Frequent flyers, unable to travel due to COVID-19, are being provided with greater flexibility by Porter Airlines.
Porter Pass holders and VIPorter loyalty members will continue receiving the full value of their travel programs.
Porter Pass offers frequent travellers prepaid tickets for a select number of one-way flights, at a discounted price. Porter Pass holders with vouchers set to expire between March 2 and July 31, 2020, now have until June 30, 2021 to use their passes. The system is automatically updated and no action is necessary. All other terms and conditions apply.
For complete details on Porter Pass, go to www.flyporter.com.
VIPorter loyalty members will maintain their current points balance. VIPorter points set to expire between March 19 and June 15, 2020, will be extended to Dec. 31, 2021. Points that have already expired during this time period will be reinstated automatically. No action is required by VIPorter members.
VIPorter premium members will automatically have their current status extended until Dec. 31, 2021. Members’ 2020 qualifying spend isn’t affected by this change, so they will continue earning towards their next premium upgrade when they begin flying again this year.
Kevin Jackson, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer for Porter Airlines, explained that: “The extensions to our travel programs provide the reassurance our passengers need during this uncertain time. When they are ready to return to the skies, they can resume travelling with confidence, right where they left off.”
On March 21, Porter temporarily suspended operations to support ongoing public health efforts to contain COVID-19. Reservations are currently being taken for Porter flights starting June 1. All new flights booked for June are fully changeable and can be cancelled without fees, to give passengers maximum flexibility as travel resumes.
