TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is adding a fourth weekday roundtrip between Sault Ste. Marie and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The new flights begin Oct. 1.
"Sault Ste. Marie is an example of a city that needed competition," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "We've been able to encourage more people to fly based on offering choice, lower fares and direct access to downtown Toronto. Our new schedule matches this interest."
Porter began serving Sault Ste. Marie in 2011, with two daily flights.
"The Sault Ste. Marie Airport Development Corporation (SSMADC) is very encouraged by the response from travellers using the Sault airport following the introduction of Porter with its new competitive airfares, level of service and connecting flights in Canada and the U.S.," said Terry Bos, CEO of SSMADC. "One year after the third daily flight was added Porter, has recognized this response by adding a fourth daily flight to serve the Sault Ste. Marie market. This addition enables greater flexibility in responding to the needs of the travelling public - a guiding principle in the SSMADC business and marketing plan."
