On the evening of March 25th, as passengers prepared to board China Airlines flight 23 at Ontario International Airport, champagne confetti corks popped in celebration of the carrier's first anniversary of operations at Ontario International Airport.

One year ago to the day, the airline launched the daily roundtrip service between Ontario (ONT) and Taiwan (TPE). This is the only transpacific service from a Southern California airport other than Los Angeles International (LAX). 

"The airline's commitment to Ontario is a strong show of confidence in all we are doing to develop a first-rate international gateway with the services travelers demand, not to mention creating an economic driver for the region," said Curt Hagman, commissioner of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). 

China Airlines has carried approximately 175,000 passengers between Ontario and Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport since last March, more than 14,000 air travelers per month on average.

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is the fastest growing airport in the United States, according to Global Traveler, a leading publication for frequent fliers. Located in the Inland Empire, ONT is approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a full-service airport with nonstop commercial jet service to 19 major airports in the U.S., Mexico and Taiwan, and connecting service to many domestic and international destinations. There is an average of 67 daily departures offered by nine air carriers.

County leads trade mission to South Korea

The San Bernardino County will lead local business leaders on a mission to South Korea in April to expand trade and investment opportunities for the county's investors.

South Korea is California's sixth largest export destination. In 2017, California exported more than $9.6 billion to South Korea, making California the top U.S. exporting state to South Korea.

"The mission is a tremendous opportunity for businesses in our county to grow their exports and foster international trade. By doing so, we ultimately enhance the performance of businesses here at home and drive job creation in the county," said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. "Supervisor Robert Lovingood and I are looking forward to working with the county's business community in face-to-face meetings with our government and private-sector counterparts in South Korea."

San Bernardino County companies in all industry sectors will be invited to participate in this trade mission. Participating companies will have one-on-one, pre-qualified appointments targeted to their objectives, whether that is developing or expanding direct export sales, locating distributors or agents, or conducting market research, among other goals.

The mission will also enhance relationships between San Bernardino County and South Korea in order to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to the County. South Korean FDI into the United States has more than doubled in recent years, increasing from $19.9 billion in 2011 to $40.9 billion in 2016.
