Canada’s Porter Airlines is increasing its weekday round-trip flights from five to six between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport, from October 12.
Porter Airlines notes the addition of the sixth flight doubles Porter’s Toronto-Boston service from its original 2009 schedule, allowing greater same-day business travel flexibility and offering leisure travelers a wider range of departure options.
“Boston is one of our strongest markets,” says Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “By adapting to meet this increasing demand, we are continuing to provide the level of service and convenience that our customers have come to expect.”
“We are pleased that Porter is adding a sixth weekday flight from Boston Logan to Toronto City Airport,” says Ed Freni, director of aviation for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and operates Boston Logan International Airport. “Their service has grown steadily in two years and giving passengers choice and frequency helps our customers and competition keeps fares low.”
From October 12, Porter’s new weekday schedule between Toronto City Airport (YTZ) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will its flights departing YTZ at 6:45 a.m., 8:55 a.m. (the new flight), 11:20 a.m., 2:30 p.m., 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Porter Airlines’ flights will leave BOS at 6:40 a.m., 9:05 a.m., 11:15 a.m. (the new flight), 1:45 p.m., 5:10 p.m. and 7:35 p.m.
The airline’s weekend schedule remains at two Saturday roundtrips and five on Sunday.
Porter says its additional YTZ-BOS service also improves the number of available connecting flights at YTZ to destinations such as Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Windsor, Sault Ste. Marie, and Sudbury.
The carrier, which is based at Bill Bishop Toronto City Airport, is known for its high-qaulity service on the ground and in-flight. Porter’s service includes complimentary in-flight wine and beer, extra legroom and relaxing departure lounges.
Porter Airlines’ fleet consists of more than 20 70-seat Bombardier Q400 and Q400 NextGen turboprops, featuring high cruising speed, cabin noise-reduction technology and environmentally friendly engines.
