Porter Airlines’ return to service was a milestone yesterday as the carrier now offers flights to its 18 destinations year round.
Yesterday saw the first flights since the pandemic closed in Fredericton, Saint John, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins and Windsor.
Porter began his comeback on September 8, and destinations have been steadily added over the past month. The initial flight schedule can be viewed at www.flyporter.com.
“This is an important step in our recovery as we return to all of our markets year round,” said Michael Deluce, President and CEO. “We look forward to seeing more of our passengers in these destinations. Over 1,000 Porter’s team members are now at work to support these efforts, as we focus on recalling our full complement and adding additional flights in the months to come. “
Porter says it has bolstered its existing standards by emphasizing high levels of disinfection to protect the health of passengers and crew. More information about the Healthy Flights program can be found on the Porter’s website.
Passengers can book a flight with the full refund option for $ 40 plus tax. This allows customers to receive a refund, including base fare, taxes, and fees, if their flight is canceled early for any reason.
