Porter Expands Western Canada Network

Porter Airlines will be expanding its network in Western Canada this fall with the addition of a non-stop route between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG).

Launching on Oct. 4, it will feature one daily roundtrip flight operated on the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. Introductory roundtrip fares start at $184.

The Edmonton-Ottawa route offers a variety of connections to Eastern Canada via Ottawa. Porter also operates multiple non-stop daily flights between Edmonton and Toronto-Pearson.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said that: “The addition of this route provides a higher level of connectivity across our network between Eastern and Western Canada. We welcome the opportunity to provide even more travellers across the country with an elevated economy experience that they won’t find with any other airline.”

This route complements Porter’s existing presence from Ottawa to Western Canada, including nonstop service from Ottawa and Vancouver and additional connecting options via Toronto-Pearson to Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
