Porter’s new restart date is now Aug. 31

TORONTO — Porter Airlines has once again delayed its return-to-service by another month, from July 29 to Aug. 31, due to ongoing government travel restrictions.

Despite this latest delay, president and CEO Michael Deluce remains hopeful that global travel will resume soon.

“Our ability to successfully relaunch service is directly tied to the lifting of travel restrictions,” he said. “We believe it is getting closer to a time when people can travel more freely and are optimistic that key border closures and mandatory quarantines will begin easing so that we can recommence operations.”

To accommodate impacted guests, Porter is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked between today and Aug. 31. This also applies to Porter Escapes vacation packages.

Details on Porter’s new Healthy Flights program, which is designed to keep both passengers and team members safe, will be shared in the coming weeks.
