Porter Airlines has extended its suspension of operations through 29MAR, 2021, blaming the continuing surge in COVID-19 cases and corresponding public health measures.
“With the introduction of vaccines, we are more optimistic about determining a date in the near-term to reintroduce flights than at any point since the pandemic began,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “More time is needed to assess the vaccine’s influence on current travel restrictions and when it is appropriate to begin operations again. We expect to establish a timeline for this to happen in the first part of 2021.”
Porter first suspended operations on 21MAR, 2020.
