Porter partners with Qatar Airways

Porter Airlines is implementing its first interline partnership with Qatar Airways. The deal is effective immediately, providing expanded travel options for customers of both carriers. “Establishing Porter’s first interline agreement is an important occasion for us and we couldn’t have chosen a better partner than Qatar Airways, one of the world’s elite airlines,”said Porter president Robert Deluce. “It’s the beginning of a plan to add multiple interline partners in 2012, introducing Porter to an entirely new set of passengers.”Qatar’s Doha service to Montreal and Washington-Dulles are both available for Porter interline flights. Montreal connections are available three times weekly to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Halifax. Washington service is available daily to Toronto City Airport. Interline flights allow customers to purchase one ticket for a trip involving multiple airlines. At this time, all itineraries involving Qatar and Porter must be purchased from Qatar. (
