The lack of airline competition in Canada has kept our airline prices a little more inflated than our neighbours down south. But I can’t help but think that even if there was more competition, the prices may not even change anyway. Porter Airlines may not be a major airline on a grand scale, but they do provide a great service and does add to the competition.
Below is a list of current destinations that serviced by Porter Airlines:
- Toronto Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ)
- Halifax Halifax Stanfield International Airport Focus City (YHZ)
- Montreal Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL)
- Ottawa Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Focus City (YOW)
- Moncton Greater Moncton International Airport (YQM)
- Quebec City Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB)
- St. John’s St. John’s International Airport (YYT)
- Sault Ste. Marie Sault Ste. Marie Airport (YAM)
- Sudbury Greater Sudbury Airport (YSB)
- Timmins Timmins Victor M. Power Airport (YTS)
- Thunder Bay Thunder Bay International Airport (YQT)
- Windsor Windsor Airport (YQG)
- Mont Tremblant Rivière Rouge – Mont Tremblant International Airport (YTM)
- Stephenville Stephenville International Airport (YJT)
- Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
- Chicago Chicago Midway Airport (MDW)
- Newark Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
- Washington D.C. Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)
- Burlington Burlington International Airport (BTV)
- Myrtle Beach Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR)
I understand that Porter airplanes will not stretch very far, so they will be concentrated mostly within the Toronto area vicinity. Hopefully expansion plans are in the works, because there is a larger market share to be had.
Other destinations in from the United States that are apparently being considered are: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. I believe that those would be great destinations. Get it done!
In Canada, I believe that Winnipeg is worth a look if it can be stretch that far.
