Canadian carrier Porter Airlines returned to the skies on September 8, 2021, almost 18 months after the airline suspended commercial operations due to the ongoing pandemic.

In a statement, Porter Airlines announced that flights to Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Thunder Bay would be the first to restart. The airline will add other Canadian destinations to its schedule within the next 10 days. 

Beginning September 17, 2021, the Canadian air carrier will resume international flights to the United States, with destinations to New York, Boston, Chicago, and Washington.

“We currently have over 900 team members who have put in countless hours to get everything ready for our return to service, with more being recalled or hired every week. Everyone at Porter is looking forward to welcoming passengers back and delivering our distinct style of service again,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.
