Porter Airlines begins terminal improvements at Toronto City Centre Airport



    TORONTO, Oct. 17 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is commencing a project to
improve its terminal facilities at Toronto City Centre Airport. The project
will result in enhanced customer lounge space and create additional airport
gate capacity to accommodate the delivery of new Bombardier Q400 aircraft.
    "Porter is continuing its successful growth with the commencement of
these required improvements to our terminal facilities," said Robert Deluce,
president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "We will maintain a full level of
customer service throughout the construction necessary to improve our
passenger terminal.
    "We're pleased to be adding new capacity and destinations at a time when
many carriers are reducing service."
    Porter plans to operate 20 aircraft within two years and serve additional
destinations, such as Boston, Washington and Philadelphia. Service to Chicago
begins Nov. 12.
    Passenger areas in the improved terminal will continue featuring leather
lounge seating, wireless Internet access, beverages, snacks and computer work
stations. These services are provided on a complimentary basis to all
