Los Angeles World Airports’ governing board has approved a resolution establishing the guidelines for the potential sale of L.A./Ontario International Airport to the city of Ontario.

The Board of Airport Commissioners agreed Monday to negotiate a letter of intent between LAWA and the Ontario International Airport Authority establishing terms that would result in LAWA divesting of ONT through a sale to OIAA. The board is asking that the deadline for the letter be no later than April 1.

The resolution includes ensuring that LAWA would not be financially responsible, that ONT would remain a commercial service airport, and that the sale would have a minimal impact on city employees. It also requests that the commissioners receive monthly updates on the process.

“The guiding concepts and principles are an initial road map for the terms of divesting ONT,” said Gina Marie Lindsey, LAWA’s executive director. “It’s a solid place to start.”
