Ontario Airport CEO: Strong Sense of Confidence in California…
Commenting on the results was Atif Elkadi, the CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority:
“The recent traveler data is stunning to say the least and reflects the strong sense of confidence among our airline partners and customers”.
“While other airports in the region might struggle to regain their position in the market, we at Ontario International continue to deliver a world class, hassle-free experience to travelers both living in and visiting the fast-growing Inland Empire, and the air travel market is responding positively.”
In the first seven months of this year, the airport handled 3.5 million people overall, which is a positive increase of 12.3%.
Looking ahead, it is all positive for the airport as they will seek to end the Summer season on a high. Let’s see how that period goes for them moving forward.
