Porter Airlines to increase capacity on three Halifax routes

Due to strong East Coast demand, Porter Airlines says they are increasing capacity on three Halifax routes this spring.

Starting March 31, operating on the Embraer E195-E2, the route between Halifax and Ottawa will have three daily, roundtrip flights.

The route between Halifax and St. John’s as well as Montreal, will operate with two daily roundtrips, increasing to three, in May.

“We’re seeing continuing strong demand for Porter’s unique product across Eastern Canada. Increasing capacity in these markets from Halifax will provide more access for passengers looking to travel with ease across our full North American network,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “Porter has been serving Halifax since 2007, and this reaffirms our ongoing commitment to the airport and the community.

Porter said the number of passengers will increase from 78 up to 132 and their level of service will continue to be elevated with free wine, beer and WiFi, as well as premium snacks.
