Porter Now Serving the Seashell Capital of Florida; Fort Myers

Canadians have a great, new way to get to Fort Myers, Florida.

Porter Airlines has launched its daily, roundtrip service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers.

The Fort Myers area is home to exceptional resorts and beautiful islands, including Sanibel and Captiva which are known for some of the best seashell hunting in the world.

Fort Myers is the home of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, where Thomas Edison and Henry Ford used to go to escape northern winters. The Fort Myers River District features monthly art walks and regular live music walks.

Porter Airlines has a well-earned reputation for providing great service, and the addition of Fort Myers to its list of destinations is part of Porter’s North American expansion plan.

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.

Porter is committed to providing an elevated economy experience for its passengers. Everyone receives free, fast WiFi to stream their preferred platforms and stay connected throughout the entire flight. A selection of premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware are available for everyone onboard.

Extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are also available with the all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or can be purchased à la carte with PorterClassic fares.

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.

“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," said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. "It’s a pleasure to bring our elevated economy experience to southwest Florida.”

“We want to extend Porter Airlines a warm welcome from Southwest Florida International Airport," said Ben Siegel, executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. "Today, Porter inaugurates its first nonstop flight into Fort Myers from Toronto, Canada, a popular destination for residents and visitors coming to Southwest Florida.

"This daily service will be a great new option for travellers to enjoy.”
