    Several flights at the airport were canceled in the first few days of April after the roof of a Southwest Airlines aircraft ripped open on a flight en route to Sacramento from Tucson. Southwest though still accounted for the majority of all passengers, about 54 percent traveling through Ontario between January and April.
