Porter Airlines is a Toronto-based airline that connects passengers to more than 20 cities across Canada and the US. In April, Porter will launch daily flights from Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) to three destinations in Western Canada.

Porter Routes

The new, daily flights will include Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG). These will be operated with 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. These feature 132 Economy Class seats in a 2-2 configuration (meaning no one is stuck in a middle seat on any Porter flight).

Porter promises that all passengers receive “celebrity treatment with Porter’s elevated economy experience.” This includes free Wi-Fi, a selection of premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware. Extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh meals are available with the all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or can be purchased à la carte with PorterClassic fares.

Kevin Jackson, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Porter Airlines, said:

Montréal has been an important part of Porter’s network since 2006, and our presence continues to grow. We’re building out YUL with popular destinations and strategic partnerships, so travelers can connect coast-to-coast with an unmatched elevated economy experience.”

Anthony’s Take: I’ve never flown Porter, but they came on my radar when they recently announced service to Tampa. The carrier continues to expand and will hopefully continue to put some price pressure on Air Canada and WestJet, which seem to have really expensive fares.
