Porter Airlines officially returned to Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) on Monday (Sept. 13) with service to Ottawa, Montreal and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) also returned with service to Billy Bishop.
All of this takes place almost 18 months after suspending flights due to COVID-19 public health and travel restrictions.
Porter flights initially restarted on Sept. 8, with destinations being progressively added over the next month. (The initial flight schedule, including flight frequency, can be found at www.flyporter.com).
“We’re excited to be returning to Atlantic Canada and Quebec City, reuniting with our passengers and team members,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines. “We’ll be expanding service to even more destinations in the coming weeks."
Porter says it has strengthened its existing standards with a focus on high levels of sanitization in order to protect the health of its passengers and team members.
More information about the Healthy Flights program can be found on Porter’s website. In addition, Porter has also introduced a COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for its team members.
