The new schedule includes one additional roundtrip each weekday in the afternoon, as well as a further roundtrip on Sunday.

"Boston continues to exceed our expectations," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "This expansion gives business travelers a more flexible schedule, which builds on the convenience of Toronto City Airport's downtown location and Porter's premium service model."

Since Porter began flying to Boston on September 14, 2009, the service has been a growing success. The schedule started with three daily roundtrip flights, increased to four after two weeks and is expanding to five. The complete Boston schedule now includes five daily roundtrip flights during the week, two roundtrip flights on Saturday and four roundtrip flights on Sunday.

"We are pleased that Porter Airlines continues to experience success at Boston Logan International Airport," said Edward Freni, director of aviation for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and operates Logan. "Porter service to Toronto City Airport gives New Englanders easy access to downtown."

Increased frequency also improves the number of available connecting flights to destinations such as Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Thunder Bay and Sudbury.
