Porter Taking Off For The Maritimes

Porter Airlines is increasing its presence in the Maritimes with the addition of three new non-stop routes connecting Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Halifax, Fredericton and Moncton.

Non-stop Halifax service begins April 7, featuring up to three daily roundtrips in summer, while Fredericton and Moncton both start May 5, with one daily year-round non-stop flight each.

This new service is in addition to existing flights for each market that stop in Montreal or Ottawa, and don’t require passengers to change aircraft.

Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines, said: “These three established Porter markets in Atlantic Canada will see significant service improvements with new year-round, non-stop routes and many opportunities for convenient connecting flights. It also demonstrates our commitment to investing in Billy Bishop Airport, which serves as an important regional transportation hub and provides exceptional access to central Toronto.”

The combination of increased flight frequency and non-stop service links Atlantic Canada more conveniently with Porter’s network in Ontario and the U.S., including for Newfoundland travellers who benefit from the creation of a single connection trip to Toronto via Halifax.

Porter offers these markets their only direct access to downtown Toronto’s Billy Bishop Airport. This includes the ability to make easier connections to onward destinations given the airport’s modest size. Available connecting flights for each market are as follows:

Halifax

  • Boston
  • Chicago-Midway
  • New York-Newark
  • Washington-Dulles
  • Sault Ste. Marie
  • Thunder Bay

Fredericton
