Porter Airlines is a Toronto-based airline that connects passengers to more than 20 cities across Canada and the US. In March, Porter is launching daily flights to Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) from its hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). This will be Porter’s 17th route from Toronto.
The new route will be operated by an 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:
It takes something exceptional to stand out in Vegas, and we intend to do just that by bringing our elevated economy experience to this popular destination. From the runway to the Strip, passengers start their special getaway the moment they board our aircraft.”
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 put some price pressure on Air Canada and WestJet, which seem to have really expensive fares.
