Porter Airlines flies direct from Toronto to Mont Tremblant

    Flights from Toronto City Centre Airport available for ski season

    TORONTO, Oct. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The number one ski resort in Eastern
North America gets closer than ever to Toronto with Porter Airlines launching
a new service from its downtown terminal. Porter begins winter service to Mont
Tremblant International Airport from Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA) on
December 22, 2007, until March 31, 2008. Flying from the heart of Toronto to
the foot of the ski hills in just 70 minutes brings a new level convenience to
world-class skiing for Torontonians.
    Flights to Mont Tremblant include Monday, Wednesday and weekend flights
over the holidays and continue with regular weekend service into the spring.
From Dec. 22 to Jan. 6, Porter is offering a total of eight TCCA- Mont
Tremblant round-trips. Regular weekend service begins Jan. 7, with one
Toronto-Mont Tremblant round-trip on Saturday mornings and another round-trip
on Sunday evenings.
    "Mont Tremblant is just over an hour away from downtown Toronto flying on
Porter," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Whether
travellers want a quick weekend getaway or a week-long ski holiday, the
convenience of Porter service makes Tremblant remarkably accessible."
    "We are happy to welcome new flights from a carrier like Porter that
shares our vision of outstanding customer service," added Serge Larivière,
president of Mont Tremblant International Airport. "As the premier resort
airport, we know how speed, quality and first impressions affect the
experience of travellers."
    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, it's no wonder Tremblant was voted the number one ski
resort in the east by the readers of Ski Magazine, for 11 years in a row! 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.
    At the heart of Porter's philosophy is a desire to reintroduce
convenience, speed and seamless service to air travel. Travellers will benefit
from Porter's customer-focused approach that includes complimentary in-flight
food and beverage service. Porter's TCCA hub is one of the most convenient
urban airports in the world and just minutes from Toronto's financial core and
most popular tourist destinations.
    Initial one-way fares start at $129, plus taxes and fees. Reservations
are immediately available on Porter's website, www.flyporter.com, through its
call centre at 1-888-619-8622 or 416-619-8622, or through registered travel
