Porter Airlines has signed a firm purchase agreement with Bombardier for three Q400 turboprop airliners.

Based on the list price of the Q400 aircraft, the order is valued at approximately US$93 million.

The three aircraft will increase Porter’s Q400 aircraft fleet to 29 aircraft. Porter exclusively flies Q400 airliners. The first two deliveries are scheduled for December.

“The Toronto-built Bombardier Q400 aircraft is everything you could ask for in a turboprop,” said Porter president Robert Deluce. “It is an important component of our award-winning customer experience. The combination of operating efficiency, speed, very low noise levels inside and out, and excellent passenger appeal are unbeatable.”
