The Ontario International Airport has reported continued month over month increases in passenger and cargo volumes in November 2017. The airport has shown positive gains in both areas since it became locally controlled a little more than a year ago.
Frontier Airlines launched service to and from Ontario in October. November was its first full month of reporting and airport officials are confident this contributed to the airports inbound and outbound passenger traffic that increased to 410,000 passengers in November, a gain of by 8.5 percent over last November. Also, during the first 11 months of 2017, the airport welcomed 4.1 million customers—a 6.8 percent increase over the same period in 2016.
Although the increase in passenger growth has been great, the growth experienced at Ontario in air cargo, which includes freight and mail shipments through November 2017, has been remarkable. Growth in this area saw an actual improvement that was 15.5 percent higher than the same period in 2016.
