Porter Airlines has revealed more details of its updated in-flight service offering, with an emphasis on partnering with Canadian brands. Coinciding with the addition of new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft to expand its network, Porter's new aircraft and in-flight amenities come into service on 01FEB 2023.

According to Porter, each in-flight amenity partner was selected for its locality, quality ingredients, brand alignment, and focus on sustainability.

"Porter is aligning our brand with premium partners who emulate our values and the distinct service that we pride ourselves in delivering," said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines.

Porter's existing signature in-flight service - PorterClassic - featuring complimentary beer and wine served in glassware, along with a selection of premium snacks, will continue to be part of the journey on both the De Havilland Dash 8-400 and Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. This includes:

On longer haul E195-E2 flights, the option of fresh food is also available, along with additional premium beverages. These menu items are included with PorterReserve, a new, all-inclusive economy experience, and also available for purchase with PorterClassic. They include:
