Porter Airlines announced an updated for its return-to-service date in light of ongoing government travel restrictions. The new restart date is August 31, instead of the previously announced target of July 29.
“Our ability to successfully relaunch service is directly tied to the lifting of travel restrictions,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines. “We believe it is getting closer to a time when people can travel more freely and are optimistic that key border closures and mandatory quarantines will begin easing, so that we can recommence operations.”
Porter notes it will soon provide details of its new Healthy Flights program in the coming weeks. The airline is also is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked between June 29 and August 31. This also applies to Porter Escapes vacation packages.
Porter temporarily suspended operations as of March 21 based on the impact of COVID-19.
