  • China Airlines is set to fully restore daily round-trip service between Ontario International Airport and Taipei, marking a major milestone in Ontario’s recovery of international air service.
  • The resumption of daily service comes at the same time that China Airlines marks its fifth anniversary at ONT, and will see the airline upgrade the aircraft operating the route to a larger Boeing 777-300ER, increasing seat capacity across premium business, premium economy, and economy classes.
  • With domestic air travel through ONT surpassing pre-pandemic levels in 2022, the resumption of daily international service is expected to further boost the airport’s growth as the fastest-growing airport in the United States.

Ontario International Airport in California has announced that China Airlines will fully restore daily round-trip service between Southern California’s Ontario International Airport (ONT) and Taipei beginning March 26, 2023. The resumption of daily service comes after a nearly three-year-long suspension of international air travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The return of daily service is a significant milestone in Ontario’s recovery of international air service. This development will connect Southern California’s Ontario International Airport with Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei. The resumption of daily service marks the fifth anniversary of China Airlines’ service at ONT.

The Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) announcement marks an exciting moment for residents of the Inland Empire, who have eagerly awaited the resumption of daily service between Ontario and Taiwan.

Demand for Long-Haul International Travel from the Inland Empire

Atif Elkadi, CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA), said, “This exciting development is a testament to the demand for long-haul international travel from the Inland Empire and the exceptional service provided by our global gateway.” The resumption of daily service occurs at the same time as China Airlines’ fifth anniversary at ONT.

China Airlines will upgrade the route from an Airbus A350-900 to a larger Boeing 777-300ER, increasing seat capacity from 306 to 358 across the premium business, economy, and economy classes. The service is also scheduled to provide customers with seamless one-stop connections to additional destinations throughout Asia.

ONT is the closest and most convenient international gateway airport for more than 10 million Southern California residents in San Bernardino, Riverside, northern Orange, and eastern Los Angeles counties. TPE is the primary international gateway to the north of Taiwan’s more than 9 million residents.

Domestic Air Travel Surpasses Pre-Pandemic Levels

Domestic air travel through ONT surpassed pre-pandemic levels in 2022, a milestone achieved by a few other airports in California. According to Global Traveler, a leading publication for frequent fliers, ONT is the fastest-growing airport in the United States.

The OIAA was formed in August 2012 by a Joint Powers Agreement between the City of Ontario and the County of San Bernardino to provide overall direction for the management, operations, development, and marketing of ONT for the benefit of the Southern California economy and the residents of the airport’s four-county catchment area.

Ontario International Airport (ONT)

Located in the Inland Empire, ONT is approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a full-service airport offering nonstop commercial jet service to more than two dozen major U.S., Mexico, Central America, and Taiwan airports.

The airport offers world-class amenities, including shopping and dining options, a pet relief area, and a nursing room. The airport is also known for its environmental sustainability initiatives, which include an on-site solar farm and a partnership with a local dairy farm to recycle food waste.

Conclusion

The resumption of daily service between Southern California’s Ontario International Airport and Taipei marks a significant milestone in the recovery of international air travel. The increased seat capacity and one-stop connections to additional destinations throughout Asia provided by China Airlines will help meet the demand for long-haul international travel from the Inland Empire. Ontario International Airport’s reputation as the fastest-growing airport in the United States will continue to attract more passengers and airlines in the future.
