“Atlantic Canada is an important market that Porter has served since our first year in operation,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Saint John is a welcome addition to our network and we look forward to providing travellers with Porter’s refined customer service and competitive fares.”
Saint John Airport welcomed the announcement as another important option for its customers.
“The Saint John Airport serves the air travel needs of 300,000 residents, and in our ongoing efforts to provide excellent service for the present and future needs of our travelers, we are thrilled to announce the addition of Porter Airlines to our growing family of airline partners,” said Saint John Airport president and CEO Derrick Stanford. “We are doing everything we can to enhance both business and leisure passenger experience and convenience for our loyal customers, as well as visitors to our region.”
“Porter Airlines’ new service to Saint John reinforces their success at YOW,” said Mark Laroche, president and CEO of the Ottawa International Airport Authority. “As YOW’s third-largest carrier, this new route is a testament to Porter’s impressive ability to meet passenger demand in unserved markets.”
The Bay of Fundy is a must-see in Saint John. Twice daily, one hundred billion tons of water pours into the bay from the Atlantic Ocean, raising the water level by four stories. Visitors will find a combination of historic charm and lively nightlife as the downtown comes to life with galleries, theatre and street festivals.
Porter also announced new service for Fredericton, N.B., beginning on Sept. 12.
