Porter flight between Toronto & LA takes off

Porter Airlines is celebrating the start of daily roundtrip service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), fostering greater connectivity and cultural exchange between the two vibrant cities.

Operating aboard the state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, this route offers a 132-seat, all-economy configuration with a comfortable two-by-two layout, which means no middle seats for any passenger.

“The level of service that Porter provides is something that no other airline offers for economy passengers on this route,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “Our focus on delivering an elevated economy experience allows passengers to receive celebrity treatment before immersing themselves in the rich cultural scenes of Toronto and Los Angeles.”

About the flight

The E195-E2 is the most environmentally-friendly single-aisle aircraft, at 65 per cent quieter and up to 25 per cent more fuel efficient than previous-generation technology. It has the lowest fuel consumption per seat and per trip among 120- to 150-seat aircraft, and is the quietest single-aisle jet flying today.

Complimentary beer, wine, and premium snacks, plus free, fast WiFi, are available for all passengers. All-inclusive PorterReserve fares offer priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails and fresh, healthy meals. These options are also available à la carte to passengers purchasing PorterClassic fares.

The recently-announced Alaska Airlines’ partnership also allows passengers to take advantage of Porter’s strong presence across Eastern Canada and provides more options to connect through LAX to 11 of Alaska’s well-established U.S. West Coast links, including Portland, San Diego, Seattle, and Phoenix.
