Porter Inaugurates Ottawa-Vancouver Service

Porter Airlines has inaugurated service between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR). The route marks Porter’s first Western Canada destination from Ottawa.

Initially, Porter will offer one daily roundtrip flight on the route, using its 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. It offers a variety of connections to Eastern Canada via Ottawa.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said: “The Ottawa-Vancouver route is an important part of our expansion as we build a coast-to-coast network that offers travellers our unique approach to economy air travel. Travellers can connect through our well-established Eastern Canada network and enjoy Porter’s elevated economy experience each step of the way.”
