The declining passenger traffic figures may be taking a toll on the tenants inside the twin terminals at LA/Ontario International Airport.
Councilman Alan Wapner this week spoke to a group of community and business leaders in Riverside in what was one of his most candid discussions regarding the airport.
Wapner was discussing the future of LA/Ontario International Airport with Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge. For more than an hour, Wapner talked and even joked about what it’s been like the past four years attempting to regain control of the struggling facility from Los Angeles World Airports.
He even joked about the newly formed Ontario International Airport Authority,which would manage the airport if Los Angeles turns over control.
“It’s kind of fun having an airport authority without having an airport. We have meetings, we talk about this airport we don’t have,” he said.
