New Ottawa to Vancouver Flight on Porter Airlines

Porter Airlines is adding the West Coast to its growing list of non-stop routes from the nation’s capital with new service between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR). The addition of the Ottawa-Vancouver route provides another way to travel between Porter’s extensive regional Eastern Canada network and British Columbia.

The new route begins on July 26, with one daily roundtrip flight operated with the state-of-the-art 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

The scheduled service will connect with Charlottetown, Halifax, Moncton, New York, Toronto-Pearson, Toronto-City and Thunder Bay through Ottawa.

“Ottawa is positioned as a critical part of Porter’s growing North American network,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “We will continue building our presence in YOW and providing a superior level of service and travel options for economy travelers.”

“We have eagerly awaited the expansion of Porter’s E195-E2 jet destinations from YOW and are pleased that Vancouver tops the list,” said Mark Laroche, Ottawa International Airport Authority President and CEO. “Now that Porter reaches Canada’s west and east coasts from YOW, I am confident that Porter’s current passengers and new ones alike will appreciate flying refined on these popular routes.”

“We’re excited to welcome Porter Airlines’ new route from YVR to YOW as part of its growing service to Western Canada,” said Russell Atkinson, director, air service development at Vancouver Airport Authority. “This new service provides an additional option for passengers looking for access to Ottawa and beyond into Eastern Canada.”

The new Ottawa-Vancouver route complements existing service between Toronto-Pearson and Vancouver. The latter’s summer schedule has up to five daily round trips.

Service features on this route include complimentary premium snacks, beer and wine served in glassware, and free, fast WiFi for all passengers. Fresh, healthy meals are also provided on an all-inclusive basis with PorterReserve fares or may be purchased à la carte for passengers travelling in PorterClassic.

Porter will operate 10 non-stop routes to and from YOW as of July.
