Porter Airlines on Wednesday (Sept. 20) launched a new service from Toronto to Victoria, BC. 

Daily flights between Toronto Pearson airport represent another link in a growing network of routes the airline has introduced this year with its new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

The 132-seat plane features a two-by-two configuration, offering all passengers no middle seats and greater personal space. Free, fast, streaming-quality Wi-Fi is also available, with the ability to watch and listen to personal subscription services on multiple devices. 

Porter's service includes complimentary beer and wine served in glassware, and free premium snacks available to all travellers. Fresh, healthy meals, pre-mixed cocktails and additional snack options are also available.

"We are now truly connecting Canada's major cities from the west with Victoria to the east in St. John's, with many points in between. There are numerous other destinations that we intend to serve across North America as additional aircraft are delivered to us through 2024."
