Porter Touches Down In Fort Myers

Porter Airlines is launching its daily, roundtrip service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers, making it the latest addition to the airline’s North American expansion plan.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines, said: “Canadians love Florida and they deserve to enjoy their travels  the moment they get on the plane. With Porter, every passenger receives the same level of hospitality and elevated service — travellers will notice the difference when they fly with us.  It’s a pleasure to bring our elevated economy experience to southwest Florida.”

Flights between Toronto Pearson and Fort Myers are operated by the state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The 132-seat, all-economy aircraft has a two-by-two configuration, which makes Porter the only carrier that can promise passengers no middle seats.

Fort Myers is one of the new non-stop routes Porter introduced this year to serve the growing number of Canadians eager to travel south. Other routes in Florida  include Toronto-Pearson (YYZ) to Tampa (TPA), Orlando (MCO), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Miami (MIA), and Ottawa (YOW) to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
