Four new Canadian and US routes are being launched from Ottawa International Airport.

From 27 March 2023, Porter Airlines will commence non-stop flights daily between Ottawa and Boston, New York-Newark, Quebec City and Thunder Bay.

This will see the number of Porter’s regional destinations served directly from the nation’s capital doubled.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Porter’s exciting growth plans and welcome these additions to YOW’s offering,” commented Mark Laroche, president and CEO, Ottawa International Airport Authority.

“I am confident that the Ottawa-Gatineau community will continue to embrace Porter’s elevated service and comfort as more and more people return to the skies.”

The new daily non-stop routes will be served by 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft.

“Ottawa was our first destination when we launched in 2006, and it has always been a critical location for Porter throughout our history,” stated Michael Deluce, president and CEO, Porter Airlines.

“The network expansion in Ottawa shows our commitment to the Ottawa-Gatineau region and its people. We expect our presence in Ottawa will continue growing.”

Porter also recently announced a new maintenance base scheduled to open at Ottawa International Airport in late 2023, and a Toronto Pearson-Ottawa route to be served with its state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 aircraft beginning in February 2023.
