TORONTO, Jan. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is enhancing its New York service with two additional daily flights and a more convenient schedule. This increases daily roundtrip departures between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport to as many as 13 flights, and provides a wider range of morning, afternoon and evening departures for passengers.
"Demand for our Toronto-New York route continues to increase and we are responding with additional flights," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Porter offers the only service between downtown Toronto and New York, which is one of the reasons we've become a top choice for business and leisure travellers between the two markets."
With the fastest available travel time between downtown Toronto and downtown Manhattan, Porter's service from Toronto City Airport to Newark also provides the most convenient access to New York's financial district.
The first new flight starts March 26, with a second flight beginning on April 16, and additional weekend options as of March 25.
Porter also launched a new non-stop service between Newark and Mt. Tremblant, Que., this winter, a popular skiing destination, making it easier than ever to enjoy a season on the slopes.
