Porter Airlines has unveiled the first three routes it will be operation with its new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The carrier will serve Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Ottawa International Airport (YOW), and Montreal–Trudeau International Airport (YUL)from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) beginning in February 2023.
For the first time in its 16-year history, Porter is bringing its unique approach to service – which emphasizes style, care and charm — to Western Canada.
Flights between Toronto Pearson and Vancouver give travellers the ability to fly across the country with an airline that prioritizes enjoyable economy air travel for every passenger.
Porter has long-standing relationships with Ottawa and Montreal, representing the first two destinations served when the airline started flying in 2006 from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ). Passengers can now choose to travel with Porter using two Toronto airports on these popular routes, with the start of Pearson service. Montreal and Ottawa will continue playing important roles in Porter’s network as new destinations are introduced in 2023.
Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines, said: “Porter’s introduction of the E195-E2 provides the ability to operate throughout North America, including the west coast, better positioning us to serve the needs of many more business and leisure passengers.”
Deluce continued: “This investment introduces a new level of thoughtful service, unmatched by any other airline in North America. It will change the way passengers think about flying economy. A substantial amount of work has been accomplished to mark this milestone announcement, the first of many. I want to acknowledge the dedication and entrepreneurial spirit of our team members for getting us to this point. It’s quite an achievement.”
The carrier will launch Ottawa and Montreal service on Feb. 1, 2023 with introductory fares starting at $225. Service to Vancouver begins Feb. 7, 2023 with introductory fares starting at $248.
