(Ontario, California – April 13, 2023) – Southern California’s Ontario International Airport (ONT) has won four international awards, including two Gold Medals, for its “Why Ever You Travel” video showcasing the kind of positive passenger experiences that have made ONT the gateway of choice for millions of Southern Californians.
The one-minute video is designed around the theme, “Why ever you travel, wherever you go, leaving home should almost be as easy as coming back,” and features individuals and families as they prepare for a variety of different travel experiences.
The video received four NYX Awards, a prestigious international competition recognizing top work in marketing and communications. The ONT team received Gold awards for Video/Web-Based Production in the categories of Government and Cinematography/Videography. It also received Silver awards for Video/Web-based Production in the categories of Travel/Tourism and Writing/Script.
“‘Why Ever You Travel’ so beautifully captures why we work so hard to ensure that everyone who travels through Ontario International has the most positive experience they possibly can. Our passengers have always been our No. 1 priority, and I am so proud of our team for creating this award-winning video,” said Atif Elkadi, chief executive officer for the Ontario International Airport Authority.
Located in the heart of one of the fastest-growing population and economic centers in the U.S., ONT has become one of the industry’s great success stories. Passenger volumes in 2022 reached their highest level since 2008, years before the airport’s return to local ownership in 2016. Recently, the airport welcomed its 30 millionth passenger since that return to local control.
