Porter Opens Up Ontario’s Muskoka Region

Porter Airlines will be flying to Muskoka Airport with the introduction of 2019 summer service.

Flights will have an air time of approximately 20 minutes, operating twice weekly on Thursdays and Mondays between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Muskoka Airport, from June 27 to Sept. 3. Connecting flights are available via Toronto for numerous Porter destinations in the US and Canada.

“Muskoka is an inspiring destination that attracts travellers from near and far,” said Porter president Robert Deluce. “This new route serves as a great opportunity to link Muskoka to our North American network.”

“Explorers’ Edge is thrilled to be partnering with Porter Airlines to bring seasonal service to the Muskoka Airport this summer,” said James Murphy, executive director of Explorers’ Edge. “As the regional tourism organization for Muskoka, Parry Sound and Algonquin Park, it is our intent to leverage this service to increase international visitation across our entire region. Our thanks to the District of Muskoka representatives for their efforts to ready the airport, including working with Transport Canada and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority.”

“A new summer service between Toronto and Muskoka is great news for all Ontarians,” said Michael Tibollo, minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Through this partnership, Porter Airlines and the regional tourism organization are opening a new route that will boost local business and make this stunning part of our province an easy-to-access vacation destination. Ontario is truly open for business in Muskoka.”

As part of the visitor experience in Muskoka and surrounding areas, Explorers’ Edge will also introduce a seasonal shuttle bus service at the airport to deliver Porter passengers to accommodations across the region. The organization will also offer a traveller incentive for tourists who book a flight and accommodation, to the tune of $100 in spending vouchers.

Flights are currently available for booking.
