Ontario International Airport sees slight drop in air cargo shipments

Ontario International Airport in California experienced a marginal decline in air cargo shipments during January, with figures showing a decrease of less than 6% compared to the same period last year.

Commercial freight, totaling 56,429 tons, experienced a modest drop of just 3.3%.

The minor decrease in air cargo activity at the Ontario International Airport contrasts with broader trends in the industry, indicating relative resilience in the face of economic fluctuations and logistical challenges.

Despite global uncertainties, the airport continues to serve as a vital hub for cargo operations, facilitating the movement of goods and supporting regional trade networks.

Atif Elkadi, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) said: “We are optimistic about Ontario’s prospects for even higher passenger volumes this year and the recovery of the global air cargo market.”
