Start of service to Orlando marks Porter Airlines’ third new Florida destination, following Tampa and Fort Myers.

Porter Airlines announced two new routes to Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Florida, USA today, with flights departing from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Ottawa International Airport (YOW).

The start of service to Orlando marks the third new Florida destination that Porter has touched down since the start of November, following Tampa and Fort Myers.

Porter Airlines will be servicing new Orlando routes with new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

“Canadians are the most frequent international visitors to Florida, and Porter is proud to take off on two more routes into the Sunshine State,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Porter Airlines.

“Ottawa-Gatineau residents have proven that they are very keen to travel to sunny Florida,” said Mark Laroche, President and CEO, Ottawa International Airport Authority. “We are pleased to offer passengers an elevated experience on Porter’s new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft nonstop from YOW.”

“With Porter’s new service, Orlando International can offer passengers even more choices to visit Orlando’s popular theme parks and fascinating destinations like Toronto and Ottawa,” said Kevin J. Thibault, CEO, Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

“We’re pleased to see the launch of Porter’s service to Orlando and their continued commitment to growing their network from Toronto Pearson,” said Khalil Lamrabet, Chief Commercial Officer, Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “Orlando will be Pearson’s second largest trans-border market this winter and with heightened demand to Florida Porter’s daily service will add 8% more seats between the two markets.”

“Porter’s direct flight service to Orlando provides a new option for travelers to more easily get to the theme park capital of the world,” said Casandra Matej, president and CEO for Visit Orlando. “The timing is ideal, ahead of winter travel, giving Canadians the opportunity to soak up the sunshine this winter and beyond.”

The new routes give passengers from Florida the opportunity to travel onwards to Western Canada destinations, with connections available to cities including Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton.
