Porter inaugurates Montréal to Edmonton service

i By May 1, 2024 No Comments

Porter Airlines has added its second Western Canada destination from Montréal, today inaugurating service between Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Edmonton International Airport (YEG).

The new route starts with daily roundtrip flights operated on the 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. Flight amenities include free WiFi onboard, and a two-by-two seat configuration, meaning there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.

Porter offers an elevated onboard service for all passengers, including a selection of complimentary premium snacks and free beer and wine served in glassware. An expedited airport experience, ticketing flexibility, priority check-in, extra legroom seats, fresh, healthy meals and premium pre-mixed cocktails are part of the all-inclusive PorterReserve fare, and available à la carte with PorterClassic.

Montréal is a gateway to European destinations such as Rome, Amsterdam and Lisbon, through Porter’s partnership with Air Transat. These connecting itineraries may be purchased as a single itinerary that includes seamless baggage transfers.

Service between Montréal and Vancouver was inaugurated in April, with Montréal-Calgary flights starting later this month. The launch of these three new western routes means that Porter will operate eight non-stop routes out of Montréal. Porter also has existing daily flights connecting Edmonton with Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa.

“Porter’s network continues to grow, with more nonstop service connecting Eastern and Western Canada than ever before. This is the second of three new connections between Montréal and the west launching this spring, which means passengers have more opportunity to enjoy Porter’s elevated economy experience,” says Kevin Jackson, president, Porter Airlines.

“We are excited for Porter’s new route from YEG to Montréal, a top Canadian destination for business and leisure travelers to visit or access the airline’s extensive Eastern Canadian network. Porter Airlines has been enthusiastically welcomed to the Edmonton region since becoming YEG’s newest airline partner in 2023. Porter’s continued expansion of non-stop routes from YEG demonstrates its commitment to connecting travelers to and from our region,” said Myron Keehn, president and CEO, Edmonton International Airport.
