Porter Two New US Destinations
These newly established routes will be served by the Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, configured with 132 all-economy seats in a two-by-two layout, ensuring that there are no middle seats on any Porter flight.
Passengers are treated to a premium experience within the economy class, including complimentary high-speed WiFi for streaming movies and shows, along with continuous connectivity throughout the flight. All passengers can enjoy a variety of premium snacks, as well as complimentary beer and wine served in glassware.
For travelers seeking additional comforts, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meal options are available as part of the all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or as separate purchases with PorterClassic fares.
The E195-E2 aircraft is notable for its remarkable environmental friendliness, being 65% quieter and up to 25% more fuel-efficient than earlier-generation technology. It boasts the lowest fuel consumption per seat and per trip among 120- to 150-seat aircraft, making it the quietest single-aisle jet currently in operation.
Porter Airlines strongly emphasizes menu design in line with its sustainability commitment. Efforts include a focus on reducing and ultimately eliminating single-use plastics onboard, providing biodegradable cups and cutlery, and using eco-friendly packaging.

Connecting Toronto and California
Toronto, Canada’s prominent tourist and business hub, boasts a wide-ranging appeal, catering to diverse tastes with its rich culture, arts, entertainment, and a vibrant international dining scene.
The city holds a prominent position in the film industry, hosting the renowned Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Additionally, it stands as one of North America’s leading technology centers, fostering a diverse ecosystem of startups and attracting substantial investments from global tech giants.
Canadian travelers bound for California have an array of attractions to explore through gateways in both Northern and Southern California.
These experiences include iconic activities such as traversing the Golden Gate Bridge, riding cable cars, and savoring the delights of wine country in the north. Meanwhile, in the south, visitors can indulge in celebrity spotting on Hollywood Boulevard, catch waves along the coastline, and enjoy the thrills of theme parks.
Porter Airlines offers convenient connections across its Canadian network, including major cities like Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, and St. Johns.
These new routes complement Porter’s expansion into the United States, as it introduces service with the E195-E2 to five destinations in Florida: Tampa, Fort Myers, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami, beginning in the fall.
Kevin Jackson, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Porter Airlines, stated,
“Porter’s commitment to providing an exceptional onboard experience for economy travelers sets us apart from other carriers in North America. We believe that every passenger deserves genuine hospitality and top-notch service that transforms time spent onboard our aircraft into a truly enjoyable experience. Our expansion into California provides an exciting option for travelers seeking a fresh way to connect Canada and the West Coast.”
Ivar C. Satero, Airport Director, San Francisco International Airport said,
“We are delighted to welcome Porter Airlines to SFO. This service offers San Francisco Bay Area travelers an exciting new avenue to Canada and aligns with our own dedication to promoting sustainable travel. We extend our appreciation to Porter for including SFO in their U.S. expansion plans, and we have confidence that this new service will be well-received.”
