Ontario International Airport expects increase in flights in July

Ontario International Airport (ONT) has announced it expects 44 daily departures in July, up from 37 in June and 24 in May, the company said.

July will be the third straight month airlines will restore flights to their schedules at the Southern California airport.

While the number of July flights is approximately 38% lower than July last year, it represents a significant improvement since April when the global coronavirus pandemic led to sudden and dramatic decreases in passenger volume of 90% or more at airports around the world.

Delta Air Lines is expected to resume nonstop service to its Atlanta hub.

All customers, visitors and employees must wear appropriate face coverings while at ONT and onboard flights. The airport continues to utilize enhanced safeguards to keep facilities clean and germ-free, including frequent sanitizing of high-touch surfaces with highly effective disinfectant and security screening trays treated with powerful antimicrobial technology. Passengers are also reminded to wash hands with soap and water frequently and use the many hand sanitizing stations that have been added throughout ONT terminals.

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is located approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a full-service airport which, before the coronavirus pandemic, offered nonstop commercial jet service to 26 major airports in the US, Mexico and Taiwan.
