Porter Starting Service Between YEG And YYZ

Porter Airlines is launching its first flights between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG). Edmonton is the first destination in Alberta to be added to the airline’s network.

Flights are operated with Porter’s new Embraer E195-E2 jets. A 132-seat, two-by-two configuration gives every passenger more space thanks to no middle seat.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines, said that: “The Toronto-Edmonton route is an opportunity for us to introduce Porter’s elevated economy travel experience to the Edmonton community. What Porter offers sets us apart from other airlines in North America by treating economy passengers with a level of respect and service that they won’t find anywhere else.”

Service on the Toronto Pearson-Edmonton route begins with one daily, non-stop return flight, increasing to three daily flights by May 1.
