IFATC Stay at Home - KONT Ontario International Airport


One of the United State’s busiest cargo airports, Ontario, a hub for UPS, is located 38 miles from Downtown Los Angeles. With international service to Mexico as well as China Airlines service to Taipei, Ontario is another one of those “unknown” SoCal airports.

Thanks to Ontario’s long runways (runway 8L/26R is longer than three of the four runways at LAX), it is often an alternate landing site for large aircraft destined for LAX. Due to Ontario’s small customs facilities and limited connecting flights, such flights typically do not disembark passengers at Ontario. Diverted aircraft are typically refueled before continuing on to LAX.
