Ontario International Airport (IATA: ONT, ICAO: KONT) is located in Ontario, California. It is the second major international airport in the area, after Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Ontario International Airport is typically less crowded and easier to use than LAX; according to Forbes it is one of the five best alternate airports in America. It is the only major commercial airport to serve the fast growing Inland Empire region of California. The airport is the West Coast air and truck hub for UPS and is a major distribution point for FedEx.
It is located approximately 38 miles (61 km) east of Downtown Los Angeles. Drivers can either use the San Bernardino Freeway or the Pomona Freeway to access the airport. The airport is also served by local buses and by private shuttles. However, most passengers drive or are picked up at the airport.
Historically, Ontario has seen some rather interesting events. It was the only Los Angeles-area airport to see the Concorde supersonic aircraft as it made its promotion around the world flights. Also, the airport was originally built by one of the first flying clubs in southern California, The Friends of Ontario Airport, and dates back to 1923.
Recently, Ontario has been promoted as LA/Ontario International Airport in order to entice travelers from the already traffic-crammed Los Angeles International Airport.
It is really easy to get a flight anywhere and they have a great sweet shop in the airport.over 7 years ago
