Porter adds Edmonton-Ottawa flights to E195-E2 network

Porter extends new E195-E2 service to St. John’s and Winnipeg ex YYZ

TORONTO — Porter Airlines’ new E195-E2 service connecting Toronto Pearson and St. John’s International Airport (YYT) is now up and running.

The flight to St. John’s departed last night, with the return flight to Toronto scheduled for this morning.

Kevin Jackson, Porter’s Executive VP and Chief Commercial Officer, said St. John’s passengers now have the option of using both Toronto airports. St. John’s has been part of Porter’s network since 2009, operating with De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft to Halifax, with onward service to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Ottawa and Montreal.

The new E195-E2 flight to Pearson connects with Porter’s new Western Canada destinations, including Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg.

Options for extra legroom, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are available on an all-inclusive basis with PorterReserve fares or purchased individually with PorterClassic fares.

“We are delighted that Porter’s direct route from St. John’s to Toronto-Pearson has officially launched,” said Dennis Hogan, CEO, St. John’s International Airport Authority. “This route, which uses the new Embraer aircraft, demonstrates Porter’s confidence in St. John’s as a key market.”


Today also marks the start of Porter’s nonstop service between Toronto Pearson and Winnipeg (YWG).

Flights between the provincial capitals begin with two daily round trips.

The Winnipeg-Toronto Pearson route also operates with Porter’s new E195-E2s. The service also connects to Porter’s Eastern Canada network out of Toronto-Pearson, including Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa and St. John’s.

“We’ve been eagerly counting down to Porter Airlines’ inaugural flight to Winnipeg Richardson International Airport as their arrival to our community brings several opportunities for all those who live and work here,” said Nick Hays, President and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority.
