Porter adds Calgary to growing list of new destinations

MIAMI — Porter Airlines continues to roll out routes for its new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, the latest being Toronto-Calgary.

After announcing earlier this month service from Toronto to Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Edmonton, the airline has added Calgary to its growing network, with two daily roundtrip flights between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Calgary International Airport (YYC) launching on Feb. 22, 2023.

This marks Porter’s second destination in Alberta, after Edmonton. All passengers enjoy no middle seats, free Wi-Fi, complimentary beer and wine served in real glassware, and premium snacks.

“With Porter, Calgarians can now also enjoy a new level of generosity and thoughtful service that is non-existent today in economy air travel,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “We are offering a higher level of economy service at highly competitive fares and are changing the way people think about economy air travel. Porter provides more value for your money than with any other airline.”

Passengers can also choose the new all-inclusive PorterReserve fare option that includes features such as dedicated check-in, extra legroom, and checked baggage, included in one bundled price. For travellers who want to choose which features matter most to them, PorterClassic offers perks available for purchase à la carte.

Porter has up to 100 E195-E2 aircraft on order, providing the ability to operate throughout North America, including destinations across Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean. The airline also serves a regional network of more than 20 destinations on its De Havilland Dash 8-400 fleet, operating from a base at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

Flights are now available for booking at www.flyporter.com and with travel agents. Porter Escapes vacation packages will be available soon. New routes will be announced regularly.
