Porter Airlines has added its second Western Canada destination from Montréal, inaugurating service between Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG).

The new route starts with daily roundtrip flights operated on the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

In addition to fast and free WiFi, Porter passengers will enjoy a two-by-two configuration on board, meaning that there are no middle seats.

“Porter's network continues to grow, with more nonstop service connecting Eastern and Western Canada than ever before," shared Kevin Jackson, president.

According to Jackson, this is the second of three new connections between Montréal and the west launching this spring, giving passengers more opportunity to enjoy Porter’s elevated economy experience.

Porter's "genuine hospitality" continues

Porter says it offers genuine hospitality and an elevated onboard service for all passengers, including a selection of complimentary premium snacks and free beer and wine served in glassware. 

An expedited airport experience, ticketing flexibility, priority check-in, extra legroom seats, fresh, healthy meals, and premium pre-mixed cocktails are part of the all-inclusive PorterReserve fare, and available à la carte with PorterClassic.

According to Porter, Montréal's partnership with Air Transat makes it a convenient gateway to European destinations like Rome, Amsterdam, and Lisbon.  

These connecting itineraries may be purchased as a single itinerary that includes baggage transfers.

Service between Montréal and Vancouver was inaugurated in April, with Montréal-Calgary flights starting later this month. 

With the launch of these three new western routes, Porter said it will operate eight non-stop routes out of Montréal.

Porter also has existing daily flights connecting Edmonton with Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa.
