport’s cargo growth remain strong with a continued trend of a 20 percent year-over-year increase. In a press release, airport CEO Mark Thorpe said this is a sign the airport will remain at the forefront of economic activity as the Inland Empire consumer base grows and the economy recovers.
