Unveiling an exciting new shortcut to New York City for Inland Empire residents


Nobody loves to sit in traffic, especially when you have a flight to catch. Los Angeles is the most congested city in the world, with drivers spending over 102 hours in traffic each year (even more than Moscow and New York!).* Recently, JetBlue launched nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Southern California’s Ontario International Airport (ONT), helping Inland Empire residents spend less time commuting and more time enjoying their destination.

As New York’s Hometown Airline® and the only airline to offer nonstop service between NYC and Ontario, we wanted to give Inland Empire residents one more time-saving shortcut to New York City with OntARio to NYC, a limited-time interactive augmented reality (AR) environment that will bring the Big Apple experience even closer. OntARio to NYC, presented by JetBlue and Ontario International Airport, allows users to explore iconic New York City monuments and local staples, such as the Statue of Liberty, a classic hot dog stand and even a giant New York-style bagel.

Did we mention there will be prizes up for grabs? Each day, OntARio to NYC participants will have the chance to win one of 113 prizes (that’s 339 prizes total!) simply by interacting with New York City landmarks within the app. Prizes include vouchers to Ontario International Airport concessions and roundtrip flights from ONT to JFK along with tickets to exciting New York City experiences, like local basketball and football games and shows.

We’ll be hosting the OntARio to NYC experience from Thursday, October 18, through Saturday, October 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. All you have to do is show up, download the OntARio to NYC app and start exploring!

Here’s how to download OntARio to NYC starting Thursday, October 18:
