Porter Airlines is expanding its Porter Pass program to reflect its growing North America network with new options for travellers. 

A Porter Pass gives frequent travellers on particular routes or within regions a simple and cost-effective way to purchase up to 100 flight credits at a set price for travel over the course of one year.

Six new and expanded Porter Passes are now available to passengers, based primarily from the Eastern Canada Triangle of Toronto (Billy Bishop and Pearson), Ottawa and Montreal.

New and expanded Passes include:

  • Western Canada Triangleto six Porter destinations across four western provinces:
    • Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg
  • Florida Triangle to five Porter destinations in the Sunshine State:
    • Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Miami, Orlando and Tampa
  • Western U.S. Triangle to three Porter destinations in the U.S.:
    • Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco
  • Northeast U.S. Triangleto four Porter destinations in Northeast U.S.:
    • Boston, Chicago, New York-Newark, Washington D.C.
  • Everywhere (Canada) for travel between Porter’s 21 Canadian destinations
  • Everywhere (North America) for travel between Porter’s 33 North American destinations

These new passes complement 12 existing Porter Pass options, which include popular choices like Triangle Commuter (Toronto-Ottawa/Montréal), Toronto-New York City, Triangle Atlantic Canada (Toronto, Ottawa and/or Montréal-six Atlantic destinations).

“Porter is now an airline that stretches from coast to coast across North America, with more passengers than ever choosing our elevated economy experience,” said Edmond Eldebs, senior vice-president and chief commercial officer at Porter. “Our improved Porter Pass program gives frequent travellers great value with the opportunity to lock in a special fare for a 12-month period and customize their experience to make flying work for them.”

Passengers can also now choose to take advantage of Porter’s all-inclusive elevated economy options with the PorterReserve Porter Pass.

Along with PorterClassic inclusions like free beer and wine, no middle seats, and fast and free WiFi on all Embraer E195-E2 routes, PorterReserve passengers have access to priority check-in, ticketing flexibility and extra legroom seats.

Premium pre-mixed cocktails and fresh, healthy meals are also standard on longer routes.

Updates to Porter’s online booking portal also make it easier for passengers to purchase and redeem Porter Pass flight credits.

Using Uplift, passengers can now purchase a Porter Pass in installments with financing options available.

Passengers can purchase 10, 20, 50 or 100 flight credits at once for a fixed price.

Packages of 20 or more are transferable among individuals.
