Such a milestone from Porter Airlines with the new Montreal-Vancouver flights is representative of strong growth.

Back in February, they revealed a significant expansion plan, which includes three new crew bases at:

  • Ottawa
  • Montreal
  • Vancouver

Last month, Porter Airlines inaugurated flights between Toronto and Las Vegas.

Finally, not long after the Las Vegas inauguration, flights to Los Angeles & San Francisco were launched from Montreal.

We can see clearly there that the growth is very rapid for the Canadian airline.
