Travelling via air must be smooth, from flight pre-boarding to arrival at the destination. However, some people can experience inconveniences such as long lines at ticket counters and security checkpoints.
These airport hassles are more common in top destinations such as the United States.
Main entry points such as the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) can become choke points for travelers, because of the sheer volume of arrivals and departures.
One way to avoid getting stuck for a significant amount of time at the LAX is to avoid it entirely, and opt for an alternative airport instead.
One international airport that can help provide seamless travel to and from America is the Ontario International Airport (ONT) in California.
Here are three ways how the ONT Airport can make a US trip easier:
1. Convenient check-in
Checking in at the airport is one of the most tiring parts of travelling. The long queues consume time that can otherwise be used to important tasks.
To make this more convenient, the ONT Airport has put up designated check-in counters and boarding gates in its Terminal 2. It also has accessible drop off and pick up area for passengers moving in and out of the airport.
2. Shorter transport security line
The medium-hub airport prides itself on its short transport security wait-time, which is estimated to be less than 10 minutes at the maximum. From there, the boarding gate is only a less than 5-minute walk.
Meanwhile, the time spent at the Arrival area up to the exit only takes seven to 30 minutes including the Custom Immigration and baggage pick-up.
The airport is also ready with an Automated Passport Control (APC) and Global Entry kiosks.
3. Close to Asian-populated areas
The airport is located approximately 35 miles east of Los Angeles, California.
It is few miles away from cities with dense Asian populations including Chino Hills, Rowland Heights, Hacienda Heights, West Covina, and Rancho Cucamonga.
It also near Walnut, California - one of the American cities with a significant Filipino population.
China Airlines, the official flag carrier of Taiwan, is the only and first airline company that caters international flights from ONT Airport to Asia and vice-versa.
China Airlines has been flying daily the Ontario, California-Taipei route to serve millions of residents in the area, especially Asians.
Filipinos who are planning a US trip can maximize the new route by going to Taipei and later fly to ONT Airport via China Airlines. This route can save them approximately 35-40% of the usual cost of a direct Manila to LAX flight.
China Airlines vows to have its passengers travel with comfort, more so by utilizing the modernized facilities of the ONT Airport.
