“Porter Airlines Introduces New Routes Between Montreal and California”

by Alice

Porter Airlines, a prominent Canadian carrier, is set to enhance travel options between California’s major airports and Montreal with the launch of new routes this summer.

Commencing on June 27, Porter Airlines will inaugurate the Montreal to Los Angeles route with four weekly flights. Subsequently, on June 28, travelers can embark on Porter’s three-times-weekly service from Montreal to San Francisco.


These seasonal routes are scheduled to operate until October 26, offering passengers additional travel options. Porter Airlines will compete directly with Air Canada, which currently provides up to three daily flights between both California airports and Montreal.


Kevin Jackson, President of Porter Airlines, highlighted the airline’s commitment to providing passengers with an exceptional travel experience. “Passengers can now more easily travel across the continent in style with Porter’s unmatched elevated economy experience,” Jackson stated. He further emphasized the connectivity offered by Porter’s strategic partnerships, enabling travelers to access destinations worldwide.


The newly introduced flights will utilize Porter’s Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, featuring a 2-2 seating configuration and accommodating only 132 passengers. Travelers will enjoy complimentary snacks, beer, wine, and Wi-Fi onboard. Additionally, passengers booking “PorterReserve” fares will benefit from upfront seating with extra legroom and complimentary inflight meals for the approximately 5.5-hour flight.

Founded in 2006 as a domestic-only airline, Porter Airlines has expanded its operations beyond Canada, with recent successes including year-round flights from Toronto to Los Angeles and San Francisco launched in January. Moreover, Porter Airlines has established a codeshare partnership with Alaska Airlines, facilitating seamless connections for travelers across West Coast-focused hubs.

The announcement of these new routes coincides with the recent cessation of operations by rival airline and startup, Lynx Air. Lynx Air, which primarily operated out of Toronto and Montreal, offered transborder flights to various U.S. cities, including Las Vegas, Tampa, and Phoenix.
