Porter Airlines has further expanded its Florida offering from Eastern Canada with flights from Toronto Pearson airport (YYZ) and Ottawa International (YOW), taking off for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International (FLL) for the first time Thursday (Nov. 30).
According to the airline, passengers travelling on the new routes can look forward to Porter’s elevated economy experience, including free inflight WiFi to help stay connected from take off to touchdown.
Complimentary beer, wine, and premium snacks come standard for all passengers.
All-inclusive PorterReserve fares offer priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails and fresh, healthy meals - all available à la carte to PorterClassic passengers.
Both routes begin with daily roundtrip flights operated on the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The aircraft is a two-by-two configuration, meaning there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.
For the first time, passengers can experience Porter from Fort Lauderdale to Western Canada destinations like Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, connecting via Toronto Pearson and Ottawa International, said the airline.
“Florida is a popular destination for Canadians and Fort Lauderdale is the fourth market in the state that Porter has launched this fall,” said executive Kevin Jackson, vice president and chief commercial officer at Porter. “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.
