In accordance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) it is the policy of Ontario International Airport to make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices, and procedures to accommodate disability needs.


What Is A Reasonable Modification?

A reasonable modification is a change or exception to a policy, practice, or procedure that allows people with disabilities to have equal access to programs, services and activities. Reasonable modifications must always be related to the individual’s specific limitation caused by the disability.

When requesting a reasonable modification to an airport program or service, an individual with a disability is not required to provide medical documentation or diagnosis to justify their request, but they must be able to explain how their disability is related to the requested modification.


How do I request a Reasonable Modification?

Contact the airport division offering the program or activity you wish to participate in. They will arrange for special accommodations. Their contact information is provided in the literature announcing the event.

What is The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program

Ontario International Airport is proud to participate in The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program, a voluntary self-identification program for individuals with a hidden disability or conditions that may not be immediately obvious. It is a discreet sign that indicates when a traveler may need additional support, help, or just a little more time. These hidden disabilities can be physical, auditory, visual, cognitive, or possibly even temporary in nature. Airport employees are trained to identify the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower and may ask what we can do to assist. 

How to Self-Identify:

Here at ONT, we offer a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard with ID card, pin, and wristband to help you self-identify.

There are a few ways to participate:

  • Visit the Travelers Aid desk located on the first floor in either Terminal 2 or 4.
  • Speak to an O.A.C.E.S. (Ontario Airport Customer Experience Specialists) team member – they’re in the ONT blue shirts roaming the terminals!
  • Contact your airline representative at check-in when you arrive at the airport.
  • If you would like to obtain your items before arriving at the airport, you can request to have them mailed by emailing [email protected]. *Recommend reaching out at least three weeks prior to your anticipated travel date*
