porterPorter Airlines is growing its operations base at Toronto City Centre Airport to accommodate increasing passenger levels as it prepares to begin service to New York and other destinations in 2008.

Construction has begun on an extended terminal, including three additional arrival and departure gates.  The project is scheduled for completion by Dec. 31, with passenger areas continuing to feature leather lounge seating, complimentary wireless Internet access, beverages and snacks, while offering greater availability of computer work stations.

Scott Associates Architects Inc. will continue the work it began on Porter's original terminal project. BECC Construction Group is the project's contractor.  
Porter's terminal investment is driven by the airline's strong financial performance, including average monthly revenue growth of over 20% since beginning flights Oct. 23, 2006.
