Porter CEO Not Worried about YYZ Chaos as Airline Plans Fall Expansion to Pearson

As Porter Airlines set its sights on expanding to YYZ, President and CEO Michael Deluce tells BNN Bloomberg in an interview that delays, flight cancellations and passenger congestion at the airport are only temporary. Deluce says challenges at Canada’s major airports are “transitionary,” and predicts that staffing levels will “eventually normalize” and other issues will “work their way through the system.” By the time Porter Airlines comes to YYZ in the fall, Deluce is “confident” operations will be better by then.

Deluce also placed much of the blame for issues at YYZ on Air Canada and WestJet’s respective staff shortages, saying the issues are not “strictly airport-related.”
