TORONTO, May 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is unveiling a new cookie partnership with Walkers Shortbread as its new supplier. The cookie is a signature part of Porter's premium flying experience, and Walkers is a natural fit with its great taste and commitment to quality.
Walkers was the original cookie served when Porter began flying in 2006. It is being reintroduced as of May 1.
"Porter is known for providing a distinct experience to all of our passengers," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "We are the only Canadian airline to offer Walkers Shortbread. This premium snack has been enjoyed by our passengers in the past and we know that they will appreciate having it available again."
Porter and Walkers both started as small businesses that grew to receive international acclaim because of their high-quality products and service, making this a well-matched partnership.
"Walkers is delighted to start this new and exciting chapter with Porter Airlines," said Alastair Walker, International Sales Manager of Walkers Shortbread. "We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership."
