Porter Airlines Celebrates "Sweet 16"

Porter AirlinesSunday, 23OCT,  marked Porter’s 16th year in service flying a regional network including destinations in eastern Canada and the United States.

Since its launch in 2006, Porter has carved out a unique niche in Canada's air travel market, flying from its hub and HQ at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport in the heart of downtown Toronto, including an upscale lounge experience and offering complimentary wine and beer served in glassware for every passenger.

In 2021, Porter announced plans to expand with a fleet of Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The planes will initially operate out of Toronto Pearson International Airport and introduce new destinations throughout North America, including the west coast, southern U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. The aircraft will also be used to enhance service in Halifax, Montreal and Ottawa in the coming years. Deliveries for up to 100 E195-E2s are expected to begin in 2022.

“It has been an eventful 12 months for Porter,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines. “Our team worked hard to rebuild operations as travel has reemerged this year. At the same time, we are working towards launching Embraer E195-E2 service and have already welcomed almost 1,000 new team members across our network in the process. We know that our travellers are counting down to the launch of our new aircraft and we are looking forward to being able to share more details, including our first new destinations, soon.

"This will be an incredible year of opportunity at Porter, as we expand our vision for air travel across North America.”
