The Top 3 Reasons to Fly to ONT Instead of LAX or SNA

In the Guardian Jet Center lobby we often hear travellers and pilots share an idea that we’ve always known to be true: It is so much nicer to fly from (or to) here instead of LAX or SNA.

  • Ontario International Airport (ONT) is a public airport about 40 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles in Ontario, California.
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the largest international airport in California. It is located 18 miles southwest of Downtown Los Angeles.
  • John Wayne Airport (SNA), located in Santa Ana, is 40 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles.

But, why is it so much nicer to fly to/from ONT? Because it’s Quicker, Better, and Faster.


Time Is On Our Side

You can save 2+ hours flying into ONT versus LAX or SNA.

If you live in Southern California you know that everything said about bad traffic is true, particularly in Los Angeles and Orange County. The good news is, the traffic is considerably better 40 miles away here in Ontario. When comparing the traffic around LAX or SNA to the traffic around ONT… there’s no question. The traffic is always – ALWAYS – worse near LAX and SNA.

The traffic is often bad enough that even if you are in, or going to, Los Angeles – if that place is downtown or anywhere east of downtown you can get there faster by flying into ONT rather than LAX.


Simply The Best

You can say that claiming something is better, or the best, is subjective. But, we have reasons to say ONT is the best airport to fly to/from in the area.

24 Hours a Day 7 Days a Week - Unlike other Southern California Airports, ONT has NO noise restrictions. That means that you can arrive at or depart from ONT at any time, 24 hours a day.

Location, Location, Location - Ontario is 40 miles from Downtown LA, 35 miles from Disneyland, 40 miles from mountain resorts; we’re right in the middle of everything, making our spot in Southern California very convenient.

Customer Service - The Guardian Jet Center offers ample state of the art facilities and a professionally trained staff. Our top priority is great customer service.
