Well regarded scenery developer Verticalsim has released their rendition of Ontario International Airport for XP12, bringing one of the West Coasts most important freight hubs to the platform.
Serving as the main gateway to the San Bernardino area in California, Ontario International Airport an international airport jointly operated by the city of Ontario and San Bernardino Country. The airport initially opened in 1923, and was then known as Latimer Field, named after an orange-packing factory located close by. During the 1940’s, the airport was expanded and received significant upgrades, including new runways, and during WWII, began serving as a training base for U.S. Army Air Corps P-38 Lightning and P-51 Mustangs.
Only in 1946 was the airport officially renamed to Ontario International Airport and began primarily serving commercial purposes. Today, the airport has two terminals, featuring 28 gates, and sees numerous domestic and international carriers operate to destinations across North and Central America and the Pacific, including Hawaiian Airlines to Honolulu, Volaris to Guadalajara and New Pacific Airlines to Nashville and Reno/Tahoe. The airport also serves as the West Coast air and truck hub for UPS and as major distribution hub for rival FedEx.
