Porter Airlines is deferring its resumption of flights until 29JUL, one month later than previously scheduled. 

“We want to see our planes in the sky as soon as possible and are actively working to prepare for our resumption of service. However, the ongoing uncertainty presented by government travel restrictions, including border closures, is impacting our ability to operate flights,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. 

“We are closely watching developments and know that Porter will be an important part of providing people with travel options as the economy recovers.”

Seasonal summer markets that Porter intended to serve in 2020 are being cancelled as part of this service deferral. Muskoka, Ont., and Stephenville, N.L., are the two destinations affected.

Porter says it is preparing to introduce enhanced health and safety measures for its return to service, with details to be announced closer to when flights restart.

Porter is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked through 29JUL. This also applies to Porter Escapes vacation packages.
