Porter Airlines is significantly increasing flight frequencies on its Toronto–Montreal and Toronto–Ottawa routes.

Flights between Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA) and Montreal will double by 6 May, to as many as 18 roundtrips each weekday from the current level of nine. An initial increase to 14 daily roundtrips takes place on 14 April. On the TCCA–Ottawa route, the number of roundtrips increases to 14 from ten on 30 April. Weekend service is also increasing on both routes.

“With peak-time flights regularly operating at capacity on our busiest routes, the added flights are necessary for meeting the obvious passenger demand,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “We’re giving Porter customers what they’ve asked for, with more flights at times that matter to them on these crucial routes.”

Passengers can now also fly further and to more destinations by booking connecting flights on Porter, with service available beginning 30 March. The network will be strengthened with 10 new city pairs that initially create various new routes among New York, Chicago, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City and Thunder Bay.
