Porter Airlines has boosted its service between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport to 13 flights per day.
The carrier has announced it will add an extra two flights to its existing route between the two airports – one from March 26 and one from April 16 – in an attempt to meet escalating demand.
The move increases the daily roundtrip departures between Billy Bishop and Newark Liberty to as many as 13 flights, and provides a wider range of morning, afternoon and evening departures for passengers.
Robert Deluce, CEO of Porter Airlines, said: “Demand for our Toronto-New York route continues to increase and we are responding with additional flights.
“Porter offers the only service between downtown Toronto and New York, which is one of the reasons we’ve become a top choice for business and leisure travellers between the two markets.”
This winter Porter also launched a new non-stop service between Newark and Mt. Tremblant in Quebec.
The airline currently offers flights to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Moncton, Halifax, St. John’s, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins, Windsor, New York (Newark), Chicago (Midway), Boston (Logan), and has seasonal flights to Mt. Tremblant, Myrtle Beach, and Burlington.
