Porter Airlines is taking to the skies this summer with its most ambitious schedule yet. The peak season scheduling offers a wider range of destinations, increased flight frequency, and an unparalleled economy experience.

This expansion marks a key step for the airline, fortifying its position as a major player in the Toronto air travel market.

More Destinations from Toronto

Passengers can look forward to a summer filled with travel possibilities. With up to 176 daily flights departing Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to 27 destinations across North America,

Porter Airlines is offering more choice than ever before, and the expanded schedule caters to diverse travel preferences.

It ranges from weekend getaways to a bustling U.S. city like Las Vegas to a relaxing escape to a charming Canadian destination like Halifax.

By August, Porter will be the third-largest carrier operating out of YYZ, a testament to the airline’s rapid growth and passenger satisfaction.

The increased capacity will be primarily served by the brand new, state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. These spacious 132-seat jets offer a comfortable flying experience, setting the stage for a smooth and enjoyable journey.

Connecting Toronto to North America

Porter Airlines caters to both domestic and international travel needs. Passengers can fly directly to popular U.S. destinations like Florida, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, all within easy reach from Toronto.

Additionally, Porter offers convenient connections to major Canadian cities. This includes Halifax, Quebec City, St. John’s, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, Winnipeg, and Saskatoon.

For travelers seeking a more intimate airport experience, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) remains a key hub for Porter Airlines.

Passengers flying out of YTZ will benefit from a convenient downtown location and access to up to 102 daily flights to 15 destinations in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern U.S.

Porter operates these flights with the reliable and comfortable 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft.

A unique advantage for passengers flying out of Billy Bishop is Porter’s exclusive non-stop service to popular destinations. These include New York-Newark, Chicago-Midway, Boston, Halifax, Washington D.C.-Dulles, and Thunder Bay.

This eliminates the need for layovers and allows for a more efficient travel experience.

Elevated Economy Experience Sets Porter Apart

Porter Airlines differentiates itself by offering an elevated economy experience unmatched by other airlines serving Toronto.

Passengers can expect a level of comfort and service typically associated with premium cabins.

Every fare includes complimentary premium snacks and a selection of beer and wine. In a neat touch, this is served in glassware, ensuring a touch of elegance during the flight.

For those flying on the Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, the experience is further enhanced. Cabin services include free, high-speed WiFi, allowing passengers to stay connected and entertained throughout the journey.

Additionally, these flights offer access to a delicious and healthy selection of meals available for purchase. The airline has ensured it caters to diverse dietary preferences.
