Porter offers flights to Quebec City from Toronto and Halifax
TORONTO, June 27 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines begins summer service to Quebec
City today with one daily Toronto-Quebec City flight connecting Quebec City
passengers to Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA), only minutes from downtown.
Porter is also introducing the only scheduled non-stop flights between Halifax
and Quebec City, operating daily.
On arrival in Quebec City this afternoon, Porter's 70-seat Bombardier
Q400 aircraft will be greeted by a ceremonial water cannon salute from airport
fire trucks. Porter Airlines president and CEO Robert Deluce arrives on the
first flight and will be welcomed by Québec City Jean Lesage International
Airport president and chief operating officer Pascal Bélanger.
"Porter's new service to Quebec City gives our passengers another popular
destination to choose from when planning their summer holidays," said Deluce.
"We have the unique opportunity to connect both Halifax and Toronto to this
historic city, and we're thrilled that Quebecers can now experience Porter's
renowned hospitality and service."
"Porter's new take on service is perfectly attuned with our vision of
putting the passenger first," said Bélanger. "This new air service also
coincides nicely with Quebec City's 400th anniversary celebrations and the
inauguration of our brand new state-of-the-art terminal, which will be most
beneficial to Porter's passengers."
