Porter Pushes Service Restart To Nov. 12

Porter Airlines is advising that it will return to service on Nov. 12. Previously, the carrier had indicated that it was targeting to recommence its service on Oct. 7.

It noted in advising of the new date that the recent extension of the quarantine period for travellers entering or returning to Canada, along with the continued closure of the Canada-U.S. border and Atlantic Canada travel bubble, were key factors in the decision to extend the restart date.

Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines, said that: “Every one of our markets is affected by the Canadian government’s non-essential travel advisory and border closures. We understand the impact this has on our passengers and our team members, and continue to make decisions based on how the situation evolves.”

Porter also advised that it is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked through Nov. 12, including Porter Escapes vacation packages.

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