Ontario International Airport supports airport workers, business partners during coronavirus emergency

Ontario International Airport Authority has announced it has taken action to protect Ontario International Airport (ONT) customers and those who work in the airport, the company said.

ONT has enhanced efforts to keep facilities clean, by increasing the frequency and intensity of cleanings of restrooms and other public areas of passenger facilities. H

The company updated its sick leave and telecommuting policies to provide flexibility for employees and reassure any who might become ill or need to care for family at home. In the event an airport employee contracts the coronavirus, for example, the sick leave policy provides paid administrative leave for the duration of the illness.

The company is committed to collaborating with our air carriers, concessionaires and other business partners to adapt airport operations to the downturn in air travel which we are now seeing on a significant scale.

ONT will support airline and car rental partners in providing a limited amount of storage for aircraft and vehicles that are taken out of circulation as customer demand decreases. In addition, it is working closely with retail and dining concessionaires to adjust hours of operation in response to changes in airline schedules to ensure service is available for travelers when they are in airport terminals.

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.
