Mont-Tremblant summer flights begin on Porter Airlines

Ultimate Golf Vacations packages available

TORONTO, June 24 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines begins summer service to Mont-Tremblant and the Upper Laurentians for the first time, with two flights per week between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Mont-Tremblant International Airport. Flights continue to September 6, 2010, on Thursday and Sunday each week.

These flights improve accessibility to Tremblant and the Laurentian region.

Porter has provided winter seasonal service between Mont-Tremblant and Toronto City Airport since 2007. The announcement of summer service follows three successful winter seasons. This past year's winter schedule included as many as eight flights weekly, up from two flights in the first year of service.

"We're excited to tap into Tremblant's potential as a summer destination," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Our passengers know what the region has to offer during winter, but there is so much more to explore once the snow melts away."

The Tremblant Summer Festival, Tremblant International Blues Festival and Les Rythmes Tremblant are just some of the seasonal attractions. Outdoor enthusiasts can also hike, bike, golf, lounge by the lake or find other opportunities to pass the time.

Custom golf packages, including Porter flights, can be arranged by Ultimate Golf Vacations, www.ultimategolf.ca.
