Ontario International Airport adjusts April outlook based on reduction in flights

Ontario International Airport (ONT) officials have announced an adjustment in airport operations and services to reflect reduced passenger flight schedules in April as a result of the coronavirus, the company said.

According to airline schedules published for April, passenger flights at ONT will be reduced by one-third, from 66 daily departures to 46, compared to March given declining demand for commercial air travel. As a result, passenger volumes will be reduced significantly while safe-at-home orders remain in place in states, counties and cities across the US.

While airlines operating at ONT intend to reduce the number of flights to and from the airport, they plan to maintain service to all nonstop destinations with the exceptions of Houston Intercontinental (United Airlines) and Taiwan (China Airlines). Both passenger terminals will remain open during all hours of flight activity and Transportation Security Officers will continue to provide security screening.

Airport food, beverage and retail concessionaires will adjust operating hours appropriate to the scheduled flights.

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is located in the Inland Empire, approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a full-service airport with nonstop commercial jet service to 26 major airports in the US, Mexico and Taiwan, and connecting service to many domestic and international destinations. There is an average of 72 daily departures offered by nine air carriers.
