ONT ads hits the web

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying to connect with Jess Romo, general

manager at LA/Ontario International Airport, to get a better understanding about the new marketing plan at the medium-hub airport.

Here’s one story that I wrote briefly discussing the plan¬†and here is another one my colleague Brian Sumers wrote when the funds were approved.

One of the plans was to help airlines – who offer new service – with up to $150,000 in marketing funds. I haven’t seen any ONT-related ads from airlines (that I know of) but I have seen more ads from LAWA in recent weeks.

The campaign launched July 1 but I noticed ads promoting ONT days before that. Today, as I was perusing SigAlert.com I noticed the image above. When I clicked on the link it took me to LA/ONT – The Facts.

This is the first online ad I’ve seen for ONT that didn’t involve the SetONTFree folks.

The Facts link is something that LAWA created more than a year ago.

I’m not the only one who noticed ads, our editorial department weighed in on the issue.

Have you noticed the ad on the web before? Let me know.

    What ONT needs to do is replace the TSA with their own private security. I think enough people hate the crotch-grabbers enough they would pay whatever extra fare (if any) to use ONT rather than LAX.
