Porter Airlines is adding daily roundtrip flights on three new non-stop routes between Montreal (YUL) and Vancouver (YVR), Calgary (YYC) and Edmonton (YEG) airports. 

The new routes will launch next spring, according to a news release issued Monday (Dec. 4). 

Service features on the routes include complimentary premium snacks, beer and wine served in glassware, and free Wi-Fi for all passengers.

The new daily roundtrip flights are operated using Porter's new 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The two-by-two configuration means there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.

The flight schedule is as follows:

The scheduled service will connect with Halifax, Toronto-Pearson, and Toronto-City through Montreal, complementing non-stop western service from Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa to each market.

Additional connections are also available through Porter's partnership with Air Transat, including regions in North America, Europe and southern destinations.

"Montreal has been an important part of Porter's network since 2006, and our presence continues to grow. We're building out YUL with popular destinations and strategic partnerships, so travellers can connect coast-to-coast with an unmatched elevated economy experience," Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Porter Airlines. 

The sky ahead

The E195-E2 aircraft has allowed Porter to expand to Central and Western Canada, and to major U.S. cities, like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and five cities in Florida.

Other potential additions to Porter’s network in the near future include Saskatoon, Regina, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Minneapolis, Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte and West Palm Beach.

Porter’s recent entry into Florida – to Tampa, Fort Myers, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami – has particularly taken off, Jackson told PAX last month.  

“On the first day we lit up Florida, revenue performance was through the roof,” he said. “It caught revenue management off guard with the volume of bookings. The demand is clearly there.”
