Porter supports U.S. customs pre-clearance at Billy Bishop
Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines, has released the following statement supporting the announcement by the Canadian and U.S. governments that Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is a priority location for U.S. Customs Preclearance:
“Porter has supported U.S. Customs Preclearance at Billy Bishop Airport for some time. As the sixth-busiest airport in Canada for U.S. departures, this service will benefit more than 400,000 Porter passengers travelling to the U.S. each year through Billy Bishop.
“Porter can better serve our existing U.S. destinations, enhance interline partnerships, and consider new destinations that do not have inbound customs facilities.
“Billy Bishop is a logical addition to the existing U.S. Customs Preclearance program. Canadian and American officials worked hard to finalize this agreement. We thank both governments for making it a priority.”
