Porter Launches Ottawa, Edmonton Service

Porter Airlines is launching service between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG).

The new route begins with one daily roundtrip flight 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.

The Edmonton-Ottawa route offers a variety of connections to the east coast via Ottawa, including Newark and Boston. Porter also operates multiple non-stop daily flights between Edmonton and Toronto-Pearson.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said: “We’re continuing to expand our Western Canada network and this new route connects travellers with many of our well-established Eastern Canada destinations. With our elevated approach to service, passengers enjoy every step of their journey when they fly with Porter.”
