How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Ontario
Travelers to Los Angeles have several options for airports to use. Los Angeles International Airport might be the largest, but more and more people who can choose a different airport are doing so because flying in and out of LAX is increasingly annoying (not to mention the traffic in and around the airport is dreadful). That is why LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) is more and more popular as another airport in the Los Angeles area. It is located two miles east of the central business district of Ontario, in San Bernadino County, and about 38 miles away from downtown Los Angeles. So, if your ultimate destination is, indeed, Los Angeles, Ontario might not be the airport you want to fly into. But if you are trying to avoid Los Angeles, this could be a good way to do it.
Forbes.com calls LA/Ontario International Airport one of the top five “alternative” airports in the US – making it a fine alternative to the overcrowded LAX. It also was the only Los Angeles-area airport to host the Concorde, and it is often used as an alternate landing site when weather conditions do not permit landing at LAX, because Ontario’s airport has especially long runways. Ontario’s airport is a hub for ExpressJet Airways and also happens to be a major point in the FedEx shipping chain.
