Porter Airlines on Sept. 7 inaugurated its non-stop service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG). Flights between the provincial capitals begin with two daily round trips.

The Winnipeg-Toronto Pearson route operates with Porter's new 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, featuring a two-by-two configuration with no middle seats and category-leading fuel efficiency. 

The service also connects to Porter's Eastern Canada network out of Toronto-Pearson, including Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa and St. John's.
