Porter Airlines continues to expand its North American network with the addition of two new routes from September 2023.
The airline recently ordered 50 new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, considerably increasing the size of its fleet. Over the next few years, Porter’s ambition is to serve :
- Canada from coast to coast
- the United States
- and the Caribbean.
New Toronto-Victoria route
As of today, this new route between Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Victoria International Airport (YYJ) can be booked. These flights will start on September 20th, 2023, with a daily round trip. Here are the details:
|Toronto YYZ – Victoria YYJ||10:55 a.m.||1:04 p.m.|
|Victoria YYJ – Toronto YYZ||2:00 p.m.||9:31 p.m.|
The schedule is designed to allow connecting flights to Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa and St. John’s.
Porter Airlines offers an enhanced economy-class experience. Passengers will enjoy a range of on-board services, including complimentary snacks, beer and wine, and free Wi-Fi for all.
For example, a round-trip flight from Toronto-Victoria from September 23th to 30th costs $475.94 with the PorterClassic Basic fare. This fare does not include cabin or checked baggage.
New Toronto-St. St. John's route
Porter is also adding service between Toronto-Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and St. John’s International Airport (YYT) in Newfoundland. The airline was already present in St. John’s since 2009 with its older aircraft, the De Havilland Dash 8-400. Operating Embraer aircraft on these new routes will considerably increase passenger capacity.
Daily flights between Toronto-Pearson and St. John’s will start operations on September 6th, 2023. Here are the details:
|Toronto YYZ – St. John’s YYT||8:15 p.m.||12:45 a.m.|
|St. John’s YYT – Toronto YYZ||8:00 a.m.||10:00 a.m.|
As an indication, a round-trip ticket from Toronto to St. John’s on September 7th to 11th would cost about $395.49 with the PorterClassic Basic rate. As in the previous example, cabin baggage and checked baggage are not included.
Porter Airlines has significantly increased its service in Canada over the past year. It even has its own loyalty program, VIPorter. With its new aircraft and new flights, this airline is enhancing the North American flight offering.
