Porter Airlines takes delivery of its 20th Bombardier DHC-8-402 (Q400)

Porter Airlines (Toronto-City Centre) on April 22 marked the acceptance of its 20th Bombardier Aerospace DHC-8-402 (Q400). This delivery is also the 300th for the Q400 program. Both milestones were celebrated at Bombardier’s Toronto assembly facility with Porter representatives, Bombardier employees and other guests.

Acceptance of this delivery represents the completion of Porter’s original order from 2006, valued at more than $500 million USD.

Porter operates a fleet of 70-seat Q400 aircraft. Features include high cruise speed, revolutionary cabin noise-reduction technology and environmentally-friendly engines. The modern Q Series are the quietest turboprops flying today, due to the revolutionary Noise and Vibration Suppression (NVS) System.

The 20th aircraft is scheduled to enter regular passenger service May 1.
