Porter Airlines grows again with addition of 7th daily Toronto-Boston flight

TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines will be increasing weekday roundtrip flights to seven from six between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Boston's Logan International Airport, beginning April 16, 2012. 

This addition comes soon after adding a sixth daily flight between Toronto and Boston in October. Increased service allows greater same-day business travel flexibility and offers leisure travellers a wider range of departure options.

"The Toronto-Boston route continues to prove its popularity with passengers," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Increasing the frequency of flights ensures continued service and convenience for our passengers, two elements that have been foundations of our business for the past five years."

"We are pleased Porter will be adding a seventh  weekday flight from Boston Logan to Toronto City Airport,'' said Ed Freni, Director of Aviation for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and operates Logan. "Porter's service has grown steadily in two years and giving passengers choice and frequency helps our customers, and competition keeps fares low.''

The new weekday schedule now includes the following departure times:
