Canada’s Porter Airlines has expended the selection of prepaid multi-flight options available under its Porter Pass program.

Passes now cover every Porter route or region, offering greater flexibility and price-predictability for frequent travel, according to the airline.


Valid for one year from purchase, passes are available in denominations of 10, 20, 50, and 100 one-way flights. Three different package types allow for travel between Toronto and Ottawa or Montreal; within Canada; or across Porter’s entire Canadian and U.S. network.

Passes for 10 flights are reserved for individual use, while passes for 20, 50, and 100 flights can be shared among friends and colleagues. All Porter Pass flights are eligible for VIPorter frequent flyer program points and complimentary seat selection.

“After experiencing such a positive response to Porter Passes on our Toronto-Ottawa and Toronto-Montreal routes over the last two years, the same option is now available across our entire network,” says Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.

Porter Airlines' fleet, entirely composed of fast Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft, grew to 20 aircraft by April 2010 and the carrier has more Q400 NextGen aircraft on order

With a variety of network options and fare classes, small- and medium-sized businesses, students and other frequent flyers can choose a Porter Pass to meet their travel requirements, Porter Airlines says.

All Porter passengers have complimentary access to the airline’s large lounges in Toronto and Ottawa. Features include espresso in heated cups, cold beverages, snacks, Wi-Fi access and computer workstations.

Porter Airlines is Canada’s third-largest scheduled carrier not including Jazz Air LP, which flies almost entirely on behalf of Air Canada. Based at Billy Bishop Toronto City Centre Airport (which is just 10 minutes’ drive — and a 75-second ferry ride — from Toronto’s main business district), Porter has  become known since beginning operations in 2006 for offering a fast, convenient and high-service-quality travel experience.

The carrier says its premium-quality service begins on the ground with comfortable airport lounges and service-oriented team members, continuing in the air with well-appointed crew offering passengers complimentary in-flight wine, beer and premium snacks aboard Porter’s fleet of new Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft.

The airline now serves Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, St. John’s, Thunder Bay, Sudbury, New York (Newark), Chicago (Midway), Boston (Logan), and has seasonal flights to Mt. Tremblant, Quebec and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Service to Moncton, New Brunswick begins on June 25.

Porter Airlines’ VIPorter frequent flyer program offers free flights after as few as five one-way trips. Visit www.flyporter.com or call (888) 619-8622 for more information.
