Porter Airlines increases Windsor flights

TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is adding a fourth weekday roundtrip flight between Windsor International Airport and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, starting April 15, 2013.

Flights are timed to provide convenient connections in Toronto for Ottawa, Montreal, Northern Ontario, and other destinations.

"Windsor passenger numbers have really improved since we started flying there less than two years ago," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "It's a perfect example of how competition can make fares more affordable and lead to more and more people choosing to fly. This is what has made it possible for Porter to add a fourth flight for Windsor."

"We are delighted with this next step in the growth of Windsor International Airport and the continued development of our relationship with Porter Airlines," said Mayor Eddie Francis. "An extra flight connecting our city to downtown Toronto and beyond will help our local companies compete for business, create jobs and promote Windsor."

The new Windsor weekday schedule is:
