Porter Airlines launching four nonstop routes from Ottawa in spring 2023

TORONTO — Starting next spring Porter Airlines will introduce four new Canadian and U.S. routes from Ottawa International Airport.

Flights begin March 27, 2023 with daily nonstop service between Ottawa and Boston (1x daily), New York-Newark (2x daily), Quebec City (1x daily) and Thunder Bay (2x daily).

Porter’s President and CEO Michael Deluce says Porter will be the only airline providing year-round daily direct flights to Boston, Quebec City and Thunder Bay from Ottawa.

“Ottawa was our first destination when we launched in 2006, and it has always been a critical location for Porter throughout our history,” said Deluce. “The network expansion in Ottawa shows our commitment to the Ottawa-Gatineau region and its people. We expect our presence in Ottawa will continue growing.”

The new routes, on 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft, will double the number of Porter’s regional destinations served from Ottawa. Porter currently flies to Fredericton, Halifax, Moncton and Toronto City.

Porter also recently announced a new maintenance base scheduled to open at Ottawa International Airport in late 2023, and a Toronto Pearson-Ottawa route to be served with its Embraer E195-E2 aircraft beginning in February 2023.
