Porter launches new Fort Lauderdale routes from YYZ, YOW

Porter Airlines has expanded its Florida offering from Eastern Canada with flights from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Ottawa International Airport (YOW) taking off for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) for the first time yesterday.

Both routes begin with daily roundtrip flights operated on the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The aircraft is a two-by-two configuration, meaning there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.

For the first time, passengers can experience Porter’s style, care, and charm throughout the entire journey from Fort Lauderdale to Western Canada destinations like Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, connecting via Toronto Pearson and Ottawa International.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Porter Airlines, said: “Florida is a popular destination for Canadians and Fort Lauderdale is the fourth market in the state that Porter has launched this fall. We’re excited that passengers can now choose to travel in style with Porter’s unique elevated economy experience to more destinations than ever before.”
