Porter unveils new North Bay schedule, adds another Q400 to fleet

TORONTO — Porter Airlines has enhanced its daily flight schedule between North Bay and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, making it easier for business travellers from North Bay to complete a full day of meetings in Toronto.

Beginning on May 14, daily service departs North Bay on weekdays at 6:35 a.m. and arrives in Toronto at 7:25 a.m. Return flights depart at 8:45 p.m. and arrive back in North Bay at 9:37 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday return service is also available. Summer and holiday schedule times may vary. One-way fares are currently available starting at $99.

In addition, there’s a wider range of connecting flight options to a number of Porter destinations beyond Toronto, including Ottawa, Montreal, Thunder Bay, New York, Chicago and Boston. During the summer, weekday flights will also have continuing service to and from Ottawa, meaning passengers do not have to change planes in Toronto.

“We have been developing this route since Porter first came to North Bay in 2015,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines. “People have benefitted from much lower competitive airfares since that time, and now more can do so with convenient flight times.”

The news of North Bay’s flight schedule came a day after Porter announced the addition of a Q400 turboprop to its fleet, which now totals 29 aircraft. Porter exclusively flies Q400 airliners.

“The Bombardier Q400 aircraft represents the fine craftsmanship that has been the backbone of the aerospace industry in Canada for many years,” said Deluce. “As Bombardier prepares to celebrate its 75th anniversary this year, the Q400 aircraft’s performance, environmental credentials and passenger appeal continue representing hallmarks of our customer experience. These attributes have supported Porter’s network growth to 23 destinations in more than a decade of operation.”
