ONTARIO >> International passenger traffic continues to see a sizable growth at LA/Ontario International Airport, with one Mexican carrier adding a fourth flight to Guadalajara next month.

Domestic travel through ONT was essentially flat during April, up less than 1 percent.

According to April passenger figures released by Los Angeles World Airports on Friday, international traffic increased 74 percent from the same month in 2014. AeroMexico and Volaris, which offer 11 nonstop weekly flights to Mexico, served 11,714 passengers in April. Between January and April, international traffic rose 70 percent compared to the first four months in 2014.

Low-cost carrier Volaris will begin offering four weekly flights to Guadalajara in June and six weekly flights in July and August, said Jess Romo, ONT airport manager.

“We are pleased with the traveling public’s response to airline service offerings at ONT,” Romo said.
