During the first six months of the year, international passenger traffic increased by 65.3%.
The rise was driven by Volaris, a new Mexican carrier at the airport that started operating from ONT twice a week since mid-April.
The company also plans to launch a third flight service at the airport in September this year.
The airport said that the passenger traffic has increased, despite a lower number of available seats.
ONT airport manager Jess Romo said: “We continue to see encouraging signs and we will watch the traffic numbers for the remainder of the year.”
June alone reflected an increase of more than 5.8%, when compared with June 2013.
Carriers are flying more efficiently with higher load factors, which positively impact their bottom line.”
