Created to sell unique vacation packages paired exclusively with Porter Airlines flights, travellers can enjoy a wide variety of flight and hotel combinations, all carefully curated to provide a premium travel experience for exceptional value.
"Passengers familiar with the Porter Airlines experience will recognize the commitment to providing a convenient and refined approach to travel," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Escapes. "Porter Escapes does all of the legwork for you – selecting the best flights and pairing them with a range of recommended hotels and an exciting menu of leisure options, tailored to your personal preferences."
Packages are available in each of the 19 Porter Airlines destinations and include flights and accommodation, with additional a-la-carte offerings available in some markets, like a New York CityPASS, providing access to landmark attractions. New York packages also come with a concierge service, allowing travellers to book theatre tickets, sporting events or dinner reservations through a dedicated phone number during the course of their stay.
Custom ski options are also available in Mont Tremblant, the Charlevoix region adjacent to Québec City and throughout the state of Vermont.
"Porter is known for providing an unparalleled level of customer service and a premium travel experience," said Deluce. "We've applied the same philosophy to Porter Escapes, providing an end-to-end travel package with a Porter seal of approval, and that has a lot of value for people."
Travellers can explore Porter Escapes at www.porterescapes.com, with first departures available on Jan. 14. Porter Escapes packages will be available through travel agents in early 2013.
