Porter Airlines is launching seasonal service to Burlington, Vermont in December, expanding its U.S. network and adding a new destination for passengers looking to vacation on the ski hills.
The airline will operate twice-weekly round-trip flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (IATA code YTZ) to Burlington International Airport (BTV), beginning on December 15 and continuing until April 8.
“Our new service to Vermont is a perfect complement to our current winter schedule already featuring prime destinations such as Mont Tremblant and Quebec City,” says Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Burlington offers access to an incredible array of spectacular ski hills, and a vibrant community to explore.”
The Burlington schedule includes weekly round-trips on Thursdays and Sundays, with the exception of long weekends which offer Thursday and Monday round-trip options. One-way fares start from $99 plus applicable fees and taxes.
“This is a great partnership that will boost tourism in Vermont and provide an economic boost to our ski areas,” says Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.
Special Porter Airlines ski packages from Stowe Mountain Resort, Jay Peak, Smugglers Notch and Sugarbush will be offered at the Ski, Snowboard & Travel show in Toronto (which ends on October 16), and at www.skivermont.com in the coming week.
Porter Airlines operates a fleet of more than 20 Bombardier Q400 and Q400 NextGen turboprop regional airliners.
