Porter Airlines returns to Mt. Tremblant for winter fun



    TORONTO, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is returning to the slopes of
Mont Tremblant, Que., with a more frequent winter schedule from Toronto City
Centre Airport. Flights from downtown Toronto begin Dec. 19, as often as five
times per week.
    Mont Tremblant International Airport is accessible from downtown Toronto
after only a 70-minute flight, bringing Eastern North America's number one ski
resort easily within reach. Flights are available Thursday, Friday, Saturday
and twice Sunday, depending on time of year.
    "The opportunity to offer more Tremblant flights this winter is based on
the strong demand we experienced last year," said Robert Deluce, president and
CEO of Porter Airlines. "Our passengers wanted more weekday flights and that's
what we're providing."
    "Tremblant is delighted to be able to count on a partner such as Porter
to serve its Toronto clientele, particularly in that Porter's philosophy is a
perfect complement to the quality, comfort, accessibility and high level of
service offered at Tremblant. The resort is also working in partnership with
Tourisme Mont Tremblant this winter to promote the unique Tremblant experience
to Torontonians," said Alain Brochu, vice-president Sales, Marketing and
Communication for Mont Tremblant Resort.
    Again this year, Tremblant was voted No.1 ski resort in the East by the
readers of SKI Magazine, for the 12th year in a row. With great skiing from
November to April, thanks to a state-of-the-art snowmaking system, combined
with an incredible choice of lodging right at the foot of the mountain, No.1
across North America according to the same survey, it's the ultimate ski-in,
ski-out experience. Add a lively pedestrian village, complete with an
impressive array of restaurants, boutiques, off-the-trails activities,
spectacular events and famous nightlife, and you'll almost forget you are
there to ski.
