Porter reaches 1 million Thunder Bay passengers, adds sixth flight

TORONTO — Porter Airlines is increasing the number of flights between Thunder Bay and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, up to six daily roundtrips, effective Sept. 6.

Three direct flights are available from Thunder Bay to both Ottawa and Montreal, after a short stop in Toronto. Passengers no longer have to deplane in Toronto and change aircraft, reducing travel time by up to two hours.

Thunder Bay was Porter’s initial destination in Northern Ontario and continues to attract new passengers, said President and CEO Robert Deluce. “Since we began Thunder Bay service in 2009, passengers have continued to embrace our convenient schedule and affordable fares,” he said. “The additional roundtrip flight provides even more options and convenience for travellers.”

Porter’s one-millionth Thunder Bay passenger on yesterday’s flight #634 was presented with a pair of roundtrip tickets to any Porter destination.

“There are many loyal Thunder Bay passengers, as well as new ones trying Porter every day,” adds Deluce. “Our entire team is grateful for each of the one-million trips people have chosen to fly with us and we are committed to providing the service they have come to expect from us.”
