As of Sept. 3, Porter Airlines began flying a full schedule of seven roundtrip flights every weekday between Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA) and Newark Liberty International Airport, in Newark, N.J. In addition, Porter will operate three roundtrips on Saturdays and six on Sundays.
Porter’s September schedule includes slightly modified departure times and the restoration of late-afternoon flights in each direction that were suspended as part of the summer schedule. The airline flies from its own dedicated terminal at TCCA, close to downtown Toronto.
In other news, the airline is exercising options for two Bombardier Aerospace Q400 aircraft, an order representing aircraft number 15 and 16 in the Porter fleet, scheduled for delivery in 2009. Porter operates a 70-seat version of the Q400.
