Porter Airlines was chosen as North America’s Best Regional Airline in the 2014 Skytrax World Airline Awards.
It is the first year for Skytrax to recognize the category of North American Regional Airline.
Each year, travellers from more than 160 countries take part in the world’s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to select the award winners. This year’s presentation ceremony was held at the Farnborough International Airshow, in the United Kingdom.
“This accolade highlights Porter on an international stage,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “It demonstrates that passengers appreciate our approach to service and recognize the value of a convenient downtown airport like Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.”
Porter prides itself on emphasizing service, and providing complimentary amenities, including lounge access, beer, wine and food for all passengers.
“We hope to spread our wings, servicing routes across North America,” said Deluce. “Adding destinations such as Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver, will allow us to offer the Porter experience to even more passengers.”
Porter is proposing to connect its existing network via conveniently located Toronto City Airport to destinations across North America, beginning in 2016. Official approvals are pending.
