Porter Airlines to Launch New Service Between Miami and Toronto
Starting December 12, 2023, Porter Airlines will launch new nonstop service between Miami and Toronto. The route will operate daily with a 132-seat Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.
On Thursday (August 24, 2023), Miami International Airport (MIA) announced that Porter Airlines will start first-ever flights between Miami and Toronto Pearson International Airport starting December 12, 2023. The nonstop route will operate daily with a 132-seat all Economy Class state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 jet. Onboard, guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi and a selection of premium snacks, along with complimentary beer and wine served in glassware. Customers booking PorterReserve tickets will also enjoy priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh healthy meals. These additional services and benefit can also be purchased á la carte with PorterClassic fares.
In Thursday’s announcement, Miami-Dade County’s Mayor, Daniella Levine Cava, said,
“We are excited to welcome Porter Airlines for the first time ever at Miami International Airport and open our arms to more Canadian visitors to Miami-Dade County. At 603,000 passengers in 2022, Canada was already MIA’s 10th-busiest international market last year, and travel between Canada and MIA is up a whopping 44% so far this year. I look forward to seeing Porter Airlines’ daily service from Toronto strengthen that thriving connection between Canada and Miami-Dade County even more.” Also commenting on the launch of Miami-Toronto service, Porter Airlines’ EVP and Chief Commercial Officer, Kevin Jackson, said,
“Canadians are used to flying to Florida, but not like this. Porter’s all-economy onboard service is unmatched by any other carrier in North America. Whether that’s free Wi-Fi, no middle seats, free beer and wine alongside premium snacks, or fresh, healthy food, Porter is challenging the industry’s definition of economy air travel. We believe that time onboard our aircraft is just as important as at the destination.
