ONTARIO — A Los Angeles World Airports official on Tuesday declined to comment on a lawsuit filed Monday by Ontario, but instead said her agency is gearing up to launch a new advertising campaign to attract travelers to LA/Ontario International Airport.

Ontario filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that LAWA has neglected and mismanaged the airport, and seeking to regain control of ONT. The 25-page complaint aims to dissolve the 1967 agreement that gave control of the airport to Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, LAWA officials said they haven’t reviewed the lawsuit and would not be able to discuss its contents.

“It has been our hope that instead of a divisive relationship, we would have a partnership with the city of Ontario, to the benefit of all,” said Maria Tesoro-Fermin, spokeswoman for LAWA.
