LA/Ontario Airport records 1.81% rise in first half passenger traffic

The LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) in the US has handled nearly two million passengers during the last six months, marking an increase of 1.81% when compared with the same period in 2013.

The LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) in the US has handled nearly two million passengers during the last six months, marking an increase of 1.81% when compared with the same period in 2013.

During the first six months of the year, international passenger traffic increased by 65.3%.

The rise was driven by Volaris, a new Mexican carrier at the airport that started operating from ONT twice a week since mid-April. The company also plans to launch a third flight service at the airport in September this year.

"Carriers are flying more efficiently with higher load factors, which positively impact their bottom line."

The airport said that the passenger traffic has increased, despite a lower number of available seats.

ONT airport manager Jess Romo said: "We continue to see encouraging signs and we will watch the traffic numbers for the remainder of the year.

"June alone reflected an increase of more than 5.8%, when compared with June 2013. Carriers are flying more efficiently with higher load factors, which positively impact their bottom line."
