The Ottawa 2017 Bureau and Mayor Jim Watson, in collaboration with lead partner CIBC, are thrilled to welcome Porter Airlines as the Official Canadian Airline for Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations in the nation’s capital.
“As the nation’s capital, Ottawa will be at the center of celebrations for Canada’s 150th birthday,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Porter proudly embodies the modernity and founding spirit of Canada, so this partnership is a perfect fit for us.”
Porter will provide flights for artists, contests and promotions, as well as collaborate with Ottawa 2017 on pageantry items at the Ottawa International Airport and other marketing initiatives. Additionally, the airline company will add the Ottawa 2017 logo (below) to the exterior of all of its aircraft and two planes in the Porter fleet will have their tails wrapped with the colourful look of the celebration.
Canada’s 150th celebrations will offer Canadians and visitors from around the world an exceptional and memorable year of exciting experiences while bringing a record number of visitors to Ottawa in 2017 to celebrate this important milestone for our country.
