Porter Airlines has launched three new routes between Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and Boston, New York-Newark and Thunder Bay, providing convenient travel links for the region.

The new routes are part of Porter's broader expansion plan in Ottawa and its commitment to the region, including new maintenance hangars that are currently under construction at YOW. 

These will serve as a primary maintenance facility for the airline's new E195-E2 fleet.

Porter is the only airline providing year-round daily direct flights to Boston and Thunder Bay from Ottawa.

The new daily non-stop routes are served by 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft.

Introductory roundtrip fares
(including taxes and fees)
start at:

Boston (BOS)
1 daily
New York-Newark (EWR)

Thunder Bay (YQT)

"This builds on our already extensive network in Eastern Canada and substantially increases the number of destinations served directly from Ottawa. Porter connects passengers coast-to-coast, with the level of service and generosity that economy travellers deserve," said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, Porter Airlines.

A number of one-stop connecting routes are also created with the introduction of these flights. 

Porter currently operates eight non-stop routes from Ottawa International Airport, with Charlottetown scheduled to become the ninth on May 17.
