Earlier this week saw Porter Airlines inaugurate a new service between Toronto Pearson and St. Johns International Airlines using its Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

This new service means that customers can opt to fly from either Pearson or Billy Bishop City Airport, which is operated by its Dash 8-Q400 aircraft.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

With the new Toronto Pearson service to St. Johns, this enables further connectivity on the Porter Airlines network to the likes of:

  • Vancouver
  • Victoria
  • Edmonton
  • Calgary
  • Winnipeg

Commenting on this new route inaugural was Kevin Jackson, the Executive VP and Chief Commercial Officer of the Canadian carrier:

“St. John’s is now connected coast to coast with Porter, including access to Toronto’s two airports.”

“Passengers on all flights receive the elevated level of service they’re used to from Porter, with genuine hospitality, no middle seats, free beer and wine served in glassware, and premium snacks.”

“With the Embraer E195-E2, we’re adding free, fast WiFi, for everyone and fresh meal options,”

“This is an economy travel experience that no other airline in North America provides.”

Adding to this was Dennis Hogan, the CEO of the St. John’s International Airport Authority:

“We are delighted that Porter’s direct route from St. John’s to Toronto-Pearson has officially launched”.

“This route, which uses the new Embraer aircraft, demonstrates Porter’s confidence in St. John’s as a key market, and we thank them for their continued partnership.”

Overall, this is a considerable expansion of its services from Toronto to areas around Canada, with Porter Airlines comfortably growing in areas it knows they can thrive in.
