Southern California's Ontario International Airport earns recognition as Favorite Alternative Airport

ONTARIO, Calif: A leading travel publication has bestowed the honor of Favorite Alternative Airport to Southern California's Ontario International Airport.

In announcing winners of its 5th annual Trazee awards this week, the popular web publication Trazee Travel said ONT was chosen based on a survey of its readers between December 2018 and March 2019. In addition to recognizing airports, Trazees are awarded to favorite air carriers, airport dining and retail concessions, frequent-flyer programs and hotels, among other air travel-related categories. The online journal is targeted to travelers between the ages of 25 and 40.

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.
