October passenger traffic reports: Up at LAX, down at ONT

Traffic at L.A./Ontario International Airport east of Los Angeles fell again in October, with the airport attracting only 334,385 passengers, a decline of 9 percent from the same month the previous year. This continues a painful declines for the outlying airport, which has lost more than 40 percent of its traffic since 2007. And there’s not much hope, at least for the near term. 

But another airport operated by the city of Los Angeles – -Los Angeles International Airport — did much better. It processed 5,515,805 passengers in October, up 6.25 percent from Oct. 2012. Both international and domestic traffic rose. So far for the year, LAX traffic is up almost 5 percent compared to 2012.

Love data? Here are some links to the reports on both airports. Beware: Each is frighteningly detailed.
