Elevated, effortless and eco-conscious—Porter Airlines is really putting the “e” in economy. On September 7th, Winnipeg Airports Authority’s newest airline partner will launch twice-daily service between Winnipeg Richardson International Airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport, providing another great option for travellers across Manitoba. This partnership will not only provide more choice for the community but also help grow connectivity from YWG to Porter’s Eastern Canada network out of Toronto, making it even easier to explore cities like Montreal, Halifax and St John’s. 

The Porter Difference

Porter has been flying in style since 2006 and is on a mission to bring back the glamour of travel. With Porter, every passenger gets an elevated experience. The luxe for less airline is famous for its free beer and wine served in real glassware (it actually does taste better this way!). Soft drinks, juice and hot beverages are complimentary, of course, as well as salty and sweet treats. True to its Canadian roots, the airline features quality products from north of the 49th parallel on its menu, such as craft beer and premium snacks, which include Hard Bite potato chips. 

Frequent flyers know the key to comfort on every flight is a guaranteed window or aisle seat. Porter’s solution? No middle seats! Each passenger enjoys a comfy window or aisle spot without paying extra to secure it. There are also stretch seat options for those who like a little extra leg room.

Complimentary Wi-Fi is always available when you fly any of Porter’s new E195-E2 jets. If you’re looking to get some work done or just sit back, relax and watch something on your favourite streaming platform on your device, Porter keeps you connected. 

The environment is a priority for Porter, and they exemplify this in more ways than one. For starters, they operate one of the most sustainable aircraft fleets in the world, with the Embraer E195-E2 being the most eco-friendly single-aisle aircraft. Porter also pays attention to the finer details, such as serving its meals in biodegradable packaging and reducing single-use plastics on board.

Porter Airline offers two different economy experiences, giving flexibility to each passenger’s needs. PorterReserve is an all-inclusive service for those who want a few added luxuries like early boarding, extra space, craft cocktails and fresh meals.
