Porter Airlines service begins between Edmonton and Toronto Pearson

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Porter Airlines is launching its first flights between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG). Edmonton is the first destination in Alberta to be added to the airline’s network.

Flights are operated with Porter’s new Embraer E195-E2 jets. A 132-seat, two-by-two configuration gives every passenger more space thanks to no middle seat.

All travellers can enjoy Porter’s great passenger experience, including complimentary beer and wine in real glassware, free premium snacks, and free wifi. Flights between Toronto and Edmonton also have fresh, healthy meals, and cocktails available, either as part of the all-inclusive PorterReserve fare or for purchase à la carte with PorterClassic.

“The Toronto-Edmonton route is an opportunity for us to introduce Porter’s elevated economy travel experience to the Edmonton community,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer with Porter Airlines. “What Porter offers sets us apart from other airlines in North America by treating economy passengers with a level of respect and service that they won’t find anywhere else. ”

“We are proud to welcome our newest airline partner, Porter Airlines, to the Edmonton region. Their growing network of destinations and their approach to innovating the in-flight experience for passengers is a reflection of their ongoing commitment to the travel industry. Porter’s unique and tailored service offerings will provide travellers with a comfortable and modern journey, and we’re proud to be part of their launch into the region and look forward to a strong partnership,” says Myron Keehn, President & CEO of Edmonton International Airport (YEG).

Service on the Toronto Pearson-Edmonton route begins with one daily, non-stop return flight, increasing to three daily flights by May 1.

Edmonton is the latest addition to Porter’s E195-E2 network, with Ottawa, Montreal, and Vancouver having started earlier this month. Service to Calgary and Halifax also begin later this month.
