But beyond that, Romo would not give specific details about the incentives being offered to airlines because they still need to be discussed with the Board of Airport Commissioners, the governing body for Los Angeles World Airports. The agency manages ONT and Los Angeles International Airport.

"I think that's going to depend on whatever our incentive program plan offers," Romo said. "I have reasonable expectations that it will be successful."
A letter was sent to current airlines at ONT notifying them about the program.
