In August, I wrote about how Porter Airlines was launching service to several Florida cities from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Ottawa International Airport (YOW). Fights to Orlando International Airport (MCO), Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), and Tampa International Airport (TPA) launched earlier this month. Its flights to Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL) are taking off today.
Porter Airlines is a Toronto-based airline that connects passengers to 18 cities across Canada and the US. The new routes are Porter’s first to the US on its 132-seat, all-economy Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The planes offer 2-2 seating throughout, so no one is stuck in a middle seat. Free, fast WiFi, premium snacks, as well as free beer and wine are offered to all passengers. Priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are also available with certain fares or for purchase a la carte.
Kevin Jackson, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Porter Airlines, said:
Florida is a popular destination for Canadians and Fort Lauderdale is the fourth market in the state that Porter has launched this fall. We’re excited that passengers can now choose to travel in style with Porter’s unique elevated economy experience to more destinations than ever before.”
Anthony’s Take: I’ve never flown Porter, but service from Tampa puts them on my list for the future. We’re heading to Toronto next week and I’ll be flying Air Canada and WestJet (look for a head-to-head comparison coming soon).
