Porter Airlines is adding daily roundtrip flights on three new non-stop routes between Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG). 

Porter said, "The new routes beginning next spring provide another way to travel between Porter's Eastern Canada network and the West."

"Montréal has been an important part of Porter's network since 2006, and our presence continues to grow. We're building out YUL with popular destinations and strategic partnerships, so travellers can connect coast-to-coast with an unmatched elevated economy experience," Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer of Porter Airlines, said in a statement.

The flight schedule is as follows:


"ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted with the addition of Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary to the destinations offered by Porter. These new direct routes enhance the offer from Montréal and represent a great opportunity to develop YUL's domestic air service. We are very pleased to support Porter in expanding its Canadian offer, which meets the needs of different groups of travellers. A vibrant airport is one that benefits the entire community. That's the strength of YUL," commented Stéphane Lapierre, vice president of airport operations and air services development at Aéroports de Montréal.

The scheduled service will connect with Halifax, Toronto-Pearson, and Toronto-City through Montréal, complementing non-stop western service from Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa to each market. 

The new daily roundtrip flights will be operated with the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. As Open Jaw previously reported, additional connections are also available through Porter's partnership with Air Transat, including regions in North America, Europe and southern destinations.
