Oct. 6, 2008, Toronto, Ont. – Porter Airlines, which flies out of Toronto's City
Centre Airport, says it will add Chicago to its growing list of
destinations, beginning Nov. 12.
A schedule of three daily round-trip flights per weekday and two
each on Saturday and Sunday will be in effect until Jan. 7.
After that, once Porter's eighth aircraft is put into service, the airline plans six round-trip flights every weekday, plus two on
Saturday and three on Sunday.
Introductory fares start at $149 one-way, plus fees and taxes,
the airline says.
Porter will use Chicago Midway International Airport, located
about 15 kilometres from the city's downtown.
The airline, founded in 2006, says it will add more U.S.
destinations including Boston, Washington and Philadelphia as
additional aircraft are delivered over the next 18 months.
Porter currently serves Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City,
Halifax, New York (Newark) and has seasonal flights to Mont
“We are continuing to successfully add destinations, aircraft
and employees at a time when many airlines are limiting growth
plans, cutting routes and introducing new fees,'' said Robert
Deluce, the airline's president and CEO.
