USA. Southern California’s Ontario International Airport served 476,000 passengers in April, +6.9% higher than the same month in 2019. That represents the second consecutive month of improvement on pre-pandemic levels.
Domestic traffic increased by +9.6% to over 461,000.
In the first four months of this year, total passenger volume exceeded 1.62 million, within a percentage point of the total from January-April 2019. Domestic passenger volume was 1.57 million, a +1.6% increase.
Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) Board of Commissioners President Alan D. Wapner said: “Demand for air travel through Ontario International remained strong in April as passengers took to the airways for spring break vacations and to visit friends and family for religious holidays.”
He added: “Ontario International was rapidly growing before the COVID-19 pandemic, so it is not a surprise that we’re among the quickest to recover.”
As reported, Ontario International Airport this week issued a Request for Proposals for food & beverage and retail (excluding duty free) concessions across the location. The opportunities encompass all existing Delaware North outlets and remaining vacant outlets in Terminals 2 and 4.
