    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is adding Boston to its growing
list of destinations as part of its fall schedule. Service between Toronto
City Centre Airport (TCCA) and Boston Logan International Airport begins Sept.
14, with up to three daily non-stop roundtrips. Porter will be the only
carrier offering service between these two convenient airports.
    Boston is the third U.S. city to experience the airline's unique
high-quality short-haul air travel experience committed to speed, convenience
and service. The route also offers connecting flights to other Porter
destinations, including Ottawa, Montreal, Thunder Bay, Ont., and Quebec City.
Flights are now available for booking on www.flyporter.com, by calling
1-888-619-8622 or contacting a travel agent.
    "Boston continues Porter's current growth phase and becomes an important
part of the network," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter
Airlines. "The Boston-Toronto City Centre route provides a new connection
between two of North America's most vibrant cities."
    Porter offers unique onboard service, including complimentary wine, beer
and premium snacks. It is based at its own dedicated TCCA terminal, one of the
most convenient urban airports in the world, situated just minutes from
downtown. Complimentary Porter shuttle buses offer passengers a short transfer
to the financial and entertainment districts. The airport is also accessible
by various public and private transportation options.
    "We are very pleased that Porter Airlines is landing at Boston Logan
International Airport, the gateway to New England," said Edward C. Freni,
director of aviation for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and
operates Logan. "As the fourth new airline at Logan this year, Porter's
service to Toronto City Centre Airport will provide Boston travelers a unique
and convenient way to get to downtown Toronto."
    Porter operates a fleet of 70-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft, among the
most popular regional aircraft in the world. It features high cruising speed,
revolutionary cabin noise-reduction technology and environmentally-friendly
engines. The aircraft uses 30 to 40 per cent less fuel than comparable
regional and narrow-body jets.
