Porter Airlines Adds Three New Routes

DALLAS — Canadian regional carrier Porter Airlines (PD) has added three new routes to its growing presence in the North American market.

On October 4, 2023, PD announced that it had started flights from Ottawa International Airport (YOW) to and from Edmonton International Airport (YEG), a new domestic service. A 132-seater Embraer E195-E2 will operate this new route. This new route will be flown as a single daily return flight and will open connections to the rest of the East Coast via Ottowa, such as Newark and Boston.

The airline’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Kevin Jackson, said “We’re continuing to expand our Western Canada network, and this new route connects travelers with many of our well-established Eastern Canada destinations”. The Toronto-based airline currently flies 11 non-stop routes out of Ottawa.

Porter Airlines also announced that, commencing February 14, 2024, it will start another domestic service in Western Canada between Ottawa and Calgary International Airport (YYC). Its Embraer E195-E2 fleet will also be used on this route. Like PD’s other flights, passengers will be served complimentary beer, wine served in glassware, and snacks in addition to the availability of free WiFi for all passengers.

This new route will accompany its existing flights between Vancouver and Edmonton. According to the CAPA Center for Aviation, in 2019 PD held 4.4% of Canada’s aviation market.
