Porter Airlines is now selling tickets starting at CAD $95+ each way between NYC and Toronto.
Some more details:
-Service will start 03/31.
-Porter flies into Newark (so we will hopefully see a strong reaction from Continental).
-Porter serves Toronto City Centre Airport (YTZ), not Pearson (YYZ).
Toronto City Centre Airport is located on Bathurst, in downtown Toronto.
“While on board, passengers enjoy complimentary premium snacks, wine and beer, a spacious cabin environment with leather upholstery, and extra legroom. All Porter passengers have access to a modern, comfortable and stylish lounge at Toronto City Centre Airport, including wireless Internet access, refreshments, and a business centre.”
-All prices on their website are in CAD.
-Porter says it will serve Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. by year’s end.
One caveat that they would rather you not know: Their only aircraft is the Bombardier Q400 twin-engine turboprop.
