Porter expands Toronto-Sudbury service
Oct. 26, 2011, Toronto - Porter Airlines is increasing service in the Big Nickel with the addition of a fourth daily roundtrip flight between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Sudbury, beginning Jan. 16.
Launching with a single daily flight in March 2010, this new schedule marks the third time Porter has increased service to Sudbury, responding to rising passenger demand and providing greater convenience for business and leisure travellers alike.
"By meeting passenger needs with convenient schedules and increased service, we're continuing to demonstrate our commitment to Sudbury as a valued part of the Porter network," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "The overwhelmingly positive response we're seeing from travellers is a clear indication that we're offering a desirable service within the market."
Connecting markets from Toronto include Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Windsor, Halifax, Moncton, St. John's, Boston, Chicago and New York.
"The additional service is testament to the strong support our community has shown Porter Airlines and the commitment by Porter to provide comprehensive service to northern Ontario regional markets," said Bob Johnston, Chief Executive Officer of Greater Sudbury Airport. "We are delighted that the implementation of this latest flight will facilitate same day travel to Sudbury from Toronto and other cities within their network."
Weekend service will also increase, with a second Saturday roundtrip available as of Jan. 21 and the addition of a third Sunday roundtrip starting April 22.
