Porter Airlines adding three new crew bases in Ottawa, Montréal, Vancouver

Porter Airlines is adding three new Embraer E195-E2 crew bases across Canada for over 350 pilots and flight attendants at Ottawa International Airport (YOW), Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

By the summer, Porter will operate 14 nonstop routes from Ottawa, six routes from Montreal, and three routes from Vancouver.

These bases feed into Porter’s strong Eastern Canada network and its growing western markets.

Kent Woodside, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Porter Airlines said: “These new bases will provide significant opportunities for crew who want to live close to where they work.

“Local crew can better support Porter’s commitment to operational reliability and ultimately provide an even more elevated level of service for our passengers.”
