From 13 April, Porter Airlines is to increase frequency on key routes between Montreal and Halifax, Moncton and Ottawa, and Toronto and Ottawa.
The Montreal–Halifax route will operate year-round with up to two daily non-stop roundtrip flights, increased from four weekly flights. This service also makes possible one daily roundtrip flight between St. John’s and Montreal, connecting in Halifax.
Daily service from Moncton to Ottawa, continuing to Porter’s downtown base at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport offers increased travel options. Porter is offering one daily roundtrip flight, plus two roundtrips on Sunday, up from four weekly flights. The summer schedule on this route, beginning on 27 June, includes a seasonal increase with up to two daily roundtrip flights.
Service between Ottawa and Toronto is also increasing to as many as 21 daily roundtrip flights, up from a previous peak of 19. This is the highest number of daily flights on the route for Porter since it began in 2006.
“These service improvements fulfil one of our promises to support our four core destinations; Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and Toronto,” explained Robert Deluce, Porter’s president and CEO. “It is important to build our presence in these markets with routes that operate every day and year-round to provide passengers with consistent choice.”
