  • Verticalsim Releases Ontario International Airport for X-Plane 12


    Verticalsim has released their detailed rendition of Ontario International Airport (KONT) for X-Plane 12, catering to the cities of San Bernardino, Riverside, and the Greater Los Angeles area. This airport handles an average of 5 million passengers annually.

    Ontario International Airport was initially established in 1941 as an Army Air Corps training and operations base. Post-World War II, it transitioned into a large storage, sales, and scrapping facility for Army Air Forces aircraft. In 1946, the airport's name changed from "Ontario Municipal Airport" to "Ontario International Airport" to reflect its role in outgoing trans-Pacific cargo flights. The same year marked the first international passenger flight, a Pacific Overseas Airlines service from Shanghai to Ontario, inaugurating round-trip air travel between the United States and the Orient. Western Airlines began operations in 1949, followed by Bonanza Air Lines in 1955.

    A new terminal was opened in 1998, replacing the old terminals which now serve administrative functions and the USO. The airport comprises 26 gates, with 12 in Terminal 2 and 14 in Terminal 4. Terminal 2 is home to Alaska Airlines, Avianca El Salvador, China Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue, United Airlines, and Volaris. Terminal 4 serves American Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Southwest.

    Ontario International is a significant cargo hub for FedEx and UPS Airlines, facilitating cargo transport across North America and Asia. Other cargo operators include Amazon Air, Ameriflight, Amerijet International, Asia Pacific Airlines, and Kalitta Air, making it the ninth-largest cargo airport in the United States.
