San Bernardino County businesses benefit from three major airports: Ontario International Airport (ONT), San Bernardino International Airport (SBD), and Southern California Logistics Airport (VCV).

Ontario International Airport

ONT is a medium-hub, full-service airport with commercial jet service to major U.S. cities and through service to many international destinations. Located in the City of Ontario, approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, it is the second largest commercial airport in Southern California after the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

With more than 220 daily flights, ONT provides service to major cities in the U.S. Situated near the intersection of two major interstate highways, ONT is also at the center of a freight movement system that includes the airport, two railroads, four major freeways, and an expanding network of freight forwarders.

ONT is the United Parcel Service's (UPS) Western Region hub for both air and trucking operations within a 13-state region. In addition to serving intra-regional traffic, the hub links to UPS's global hub in Louisville and serves as an international gateway for UPS' cargo flights to and from China.

Southern California’s Ontario International Airport welcomes the start of Delta Atlanta flights

(Ontario, California – April 22, 2019) – Ontario International Airport (ONT) today welcomed Delta Air Lines flight 996 from Atlanta, marking the launch of daily, nonstop service between the Inland Empire and the carrier’s hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).

The arrival from Atlanta, the world’s busiest airport, was scheduled at 10:21 a.m. (PDT). The inaugural flight for ONT was scheduled to depart at 11:15 a.m. (PDT).

Atlanta is the 21st destination reachable by nonstop commercial service from Ontario.

Delta has also announced a second ONT-ATL roundtrip beginning June 17. The ONT-ATL route is served with Boeing 737-800/900 aircraft.

“We’re thrilled that our customers now can enjoy direct service to Atlanta, giving us another important nonstop destination on the East Coast,” said Mark Thorpe, Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). “We thank Delta for helping to make ONT the fastest-growing airport in the U.S.”

Delta, which is located in ONT’s Terminal 2, currently flies to Salt Lake City from Ontario three times a day.

Atlanta travelers will experience the recently completed multimillion-dollar upgrade of its dining and retail concessions featuring popular national brands and Southern California-based enterprises which cater to local tastes. Passengers can also access the Escape Lounge in Terminal 2, a premium lounge which began welcoming guests in January. In addition, app-based ride-hailing services including Uber and Lyft were added to ONT's ground transportation program last year.

San Bernardino International Airport

SBD is comprised of two separately governed joint powers authorities—the Inland Valley Development Agency (IVDA) and the San Bernardino International Airport Authority (SBIAA)∏—that oversee the redevelopment and reuse of the former Norton Air Force Base to civilian and commercial use. The overall objectives of both agencies are to replace the jobs lost in the community when the base closed, improve the infrastructure, landscape, and aesthetics of the local and surrounding areas, and promote economic and aviation related activities to increase the tax base of the region.

San Bernardino International Airport allows for Stage 2 aircraft and has over 60,000 annual flight operations comprised mainly of charter, corporate, and general aviation users. The Airport has recently completed a redesigned Passenger Terminal Facility in anticipation of future passenger airlines services.

Southern California Logistics Airport

VCV is a 2,500-acre world-class aviation and air cargo facility serving international and domestic needs. The airport can accommodate all current-flying commercial and military aircraft with 24-hour per day tower operation and emergency response capabilities comparable to the world’s largest airports.

The Southern California Logistics Airport offers 24/7 operations with onsite U.S. Customs. It has been designated a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ #243) and a Local Agency Military Base Recovery Act (LAMBRA) Zone by the federal government. The County is also planning two business expansion projects at this airport within the next 5 years that will expand its aircraft repair capabilities.

There are the six County-owned general aviation airports. They include:

Apple Valley Airport (APV)

Baker Airport (0O2)

Barstow-Daggett Airport (DAG)

Chino Airport (CNO)

Needles Airport (EED)
