ONT gets federal grant

Ontario International Airport has received a $10.7 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The aviation administration is giving out $518 million to airports nationwide through its 2022 Airport Improvements Program, with Ontario International getting the most of any Southern California airport, according to a statement on Ontario International’s website.

The money will pay for taxiway improvements and upgrades to the airport’s runway system. Less than one year ago, Ontario International used $12.6 million from the aviation administration and the American Rescue Plan Act to pay for taxiway and runway improvements.

“We’re grateful to the FAA for continuing to bring infrastructure and airfield improvement dollars to [Ontario International Airport],” said Alan D. Warner, president of the Ontario International Airport Authority’s board of commissioners, in the statement. “As the fastest-growing passenger airport in the United States, and one of the busiest cargo airports in the world, these investments in our runways and taxiways will help ensure the safest possible airport operations for years to come.”

Ontario International is a full-service airport. It offers nonstop flights to 33 major airports in the United States Mexico, Central America and Taiwan, according to the statement.
