October 23, marks 15 years since Porter Airlines first introduced its refined flying experience to all travelers.
Headquartered at Billy Bishop Airport in downtown Toronto, Porter emphasizes speed, convenience and service, including complimentary wine and beer served in glassware for all passengers. Porter has elevated the flying experience, appealing to business and leisure flyers alike, while providing competitive and affordable travel options.
In 2020, Porter temporarily suspended operations due to COVID-19 and resumed flights on September 8, 2021. Now flying to all of its year-round destinations, Porter is focused on restoring the airline’s high-frequency service as the industry continues to recover. Today, approximately 88% of team members have been recalled to work.

In July, Porter announced it is extending its award-winning service to destinations throughout North America with the introduction of up to 80 state-of-the-art, fuel-efficient Embraer E195-E2 aircraft into its fleet.
The planes have transcontinental range and will enter into service starting in the second half of 2022, focusing on introducing routes from Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and Toronto Pearson International Airport. This investment enhances competition, elevates passenger service levels and creates as many as 6,000 new jobs based on 80 aircraft deliveries.
Porter will also continue serving a network of regional markets from its existing hub at Billy Bishop Airport.
