Airfreight volumes continue to grow rapidly at Ontario International Airport with the second month in a row exceeding 20%.
The Californian airport saw airfreight grow by 26.6% year-on-year in April to 75,171 tons, following 22% growth in March to 70,221 tons.
Throughput for the first four months of 2020 increased by 16.5% to 261,449 tons, continuing strong growth since the City of Ontario and San Bernardino County assumed control of the airport in late 2016.
Mark Thorpe, CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority, said, “Ontario Airport continued to play a leading role in Southern California’s vast supply-chain network in April as the nation’s transportation industries responded to rapid changes in the coronavirus landscape. Over the past few years our airport has proved to be a primary driver for the regional economy and in the last two months it has shined under a bright national spotlight.”
