Porter Airlines Extends Flight Suspension to 19MAY

Porter Airlines

Porter Airlines has pushed back its targeted resumption date from 29MAR to 19MAY.

“The implementation of more restrictive travel rules by governments since our last update makes an early spring restart unviable,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.

“While there are signs of progress in containing the pandemic, it is necessary to reset our sights based on changing conditions. We remain optimistic that things are moving in the right direction, but it is possible that this tentative date may also need to be modified if vaccinations don’t accelerate to enable the easing of travel restrictions.”

Porter says updates will be provided in the coming weeks about the status of flights. The airline first suspended operations due to the COVID on 21MAR, 2020.
