It might be time to start planning your next vacation because Porter Airlines flights are about to start running again. The Toronto-based airline has revealed that its planes will be returning to the skies on August 31. You'll be able to jet off to all destinations offered by the company.

On June 29, Porter Airlines announced on its website that flights would be resumed on the last day of August.

In an email to Narcity, the airline said that this new launch date would include all destinations. 

However, two of the airline's seasonal destinations have been cancelled for 2020.

Muskoka, ON, and Stephenville, NL, will not be offered this year due to service postponement.

Initially, the company had planned to resume business at the end of July. However, due to continued travel restrictions, the date has now been pushed to a month later.

"We want to see our planes in the sky as soon as possible and are actively working to prepare for our resumption of service," the update read.

"However, the ongoing uncertainty presented by government travel restrictions, including border closures, is impacting our ability to operate flights."

The airline offers flights across Canada as well as the United States.

Change and cancellation fees on tickets purchased between now and August 31 will be waived in order to offer more flexibility to travellers.

There will also be enhanced health and safety measures put in place once the flights resume.

Some airlines are already preparing to end social distancing on flights and resume meal service.

WestJet and Air Canada have both announced that social distancing will no longer be taking place on flights effective July 1.

Air Canada also plans to resume meal service on select routes.
