Toronto-based Canadian carrier Porter Airlines, which claims to offer premium service on short- and medium-haul journeys, has extended its network with flights between its home base at Toronto’s Billy Bishop City Airport and Pittsburgh.
The airline’s ‘flying refined’ approach includes leather seats, free wine and beer and airport lounge access and has helped Porter to the Best Regional Airline in North America title two years running at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.
People flying into Toronto benefit from Billy Bishop Airport’s downtown location, with the financial and business districts only 2.5km from the terminal. The airport also has a newly-opened pedestrian tunnel connecting it with the mainland in about 6min. There is also a ferry service for vehicle access and as a secondary pedestrian crossing.
Porter, headed by President and CEO Robert Deluce, has two daily weekday roundtrip flights – one on Saturdays and two on Sundays. Connecting flights via Toronto provide service for multiple other Canadian cities served by Porter. The airline flies Canadian-built Bombardier Aerospace Q400 turboprops seating up to 86 passengers and noted for their quietness.
As well as short-haul destinations in Canada, the airline flies to major US airports including New York Newark, Chicago Midway, Boston and Washington Dulles and also Pittsburgh. www.flyporter.com
