Due to continuing COVID-19 travel restrictions, Porter Airlines has extended its temporary service suspension until 15DEC.
That will make it nine months since the Toronto-based, short-haul airline temporarily stopped operations 21MAR.
“The flare up of COVID-19 cases in certain markets during the last month dampened any expectation of changes to government restrictions that will enable us to begin flying again in November,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines. “The federal government is indicating that they need more confidence about what course the pandemic will take before restrictions are reconsidered. We hope that lifting of travel restrictions will soon be possible given evolving technology, such as rapid testing, and health and safety investments that the travel industry is making.”
Porter is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked through 15DEC, including Porter Escapes vacation packages.
