In response to passenger demand, Porter Airlines is increasing the number of flights between Thunder Bay and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, up to six daily roundtrips, effective September 6, 2016. Three direct flights are available from Thunder Bay to both Ottawa and Montreal, after a short stop in Toronto. Passengers no longer have to deplane in Toronto and change aircraft, significantly reducing travel time by up to two hours.
Thunder Bay was Porter’s initial destination in Northern Ontario and continues to attract new passengers.
Further to the additional flight, Porter is celebrating one million passengers on the Thunder Bay route. To commemorate the milestone, the airline’s one-millionth passenger departing Thunder Bay was presented with a pair of roundtrip tickets to any Porter destination.
“Porter has played a vital role in connecting Thunder Bay to downtown Toronto and select destinations throughout Canada and the United States,” said Ed Schmidtke, president and Chief Executive Officer, Thunder Bay Airport Authority. “With Porter’s help, Thunder Bay is better connected to business, culture, vacation fun and family.”
Porter is the only airline out of Billy Bishop operating flights to Thunder Bay. Connecting flights via Billy Bishop are also popular for reaching many other Porter destinations.
