Porter Airlines on Friday (May 17) launched service between Toronto-Pearson airport (YYZ) and Québec City Jean Lesage airport (YQB), adding another route to its growing Toronto network. 

The seasonal roundtrip flights will operate daily until October 26.

Service will be operated by the brand new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, a two-by-two configuration, which means there are no middle seats. Free Wi-Fi, beer and wine (served in real glassware) and premium snacks are also available. 

PorterReserve fares offer passengers an all-inclusive economy experience, with fresh and healthy meals, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, priority check-in, and ticketing flexibility as standard. These options are available à la carte with PorterClassic fares.

Connections are available through Toronto-Pearson to Western Canada destinations Vancouver and Edmonton, providing passengers with more opportunities to experience Porter’s elevated onboard service when travelling across the country.

The new service more than doubles Porter’s capacity between the two cities, complementing existing flights between YQB and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), which are operated by the 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft.

“Québec City is a popular destination for travellers, with its rich history and culture. Porter’s new service adds more capacity on a busy seasonal route, and more opportunities for passengers to enjoy the elevated economy experience they deserve," said Kevin Jackson, president of Porter, in a press release.

The new route will be a boon for Club Med Québec Charlevoix, which is located about an hour’s drive from Quebec City,
