TORONTO — To provide travellers with greater flexibility in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Porter Airlines is extending its travel programs so that Porter Pass holders and VIPorter loyalty members will continue to receive full value.
“The extensions to our travel programs provide the reassurance our passengers need during this uncertain time,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines. “When they are ready to return to the skies, they can resume travelling with confidence, right where they left off.”
Porter Pass offers frequent travellers prepaid tickets for a select number of one-way flights, at a discounted price. Porter Pass holders with vouchers set to expire between March 2 and July 31, 2020, now have until June 30, 2021 to use their passes. The system is automatically updated and no action is necessary. All other terms and conditions apply.

VIPorter loyalty members will maintain their current points balance. VIPorter points set to expire between March 19 and June 15, 2020, will be extended to Dec.31, 2021. Points that have already expired during this time period will be reinstated automatically. No action is required by VIPorter members.
VIPorter premium members will automatically have their current status extended until Dec. 31, 2021. Members’ 2020 qualifying spend isn’t affected by this change, so they will continue earning towards their next premium upgrade when they begin flying again this year.
Porter temporarily suspended operations on March 21, to support ongoing public health efforts to contain COVID-19. Reservations are currently being taken for Porter flights starting June 1. All new flights booked for June are fully changeable and can be cancelled without fees, to give passengers maximum flexibility as travel resumes.
