Porter Unveils Summer Schedule From Pearson

Porter Airlines has unveiled its summer schedule at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), with additional flexibility when travelling between YYZ and Ottawa (YOW), Montreal (YUL), Halifax (YHZ), Vancouver (YVR), Edmonton (YEG) and Calgary (YYC).

The new schedule comes into effect on June 1, adding more desirable flight times that are well-distributed throughout the day. Certain routes will see a further increase in flights by August. A greater number of coast-to-coast connecting flight options via Porter’s YYZ hub are also created with this new schedule.

Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines, said: “Porter is known to provide high-frequency, daily service on its core routes. Consistent with this approach, we’re continuing our planned growth at Toronto Pearson and investing to provide passengers with the travel options they value.”

Jackson continued: “Travellers can count on even more flights being added to these markets, as well as entirely new destinations being announced in the coming months. Porter is setting out to elevate the economy travel experience and offering frequent flights is another way that we’re serving the needs of business and leisure travellers.”

Porter operates the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 on all Toronto Pearson routes, featuring an all-economy, two-by-two configuration. Porter is the only airline with no middle seats on every flight.
