"it's a ghost town"

(United States)

Red eye to Dallas on American. Easy drop off, but it's a ghost town. Absurd that you can't bring drinks or food through security. Every single vendor was closed. Hadn't flown out of Ontario in over ten years, I use LAX, SNA, and Long Beach. Don't see me using Ontario again any time soon.

"plenty of seating"

(Canada)

One of the easiest airports to access both inbound and outbound that we have ever experienced. Staff on the information desk in Terminal 4 were extremely pleasant and helpful when we asked for assistance. Public areas very clean and well kept. Plenty of seating for passengers. Great food outlets and some interesting local shops as well. A real treat to travel through this southern California airport.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United States)

Mixed feelings about this small airport. Easy check-in but the security line was extremely long. Over an hour waiting in line as they only had one station open. Limited services after security with some shops closed. Just seems like lots of wasted space. The airport is a good location if you are going to that area of Southern California. I've used this airport several times and it is usually fairly quiet but this last time and the security mess left me unsure about what all was going on.

Ontario Airport customer review

(Brazil)

Generally uncrowded. As noted not close to much of LA but we were visiting family in the Ontario area. Once outside the terminal confusing signage as to which of the islands in the airport road one need to go to for the consolidated rental car facility's shuttle van and if you pick the wrong one it's almost impossible to get from one island to the other with a cart so I had to go back to the terminal first (I'd imagine it'd be the same for a wheelchair). The shuttle was crowded and driver offered no help in loading bags (other passengers helped). We've always run into a very small variety of rental cars at this airport (even Burbank is better). But all in all at least less crowded and easier to use than LAX.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United States)

Food outlets were expensive but pretty much on par with other US airports. Security was a breeze and there were good views of the runways. Airport is not particularly close to the rest of the LA area so it's not surprising they are losing passengers. It was also impossible to get there using public transportation.

(Brazil)

Remains an easy to use airport facility but also one with limited facilities. Some of the limited number of stores and eateries appear to have closed or have very limited hours. No airline clubs. Traffic around the airport is almost non-existent. Lines for security can be very long or very short depending on the time of day. American Airlines for example has only morning departures.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United States)

A relatively quiet airport - there's even been talk of consolidating operations in its two main terminals into just one - and easy to access. Rental car facilities are consolidated in one location which is good (eg easy to shop among companies) but it does require use of a shuttle bus that can get crowded. There are no eating facilities outside of security and the choice inside security is pretty limited. No airline clubs at all. Lines for security were average.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United States)

I travel monthly for business and Ontario International is my airport of choice. Living in Southern California I have the choice of 4 major airports within an hours drive. Ontario is easy to get to modern and has fast security lines. I have only had a delayed flight once and it was mechanical. Luggage service is fast and efficient.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Arrival was straightforward and painless: my luggage was on the carousel within 10-15 minutes there was hardly any wait for the car rental shuttle and I was soon on my way. The return departure was less satisfactory. Because Delta's website would not let me check-in online I followed the instructions for airport check-in and arrived two hours in advance of the scheduled departure time (0410 for an 0610 departure). It was over an hour before any agents showed up to check me in by which time a long and irate queue had formed. All the other airlines were up running and checking pax in by 0430 but Delta was not and we were given no explanation for the delay. Of course by the time I was through security there was no time for any breakfast before the flight. And even if there had been there seemed to be only one airside place open serving breakfast and that had a queue to be seated. I would probably use ONT again as it is only 15 miles or so from where I stay regularly in California and the queues usually aren't anything like as bad as at LAX (especially to go through security) but this airport does seriously need to improve its customer service.

Ontario Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Situated some 60 minutes from LAX direct with access to the 10 freeway quite a good option for travel into California. The airport was taken over by LAX a few years ago but they are starting to limit the flights there and promoting their main airport. The airport was built to provide up to 20 million passengers a year but in fact only about 5 million will probably use the site this year. The airport is pretty laid back with not bad facilities check in is easy and collection of baggage quite straight forward. Word is that the local municipal will take over the running in the next couple of years this would see an injection to make the facilities more appealing. The first improvement needs to be to eating facilities. Car hire is a couple of minutes shuttle away. On site long term packing at $9 a day seems a bit expensive.
