ONT marks sixth anniversary of local control

Ontario International Airport is marking its sixth year of local ownership this week, with much to celebrate.

More than 300 Inland Empire officials attended a state of the airport event Tuesday, the anniversary of Los Angeles World Airports handing over control of the airport to Ontario and San Bernardino County.

“Ontario International is more than an airport, it’s the heart of one of the fastest-growing population and economic centers in the U.S., providing a foundation for solid economic growth for years to come,” said Alan D. Wapner, president of the Ontario International Airport Authority’s board of commissioners, in a statement.

The airport pumps an estimated $3.8 billion annually into the Southern California economy, supports nearly 28,000 job and is the center of a logistics network that generates $17.8 billion in economic activity a year, according to a study by Oxford Economics, a global advisory firm.
