Canada’s Porter Airlines has launched its latest E195-E2 route from Ottawa International Airport to Edmonton International Airport. The new route will begin on 4 October, with one daily roundtrip flight operated by the aircraft. This is the second Ottawa route to be launched by the airline.

This route complements Porter’s existing presence from Ottawa to Western Canada, including non-stop services from Ottawa and Vancouver and additional connecting options via Toronto-Pearson to Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.

This new route adds to Porter’s ongoing expansion throughout Canada. The regional airline also operates multiple non-stop daily flights between Edmonton and Toronto-Pearson.

“The addition of this route provides a higher level of connectivity across our network between Eastern and Western Canada,” said Kevin Jackson, Porter’s Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “We welcome the opportunity to provide even more travellers across the country with an elevated economy experience that they won’t find with any other airline.”
