Attachment 2 Ontario Airport Use and Lease Agreement



The Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is seeking consultant services to
prepare a
comprehensive Master Plan and Environmental Impact Analysis for the Ontario
International Airport (ONT) located in the city of Ontario, San Bernardino
California. The purpose of this master plan is to provide a guide for the
development of
Ontario International Airport over the next 20 to 25 years.


Ontario International Airport (ONT) is a medium-hub, full-service airport
with commercial
jet service to major U.S. cities, international service to Mexico and
through service to
many other U.S. and international destinations. ONT is located in San
County, California approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in
the center of
Southern California. ONT is an integral part of a regional system of
airports that serves
passengers and cargo in the five county Los Angeles area. The airport’s
service area
includes a large and growing population living in San Bernardino and
Counties, portions of north Orange County and east Los Angeles County.
Although within the City of Ontario, the airport is owned and operated by
Los Angeles
World Airports (LAWA). LAWA is a self supporting (proprietary) department of
the City of
Los Angeles which also owns and operates Los Angeles International Airport
(LAX), Van
Nuys Municipal Airport (VNY) and Palmdale Regional Airport (PMD).
In 2000, ONT served nearly 6.8 million annual passengers, 511,000 tons of
cargo, and
155,500 aircraft operations. The airport is served by ten domestic scheduled
commercial carriers including Southwest, United, Delta, Alaska, America
American, Northwest, and Continental. Commuter service is provided by United
Express. Aeromexico provides international service to Mexico. Six cargo
carriers serve
ONT. United Parcel Service operates a central sorting facility at the
airport and is
responsible for about 75% of the freight. The airport encompasses just under

A new passenger terminal complex was completed and opened in 1998. The $270
million project included two new 265,000 square foot passenger terminals, a
ground transportation center, new short term parking, a new roadway access
airfield improvements, and landscaping. The new terminals are eight times
larger than
the former terminal and can accommodate up to 10 million passengers a year.
has been reserved in the new terminal complex for a third terminal which may
constructed by agreement with the airlines when passenger traffic at ONT
reaches 10
million for two consecutive years.


The objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive master plan for
International Airport which will:

• Define a role for the airport in a regional context and identify the
demand the airport can serve
• Provide a long term strategy for the development and expansion of the
• Provide a context for short term decisions regarding the use of property
• Provide a plan to mitigate adverse impacts of airport operations on the
community and environment.
• Provide a financial plan for the airport to enable implementation of the

B. Tasks

a) Schedule, Budget, Scope of Services: Develop a final scope of work to
complete the project along with a timeline and budget by task.

b) Project Management and Coordination: Set up communication standards.
Identify requirements and opportunities for coordination within LAWA and
other government agencies, stakeholders and the public. Establish protocols
coordination among consultants.

c) Establish Planning Goals And Objectives: Work with LAWA, airport, state,
local and federal agencies and public stakeholders to develop goals and
objectives for the master plan.

d) Evaluate Existing Conditions: Evaluate existing conditions by collecting
available documentation, conducting an inventory of facilities and operating
conditions, and developing maps and layout plans as CAD drawings. A
thorough assessment of facilities and operating conditions must include the
following elements:

 Airspace and ATC conditions
 Air traffic activity
 Airport service area socioeconomic data
 Land use
 Environmental baseline conditions including noise and air quality
 Financial conditions
 Airport administration and management structure
 Passenger terminals

 Airport administration, operations, safety and maintenance facilities

e) Forecast Aviation Activity: Forecast aviation activity for ONT taking
account the regional context in which it operates. Alternate forecasts will
expected which reflect different assumptions for the regional context,
indicators and aviation industry trends. A thorough market area and
opportunities analysis will be expected for both passenger and cargo
activity. The
forecasts will be developed both for an annual average and for a planning
day (Example: average day peak month). The forecast methodology and
assumptions must be clearly defined and agreed on. Forecasts will include

