Porter Airlines has opened its second passenger lounge at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport as part of a move to support increasing passenger numbers.
The second lounge has an array of free amenities standard to all Porter lounges. Passengers have more space to relax and recharge plus complimentary wireless internet access, business work stations equipped with iMac computers, and coffees, teas, soft drinks and snacks from the self-service café.
“Opening the second passenger lounge positions Porter and Toronto City Airport for planned growth, and demonstrates our commitment to providing passengers with superior service,” remarked Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “The airport’s success is creating the need for infrastructure enhancements, such as the new lounge. Porter’s investment in the new terminal will support approximately 1.4 million passengers in 2010.”
The new lounge space accommodates passengers flying within Canada, while the pre-existing lounge is now exclusive to those traveling to the US. The lounges are free of charge, and open to all departing passengers with a valid boarding pass.
