Porter adds direct route between Ottawa & Winnipeg

Porter Airlines is launching non-stop service between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG). Flights between the two cities commence on May 16, 2024, with one daily roundtrip flight.

The introduction of this route reinforces Porter’s commitment to Canada’s Capital Region, offering travellers seamless connectivity between Manitoba and Porter’s extensive network out of Ottawa.

About the flights

Flights between YOW and YWG will be served by Porter’s new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

Configured in a two-by-two seating arrangement, there are no middle seats onboard. Passengers on this route will also enjoy Porter’s renowned hospitality, with complimentary beer and wine served in real glassware, Canadian premium snacks, and fast, free WiFi for everyone.

“Our presence in Ottawa continues to grow with this latest Winnipeg route,” said Porter Airlines’ executive vice-president and chief commercial officer Kevin Jackson. “Passengers will travel in style as they immerse themselves in Porter’s elevated economy experience, which is unmatched anywhere else in the industry.”

The service will connect with Boston, Charlottetown, Fredericton, Halifax, Moncton, New York, Thunder Bay, Toronto-Pearson, Toronto-City and St John’s through Ottawa.

Extra legroom seats, premium cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are also available with all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or can be purchased à la carte with PorterClassic fares.
