November 1, 2016, the LA/Ontario International Airport was returned to local control. The “LA” was dropped from the official name and has become the Ontario International Airport. Six years ago, a committee was formed to work through the transition which included a number of California State lawmakers. They were Bob Dutton, Gloria Negrete-McLeod, Norma Torres, Kevin Jeffries and Brian Nestande and Wilmer Amina Carter. The transfer celebration hosted numerous leaders and dignitaries including L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and legendary former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda.
