ONT Program Opens Amenities to Non-Traveling Public

ONTOntario International Airport (ONT) has launched ONT+, a free service that enables non-traveling guests to secure an online visitor pass, which they can be used to enter TSA checkpoints and access the post-security side of the passenger terminal.

The program will let the non-traveling public greet families and friends at the gate, or spend more time with them as they prepare to depart, all while enjoying the airport’s shops, restaurants and other amenities.

“We all remember the excitement of being able to meet arriving family and friends as they get off the plane. ONT+ is a way to bring back some of that experience from decades ago, in a safe and secure manner,” said Dean Brown, ONT public safety administrator, who worked closely with TSA in establishing the program.

ONT+ also opens up the many dining and retail establishments located in the terminal’s upper levels to the non-traveling public. To receive an ONT+ visitor pass, non-travelers can visit www.flyontario.com/ontplus and fill out an online application within seven days of their visit. If approved, visitors will receive an ONT+ Visitor Pass via e-mail.
