Porter Airlines has welcomed a new connection between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and St. John’s International Airport (YYT). The new service will be operated with the airline’s Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

Introducing the Toronto Pearson-St. John’s route will connect Porter’s passengers with the airline’s new Western Canada destinations, including Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg.

“We are delighted that Porter’s direct route from St. John’s to Toronto-Pearson has officially launched,” said Dennis Hogan, Chief Executive Officer, St. John’s International Airport Authority. “This route, which uses the new Embraer aircraft, demonstrates Porter’s confidence in St. John’s as a key market, and we thank them for their continued partnership.”

“St. John’s is now connected coast to coast with Porter, including access to Toronto’s two airports,” added Kevin Jackson, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Porter Airlines. “Passengers on all flights receive the elevated level of service they’re used to from Porter, with genuine hospitality, no middle seats, free beer and wine served in glassware, and premium snacks.

“With the Embraer 195-E2, we’re adding free, fast Wi-Fi for everyone and fresh meal options. This is an economy travel experience that no other airline in North America provides,” said Jackson.
