Porter Matching Competitor Loyalty On VIPorter

Porter Airlines is extending a special offer to all frequent WestJet travellers that provides immediate access to its VIPorter loyalty program Avid Traveller membership.

VIPorter Avid Travellers receive perks including faster points accumulation, dedicated airport services, complimentary seat assignments, PorterClassic Stretch seats with more legroom, checked baggage travel flexibility and confirmed PorterReserve upgrade certificates.

The Avid Traveller level granted will be based on the current WestJet rewards level.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines, said that: “This offer is especially appealing to loyal WestJet customers throughout Eastern Canada who either no longer have access to flights or have greatly reduced flight options in their communities. Porter has an extensive and expanding Eastern Canada network with a high-frequency schedule on many routes.”

Jackson continued: “We’re growing our service across Canada and North America, and only Porter provides every passenger an elevated economy experience,” “Other airline programs make earning points and redeeming benefits overly complex. VIPorter members earn 100% of their points on all Porter fares, including Basic, the lowest fare option. Travellers earn valuable benefits with fewer flights and less annual spend than with any other Canadian airline.”

Travellers interested in matching their status will receive a trial VIPorter Avid Traveller membership for 120 days with the ability to maintain that level through Dec. 31, 2024, based on achieving a reduced qualifying spend threshold. Every dollar spent on Porter, excluding taxes and fees, is applied to the spend goal.

  • VIPorter Venture – earn $750 in qualifying spend
  • VIPorter Ascent – earn $1,500 in qualifying spend
  • VIPorter First – earn $2,500 in qualifying spend

The offer expires on May 31 and details on how to participate are available on
