Porter Lands In Charlottetown, Confirms Year-Round Service
Porter Airlines has launched flights between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Charlottetown Airport (YYG) and has also confirmed plans to serve the route year-round.
As Porter arrives in Prince Edward Island, the airline now flies to all Atlantic provinces for the first time, reinforcing a commitment to building its presence in Eastern Canada.
Porter is the only airline offering year-round, daily non-stop service between Charlottetown and Ottawa. The direct service begins with 11 weekly flights, increasing to 14 weekly round trips during the summer peak season. As of Oct. 29, the route has daily service through the winter.
Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines, said that: “The launch of the Charlottetown-Ottawa route is an important milestone for Porter as we bring our signature service to Islanders for the first time. As we continue building a broader North American network, our growth throughout Eastern Canada remains an important priority to ensure communities have access to reliable air service.”
Ottawa also acts as a convenient connecting point for travellers making their way to and from PEI. This includes Vancouver on the West Coast and two options for accessing Toronto – the downtown convenience of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, plus Pearson International.
The non-stop flights between Ottawa and Charlottetown are served by 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft. All passengers will experience Porter’s genuine hospitality and elevated onboard service, including a selection of premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware.
With the introduction of Charlottetown, Porter is operating 10 non-stop routes from Ottawa International Airport this summer. Detailed schedules and Porter Escapes hotel and flight packages are available on www.flyporter.com.
