TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines operated the first flights today
from its newly completed terminal at Toronto City Centre Airport. The
five-month project tripled passenger lounge space and increased airport gate
"Passenger response to Porter's unique service offering over our first 15
months of flying allowed us to move ahead confidently with the terminal
project and meet future demand," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of
Porter Airlines. "By the end of 2008, we plan to have 10 aircraft in the fleet
and be serving as many as eight destinations, including New York, which will
be our first U.S. city launching in the spring."
Passenger areas in the terminal feature leather lounge seating, wireless
Internet access, beverages, snacks and computer work stations. These services