 Air carrier passengers (domestic and international)
 Commuter passengers
 Enplaned and deplaned domestic and international air freight and air mail
tonnage carried by air cargo aircraft and passenger aircraft as belly cargo.
 Operations (scheduled passenger air carrier, charter passenger, scheduled
commuter, unscheduled air taxi, all-cargo, general aviation, military)
 Based general aviation aircraft
 Fleet mix in sufficient detail for airfield and airspace modeling, noise
and air quality modeling
f) Establish Airport Facility Requirements: Identify airport facilities that
will be
required to accommodate future aviation activity. Facility requirements will
identified in terms of the following general requirements:
 Land requirements
 Airfield and airspace requirements
 Passenger terminal space in terms of both overall building square footage
and in terms of space required for general functional elements (gate area,
concessions, circulation space, ticketing).
 Number of passenger aircraft gates and size of aircraft parking apron.
 Public and employee parking
 Terminal roadways and curbside
 Regional and local ground access/transit facilities
 Rental car facilities
 Air cargo terminal and aircraft apron requirements
 Airport and airline support facility requirements
 Fuel storage
 Airport administration, operations, safety and maintenance facility
 Aircraft rescue and fire fighting facility requirements
 Airport traffic control tower requirements
 General aviation facility requirements
 Aircraft maintenance facility requirements

g) Master Plan Concept Development: Develop three to five alternative
development plans to accommodate the facility requirements and forecasts of
activity identified. Concepts will include proposed airside and airfield
development options, passenger and cargo terminal development and
options, ground access improvements, non-aviation uses, and operational
improvements. This task will include the development of drawings showing the
locations of all proposed facilities and general land use options.

h) Transportation Analysis and Modeling: Ground access to ONT will be
for both passengers and freight in a comprehensive approach that will
include a
thorough analysis of the existing transportation system serving the airport,
forecasts of future traffic volumes and the analysis of transportation
impacts of
the proposed alternatives. A computer simulation model will be used for the
analysis that is compatible with and integrated into local and regional
transportation planning models. The San Bernardino Associated Governments is
currently using TRANPLAN for their Comprehensive Transportation Plan in the
area. The analysis will cover the highway and transit system linking the
airport to
regional centers and the surface street system surrounding the airport,
detailed intersection analysis where necessary. A Transportation Improvement
and Mitigation Program will be developed that will describe feasible
improvements to the transportation infrastructure and a demand management
plan capable of reducing the ground access demand.

i) Environmental Impact Analysis: An environmental impact analysis will be
performed for each selected alternative plan. The consultant shall document
environmental conditions and impacts, perform all environmental analysis and
recommend mitigations. The environmental analysis will use accepted
methodologies and contain sufficient detail to satisfy the requirements of
Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Impact Statement (if
The results of the environmental analysis will be incorporated into the
project EIR
and EIS (if required). The environmental impact analysis will include the

 Aircraft noise and compatible land use

 Environmental justice
 Cumulative impacts

j) Airspace and Airfield Modeling: An analysis of the existing and future
and airfield operational conditions will be done through the use of an
accepted computer simulation model(s) capable of measuring differences
between the alternative plans in terms of operational efficiency, capacity
delay. The evaluation of airspace capacity will be essential to
understanding the
role that ONT can play in satisfying regional demand.

k) Evaluate Alternative Plans and Select Preferred Alternative: An
will be selected that best meets the planning goals and objectives
early in the master planning process. Each alternative will be evaluated
criteria based on these goals and objectives. The Aviation Demand Forecasts,
Environmental Analysis, Transportation Analysis, and Airfield and Airspace

Modeling will provide the basis for evaluating the alternatives. The
criteria may include:

 Capability to accommodate passenger and cargo demand
 Environmental impact as identified during environmental analysis
 Transportation impacts and feasible mitigation
 Airfield safety and efficiency measures (airfield and airspace delay,
operational safety, capacity limitations)
 Overall development costs and funding availability
 Regional air service goals
 Institutional feasibility
 Local community impacts (economic development opportunities)

l) Development of Proposed ONT Master Plan: Develop a proposed Master
Plan based on the preferred alternative. Included in the Master Plan will

 Airport layout drawings required for the ALP
 Land use plan
 Airport Facility Development/Capital Improvement Program
 Transportation Improvement and Mitigation Program
 Development Phasing Plan
 Environmental Mitigation Program
 Preliminary cost estimate for proposed improvement program
 Financial Implementation Plan

m) Prepare Environmental Impact Documentation: Prepare environmental
documentation meeting the requirements of the California Environmental
Act (CEQA) for the proposed plan and each alternative. The need for an EIS
other federal environmental action in compliance with NEPA will be dependent
on the project proposed. Should the project require an EIS or other federal
environmental action, the environmental documentation will be prepared in
conjunction with the FAA and meet both state and federal requirements. The
document should be designed to serve as the master environmental
documentation for the future airport development projects planned within the
cycle of the ONT Master Plan. The environmental documentation must be
adequately detailed to provide environmental clearance for implementation of
initial phase of the Master Plan. In addition to the EIR/EIS, the consultant
prepare a mitigation monitoring plan as required under CEQA. The preparation
of the EIR will involve the following tasks:

