Ontario enjoys good growth in October

Ontario International Airport in California saw its commercial freight volumes grow by 4.6% year on year in October to reach a figure of more than 66,000 tons.

Over the first 10 months of 2019, Ontario’s freight volumes rose by 3.5% year on year, to more than 605,000 tons.

Mail shipment volumes, meanwhile, decreased almost 42% in October and by 23% on a year-to-date basis.

Ontario International is located approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in southern California. It is a full-service airport with non-stop commercial jet service to 22 major airports across the US, Mexico and Taiwan.

It has an average of 72 daily departures offered by nine air carriers.
