Porter Airlines adding flights to key Canadian routes

Written by editor

Porter Airlines is significantly increasing flight frequencies on its Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa routes, further improving competition on Canada’s busiest airline routes.

Porter Airlines is significantly increasing flight frequencies on its Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa routes, further improving competition on Canada’s busiest airline routes.

Flights between Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA) and Montreal will double by May 6, to as many as 18 roundtrips each weekday from the current level of nine. An initial increase to 14 daily roundtrips takes place April 14. On the TCCA-Ottawa route, the number of roundtrips increases to 14 from 10 on April 30. Weekend service is also increasing on both routes.

“With peak-time flights regularly operating at capacity on our busiest routes, the added flights are necessary for meeting the obvious passenger demand,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “We’re giving Porter customers what they’ve asked for with more flights at times that matter to them on these crucial routes.”

Passengers can now also fly further and to more destinations by booking connecting flights on Porter, with service available beginning March 30. The network will be strengthened with 10 new city pairs that initially create various new routes among New York, Chicago, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, and Thunder Bay.

The Porter experience is redefining short-haul air travel with a commitment to speed, convenience, and service that is becoming widely known among travelers. All Porter passengers have access to a private area in the terminal with leather lounge seating, snacks, beverages, WiFi and computer workstations, all at no additional cost. The onboard offering continues to provide complimentary premium snacks, wine, beer, and extra legroom. Its TCCA base is one of the most convenient urban airports in the world, just minutes from downtown. Its location saves passengers up to two hours or more on roundtrip travel.

“The combination of a full-service product providing unbeatable value is something all travelers appreciate, particularly today,” said Deluce. “Now is the time to invest and take advantage of the goodwill Porter is creating in the market by improving our product and strengthening the foundation for future growth.”
