ONT completes three straight years of passenger increases

Ontario International Airport stayed hot in February, as its streak of year-over-year passenger increases reached 36 months.

Passenger traffic grew nine percent during the second month of this year compared with February 2022, as the airport accommodated 413,413 domestic and 36,480 international fliers, according to data released Monday by the Ontario International Airport Authority.

Those were increases of 5.7 percent and 68.3 percent, respectively.

In January and February, Ontario International’s passenger count went up 9.2 percent to more than 919,000. Domestic travelers rose 5.2 percent and international passengers were up nearly 80 percent more than that.

“February proved to be another positive month for Ontario International as we extended our streak of consecutive months with higher passenger volume,” said Atif Elkadi, the airport authority’s chief executive officer, in the statement.

Freight shipments increased by more than four percent year-over-year in February, and were up slightly during the first two months of the year, the authority reported.