 Scoping process
 Public consultation
 Notice of Preparation
 Technical studies not performed in environmental impact assessment task.
 Definition of criteria for significance of impacts
 Administrative Draft EIR
 Draft EIR
 Response to comments
 Final EIR

C. Master Planning Issues
The following particular issues and concerns will be considered as part of
the master
planning process:

a) Regional Issues: The ONT master plan must create a plan for ONT that
defines the airport’s role in the region over the next 20-25 years. The
California Association of Governments has developed a Regional
Plan that assigns passenger and cargo volumes to the airports in the region
assumes a major redistribution of air traffic demand from LAX to ONT and a
El Toro Airport. The master plan must provide guidance as to the most
reasonable role for ONT and the feasibility of attracting passengers and
from outside the current market area.

b) Air Cargo: Air cargo is very important to the success of ONT. Currently,
serves as a major sorting center for UPS. It is important that the master
examine the regional role that ONT should play in satisfying air cargo
and what advantages the airport may have by its unique geographic location.
Facility development that might position the airport to take advantage of
opportunities to interface with trucking and rail systems such as the
Corridor East project will be considered.

c) Balanced Air Cargo and Passenger Terminal Development: Examine the
need and the best site for additional air cargo terminal space to
belly cargo connected with passenger operations.

d) International Passenger Operations: Assess the potential for ONT to serve
share of the international passenger demand in the region. Develop facility
requirements and a preliminary design for a new FIS facility to be
integrated into
existing or future passenger terminals.

e) General Aviation: The need to expand the size and number of FBOs and
facilities and services for general aviation will be examined. Forecasts of
aircraft and GA operations and fleet will be needed.

f) Non-Aviation Commercial Activity: LAWA has purchased land surrounding the
airport to act as a buffer and preserve the airport’s options for expansion.
and long term use of vacant and underutilized land for non-aviation
and industrial development will be examined along with the requirements
necessary to obtain an FAA release for non-aviation use of land.

g) Reuse of Vacated Lockheed Facilities: ONT has a large area of old
and facilities that were occupied by Lockheed Corporation and are now
property. The reuse of this area has been studied and some sketch plans for
of the area have been developed. This work will be integrated into the
plan study. This area also has significant environmental cleanup issues that
to be addressed.

h) Truck Traffic Impacts: The impact of truck traffic associated with a
buildup of
cargo operations and particularly the development of cargo facilities on the
side of the airport is a concern of the local community. Any plan to
accommodate increased cargo volumes must address the impact of truck trips
associated with the new facilities. A mitigation plan will be developed.

i) Airfield Development: The need for a third runway and other airfield
improvements and capacity enhancements at ONT will be examined. The
master plan will assess the feasibility of adding a new runway, and if found
feasible, the location, alignment, and timing of its development will be

j) Airline Approval: The Ontario Airport Use and Lease Agreement between
LAWA and the airlines controls issues such as the use of gates and terminal
areas, charges and fees, capital improvements, new terminal development,
signage, noise and air quality through 2024. This agreement contains a
In-Interest clause that requires airline approval for all capital projects
$250,000. The restrictions of this agreement and the need for airline
must be considered in the development of the plan. A copy of the agreement
included in this document as Attachment 2.

k) Financing: ONT has a “residual” financial operating structure which
airport revenue in determining terminal rental rates and landing fees. This
agreement will affect the financing of major capital improvements (see
Attachment 2).

l) LAWA Facilities: The facility requirements and development of new
for LAWA administrative, safety, operations and maintenance staff at ONT
will be
examined as part of the master plan.

m) Air Quality: As in all of the Los Angeles Area, air quality issues and
create limitations on development. A mitigation plan for airport related
will be essential to the success of any master plan. ONT is currently
under an Air Resource Board Air Quality Certificate that limits the airport
million annual passengers or 125,000 annual commercial operations over
pounds. The impact of this current limit and the actions necessary to
increase it
must be assessed.

n) Community Support: ONT is fortunate to have a great deal of support for
growth from the local community. The master plan development process must
include input from the local community to preserve that support and good
The plan must also provide a clear understanding of both the economic
and the impacts of airport expansion on the surrounding communities.
