ONT stayed strong in January

Ontario International Airport is off to an excellent start in 2024.

The airport accommodated nearly 470,000 passengers in January, including a record 45,012 International travelers, according to data released last week.

Total passenger volume during the first month of the year was 469,589, a 9.5 percent increase from January 2023. The domestic passenger count – 424,577 – was a 4.8 percent year-over-year increase.

“The new year began as last year ended, with growth in passenger volume remaining strong,” said Atif Elkadi, the Ontario International Airport Authority’s chief executive officer, in a statement.“ We are especially proud of the record-setting international passenger count since our mission is to be the international gateway of choice for Southern California.”

January was Ontario International’s 35th consecutive month of year-over-year passenger increases, Elkadi noted.

Air cargo – freight and mail – totaled 59,090 tons in January, a decline of nearly six percent from January 2023, the airport authority reported.
