Canadian short-haul carrier Porter Airlines is introducing a new basic fare to cater for increasing demand from passengers for entry-level fares.
The new basic fare is designed to provide essential services for passengers with definite travel plans, it said. It delivers the lowest available price on select flights booked at least 21 days prior to departure, and does not allow itinerary changes or cancellations, with no refunds or credits issued. All service options, such as checked luggage and advance seat selection, are available for additional fees.
“This product appeals to the most price-conscious traveller,” said Michael Deluce, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer. “The basic fare will attract new customers who are looking for the lowest price.”
The low fares are being offered by the Toronto-based regional airline on select routes: Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins and Windsor, with the carrier intending to widen them to additional routes over a period of time.
