We are grateful to Trazee Travel and its readers for this high honor, said Alan D. Wapner, President of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). It is recognition that we are on track with our plan to develop a first-rate international aviation gateway for Southern California, free of the congestion and frustration that often diminishes the customer experience at larger airports.
Said Jim Bowman, OIAA Commissioner, The Trazee honor tells us that air travelers will reward airports like Ontario that are easy to reach by public and private transportation, have ample parking, stress-free security screening, spacious and comfortable passenger terminals, not to mention an array of amenities, dining and shopping options that appeal to business and leisure travelers. Such attractive features help to produce the first-rate, hassle-free customer experience that has become our hallmark.
The award is the latest significant recognition for Ontario International - the nation's fastest-growing airport and the No. 1 airport for outgoing cargo. Since its return to local control in late 2016, ONT has re-emerged as a transportation hub and economic driver for one of the fastest-growing population centers in the United States.
ONT now offers non-stop service to 21 domestic and international destinations. It recently completed an $8 million upgrade of its food, beverage and retail concessions. Premium lounges which are accessible to all travelers are located in each of ONT's passenger terminals.
