After a full year-and-a-half of waiting! ✈️
Buckle up, Canada, because Porter Airlines has finally announced when their planes are returning to the skies.
The airline's first flight back since cancelling service in March 2020 will be on September 8, 2021, and they'll continue service to a select number of Canadian cities in the following weeks.
Flights from Ottawa, Montreal and Thunder Bay to Toronto will begin on September 8, followed by flights from Quebec City to Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal to Halifax, Moncton to Ottawa and Halifax to St. John's.
Next, flights to the United States begin on September 17, and include New York (Newark), Boston, Chicago (Midway) and Washington (Dulles) to Toronto. The full schedule is available on Porter's website.
"Flights to other year-round destinations normally operated by Porter are currently available for booking and set to resume as of Oct. 6," the company said in a press release. "Service is returning based on anticipated passenger demand, with frequency and markets increasing over time."
Any tickets bought before July 20 — for travel through to December 15 — will be fully refundable as well, Porter says, in order to "provide flexibility and give travellers peace of mind" when booking their next trip.
