Porter Airlines reveals new Embraer E195-E2 destinations

Porter Airlines is introducing the first three routes with its new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Ottawa International Airport (YOW), and Montreal–Trudeau International Airport (YUL).

For the first time in its 16-year history, Porter is bringing its distinguished approach to service, emphasizing style, care and charm, to Western Canada.

Flights between Toronto Pearson and Vancouver give travellers the ability to fly across the country with an airline that prioritizes enjoyable economy air travel for every passenger.

Porter has long-standing relationships with Ottawa and Montreal, representing the first two destinations served when the airline started flying in 2006 from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ).

Passengers can now choose to travel with Porter using two Toronto airports on these popular routes, with the start of Pearson service.

Montreal and Ottawa will continue playing important roles in Porter’s network as new destinations are introduced in 2023.

Service begins in February 2023 with multiple daily, non-stop flights, increasing over time for additional flexibility.

Building on the distinct service it offers today in regional air travel, Porter is introducing a new economy experience with an even greater commitment to hospitality and sustainability, at highly competitive fares.

This new approach to economy air travel challenges what every North American airline does today.

“Porter’s introduction of the E195-E2 provides the ability to operate throughout North America, including the west coast, better positioning us to serve the needs of many more business and leisure passengers,” Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines.

“This investment introduces a new level of thoughtful service, unmatched by any other airline in North America.

“It will change the way passengers think about flying economy. A substantial amount of work has been accomplished to mark this milestone announcement, the first of many.

“I want to acknowledge the dedication and entrepreneurial spirit of our team members for getting us to this point. It’s quite an achievement.”

“We’re pleased to welcome Porter Airlines to Toronto Pearson,” Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships, Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

“As the demand for travel continues to increase, we are happy to have Porter Airlines join us to offer even more options for our passengers.”
