Porter adds new routes to Western Canada from Montreal
Porter Airlines is adding daily roundtrip flights on three new non-stop routes between Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG).
The addition of the new routes beginning next spring provides another way to travel between Porter’s extensive Eastern Canada network and the west.
Service features on these routes include complimentary premium snacks, beer and wine served in glassware, and free, fast WiFi for all passengers. Fresh, healthy meals are also provided on an all-inclusive basis with PorterReserve fares or may be purchased à la carte for passengers travelling in PorterClassic.
“Montréal has been an important part of Porter’s network since 2006, and our presence continues to grow,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “We’re building out YUL with popular destinations and strategic partnerships, so travellers can connect coast-to-coast with an unmatched elevated economy experience.”
Connections via Montreal
The new daily roundtrip flights are operated with the state-of-the-art 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The two-by-two configuration means there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.
The scheduled service will connect with Halifax, Toronto-Pearson, and Toronto-City through Montréal, complementing non-stop western service from Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa to each market.
Additional connections are also available through Porter’s partnership with Air Transat, including regions in North America, Europe and southern destinations.
