Porter welcomes two non-stop routes from Montreal to California

Porter Airlines is adding seasonal roundtrip flights on two new non-stop routes between Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

The new YUL-LAX route begins June 27, with four-times weekly service. YUL-SFO begins on June 28, with three-times weekly service. The program ends on Oct. 26. The new routes provide another way to travel between Porter’s extensive Eastern Canada network and the U.S. west coast.

“Passengers can now more easily travel across the continent in style with Porter’s unmatched elevated economy experience,” said Kevin Jackson, president, Porter Airlines. “These Montréal routes connect to destinations across the globe with Porter’s strategic partnerships, providing more options that travellers crave.”

The new 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.
