The Montreal-Halifax route will operate year-round with up to two daily non-stop roundtrip flights, increased from four weekly flights. This service also makes possible one daily roundtrip flight between St. John's and Montreal, connecting in Halifax.

Daily service from Moncton to Ottawa, continuing to Porter's downtown base at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport offers increased travel options. Porter is offering one daily roundtrip flight, plus two roundtrips on Sunday, up from four weekly flights. The summer schedule on this route, beginning June 27, includes a seasonal increase with up to two daily roundtrip flights
