Posted on: Tue, 01/22/2019 - 09:21

(Ontario, California – January 22, 2019) –Travelers flying out of Ontario International Airport (ONT) can now reserve on-site parking online, adding another measure of convenience at the nation’s fastest-growing airport. 

The innovative parking system, which is accessible through ONT’s website,, is designed to make the airport journey easier and more affordable for customers who drive themselves. 

Passengers are guided through four easy steps to book parking in advance, enter and exit parking facilities:

1.    Visit and enter a check-in and return date

2.    Choose a parking package based on the desired lot location and cost

3.    Submit payment online

4.    Scan an emailed barcode upon entry and exit to the parking lot

“The new parking feature is all about improving the airport experience,” said Mark Thorpe, chief executive officer of the Ontario International Airport Authority. “We recognize that our customers have choices, so it is critically important that we continue to add new services and amenities which make ONT even more convenient than other airports in Southern California.” 

Daily and valet parking are available through the online pre-payment system which tracks available spaces and identifies options where the greatest savings are available.

“Flights are booked in advance. Hotels are booked in advance. There is no reason for parking to be such a guessing game. This service removes the stress of wondering if there will be an affordable parking spot waiting for you,” said Martin Jones, president and CEO of MAG USA, developer of the online reservation system.

MAG USA is utilizing advanced bookings to enable dynamic pricing and yield management through the introduction of occupancy-based pricing techniques that share similar fundamentals with the airline and hotel industry. Their overall parking ecosystem is supported by a propriety business intelligence suite that enables in-depth data analytics through customized dashboards, reporting, visualization and forecasting tools all managed by the MAG team. 

Travelers will still have the option of paying for parking at the time they exit ONT using the existing system, but to qualify for special pricing they must book in advance online.
