Porter Airlines has established an aircraft maintenance base at Greater Sudbury Airport. This development contributes to Porter servicing its fleet of 29 Bombardier Q400 aircraft and creates eight full-time positions at the airport.
“Sudbury’s location, access to a deep talent pool and cooperative airport and government partners contributed to our decision to open a maintenance base here,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “This investment demonstrates our long-term commitment to the community.”
The airline currently operates up to three daily roundtrip flights between Sudbury and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Porter is making significant investments in Northern Ontario this year, including opening a base for pilots and flight attendants in Thunder Bay.
