Porter Adds Halifax Flights From Pearson

Porter Airlines will add service to Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) beginning Feb. 23, 2023.

The carrier has been serving the Halifax community since 2007 and passengers can now choose to travel with Porter using two Toronto airports on this popular route, including the downtown convenience of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines, said that: “Halifax is a popular destination for business and leisure passengers. This new service from Pearson provides everyone with more choice.” Jackson continued: “We are growing our total number of Halifax flights across multiple routes by nearly 50% compared to pre-pandemic levels, averaging over 20 departures and arrivals per day.”

Joyce Carter, President & CEO, Halifax International Airport Authority, said: “Porter Airlines has been serving our community for 15 years, and we couldn’t be more excited that they are choosing to grow their existing network here at Halifax Stanfield. Operating on the new Embraer E195-E2 jets, this route will be a wonderful addition, providing additional connectivity that benefits leisure and business travellers alike. We value our ongoing partnership with Porter and look forward to the inaugural flight in February 2023.”

Flights on the Halifax-Toronto Pearson route will operate on 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. Porter’s onboard service offers every passenger an elevated economy experience that includes no middle seats, complimentary beer and wine served in real glassware, a selection of premium snacks, and free, fast WiFi. This is all provided at highly competitive fares.

Porter’s non-stop routes from Halifax now include Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto City, Toronto Pearson and St. John’s, N.L. A number of connecting flights are also available at various airports on Porter and its partner airlines.
