Porter Airlines invites passengers to lounge around in Ottawa

New lounge offers passengers complimentary amenities

OTTAWA, Oct. 19 /CNW/ - Porter Airlines is announcing the opening of its dedicated lounge in Ottawa International Airport. All passengers have complimentary access to the airline's comfortable, modern and stylish lounge, the first located outside of the airline's main hub at Toronto City Centre Airport.

Features and furnishings emulate the existing Toronto lounge, including comfortable seating, computer workstations, Wi-Fi access, a meeting room and business centre as well as snacks, cold beverages and espresso in heated cups. From the lounge, it's only a few steps to board Porter's Canadian-built Bombardier Q400 aircraft featuring leather seats and extra legroom.

"Porter is known for creating an exceptional travel experience and the new lounge enhances this in Ottawa," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Passengers can now relax in a familiar location and easily complete any last-minute business tasks before their flight."

Porter is committed to reintroducing convenience, speed and seamless service to air travel. With its upscale amenities and refreshing approach to customer service, the airline is changing the way people fly. Passengers enjoy complimentary service, including free in-flight wine, beer and premium snacks, all served aboard comfortable, modern aircraft.

"We are very pleased that Porter chose Ottawa for the first lounge away from its home base, and we know that clients will enjoy an end-to-end Porter experience when their travels take them to Toronto," said Paul Benoit, Ottawa Airport Authority President and CEO.

Porter exclusively operates Bombardier's 70-seat Q400 aircraft. The aircraft sets new standards for comfort and fuel efficiency, using 30 to 40 per cent less fuel than comparable regional and narrow-body jets. The Q400 features high cruising speed, revolutionary cabin noise-reduction technology and environmentally-friendly engines.
