Porter Airlines Announces Largest-Ever Summer Schedule From Toronto

Porter Airlines is launching its most extensive summer schedule ever. The airline will operate up to 176 daily flights to 27 North American destinations from Toronto-Pearson and Toronto-City airports, offering an enhanced economy flying experience.

By August, Porter Airlines will become the third-largest carrier at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The airline will offer 74 flights daily to 16 destinations in Canada and the US. All flights from Pearson will operate on the airline’s new 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

Toronto-Pearson Airport offers flights to multiple destinations in the U.S., including Florida, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. It also connects to several Canadian cities, like Halifax, Québec City, St. John’s, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, Winnipeg, and Saskatoon.

Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is a key hub for Porter Airlines. It connects downtown Toronto to its network in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern U.S. The airport handles up to 102 daily flights to 15 destinations using the 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft. Porter offers exclusive non-stop flights from Billy Bishop to popular destinations, including New York-Newark, Chicago-Midway, Boston, Halifax, Washington D.C.-Dulles, and Thunder Bay.

More Options From Toronto

“Porter is offering passengers a level of generous economy service they will not receive from any other carrier serving Toronto, and we’re continuing to provide passengers with more choice from both of the airports that serve the Greater Toronto community,” said Kevin Jackson, president of Porter Airlines.

“It was only last February that Porter started flying out of Toronto-Pearson, so to have grown to become the third-largest carrier this summer reinforces the fact that once passengers try our style of economy travel, we are seeing them choose to fly us again and to more destinations. We will continue to expand the number of destinations served as we take delivery of more of our Embraer E195 aircraft.”

Billy Bishop and Pearson also provide connecting flights within Porter’s network and globally through its partners. Through Toronto-Pearson, the airline’s partnership with Air Transat allows access to European cities like London, Paris, and Amsterdam.

Incredible Growth In 2 Years

“Porter’s growth over the last two years has been incredible,” said Kurush Minocher, executive director, customer experience and airline relationships, Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “They have quickly established their hub in Toronto, offering robust domestic connectivity, and will be operating their first summer season on some US routes. We congratulate Porter on their success and look forward to their continued growth, including here at Toronto Pearson.”

“Porter Airlines’ commitment to elevating flight and ensuring the highest standards of service has created their space within Canadian aviation,” said Warren Askew, vice president, Airport, PortsToronto, owner and operator of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

“As we celebrate Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport’s 85th anniversary, we take pride in our longstanding partnership with Porter Airlines and in their successes, which reflect our shared commitment to excellence and serving all of Toronto. This summer and beyond, we look forward to continuing to work together to drive economic growth for the region and deliver the exceptional travel experience YTZ passengers have come to know and love.”
