Beginning 17MAY, Porter Airlines is launching new, daily non-stop flights between Ottawa International Airport and Charlottetown Airport, the only such service available. The route is seasonal MAY- OCT, and Porter will operate the service on its 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft.

Introductory roundtrip fares start at CAD $297, including taxes and fees. Connections are currently available from Charlottetown to Thunder Bay, Toronto City, and Toronto Pearson.

“Porter is continuing to invest in regional flying across Eastern Canada,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “Charlottetown is an entirely new destination for us and the addition of Prince Edward Island means that Porter is serving every Atlantic Canada province for the first time.”

Porter currently serves Moncton, Fredericton, Halifax and St. John’s, N.L., in the region.

According to Porter, the airline has more than doubled the number of regional destinations served from Ottawa in recent months. The introduction of Charlottetown is in addition to three new routes connecting Ottawa with Boston, New York-Newark and Thunder Bay beginning this spring. Porter also currently flies to Fredericton, Halifax, Moncton and Toronto City with its Dash 8-400 fleet. A Toronto Pearson-Ottawa route on Porter's new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft started earlier in FEB.

For the YOW-YYG route, Porter’s  onboard service, including premium snacks, and free beer and wine in glassware will be experienced by all passengers. PorterReserve, a new, all-inclusive fare, also provides dedicated airport check-in, early boarding, enhanced legroom, two checked bags and the ability to change flights without a fee.
