Porter to Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is to be the 22nd destination served by Porter Airlines from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.  Flights begin 21 September with up to two daily roundtrips featuring the popular 78-seat Q400 turboprop.

“Porter’s exceptional customer experience and competitive fares will be a big benefit for Pittsburgh flyers,” said Robert Deluce, President and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Our goal is to give more Canadians an opportunity to experience Pittsburgh, and provide those in Pittsburgh with a new way to connect with Canada.”

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald applauded the announcement as another addition to the growing list of non-stop destinations from Pittsburgh International Airport.

“Porter Airlines’ announcement marks the 50th non-stop destination served from Pittsburgh and the sixth international destination,” Fitzgerald said. “We’re excited that the airline recognized Pittsburgh and our growing economy as an important market to serve.”

Porter is the fourth carrier to announce the start of service at Pittsburgh International Airport within the past 12 months. Porter’s home base at Billy Bishop is known for convenience and proximity to downtown Toronto; just 1.5 miles from the central business and entertainment districts.  Currently access is by a short ferry ride but by the time the new service gets under way a brand new pedestrian tunnel should be in operation. www.flyporter.com
