Porter Plans March 29 Restart

With the surge of COVID-19 cases and current public health measures, Porter Airlines says that it has revised the tentative restart date for its services to March 29, 2021.

Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines, said that: “With the introduction of vaccines, we are more optimistic about determining a date in the near-term to reintroduce flights than at any point since the pandemic began.”

Deluce continued: “More time is needed to assess the vaccine’s influence on current travel restrictions and when it is appropriate to begin operations again. We expect to establish a timeline for this to happen in the first part of 2021.”

The airline also advised that a further update will be provided this winter based on the status of the pandemic and the evolution of government measures that may promote greater freedom to travel.

Originally, Porter temporarily suspended operations on March 21, 2020, due to COVID-19.
