Porter Airlines including fuel cost in base fares



    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is including the cost of fuel
in its advertised base fares effective September 19, better reflecting the
final cost of a flight for customers.
    "We're pleased to make this change for our passengers since Porter has
always favored advertising fares in this way," said Robert Deluce, president
and CEO of Porter Airlines. "This also enhances Porter's reputation as a
service-oriented airline always looking for ways to improve the passenger
experience."
    Porter operates a fleet of fuel efficient Bombardier Q400 aircraft, which
continue to give the airline a considerable cost advantage of 30 to
40 per cent when it comes to fuel consumption against similar jet aircraft.
    Previous fuel surcharges ranged from $20 to $40, depending on the
destination.
