Porter Airlines introduced a new schedule for its daily flights serving the North Bay region on May 14th, 2017.
The improved departure times allow all travellers from North Bay to leave home in the morning, complete a full day of meetings, medical appointments or even take in an event in Toronto and return the same night.
Doing business in Ottawa or celebrating Canada’s 150th during the summer, weekday flights will also have continuing service to and from this destination. This means passengers do not have to change planes in Toronto, making for the fastest total travel time between these two cities.
There is also a wider range of connecting flight options to numerous Porter destinations beyond Toronto, including Ottawa, Montreal, Thunder Bay, New York, Chicago and Boston to name a few.
For great pricing and to get special promotional savings check out Porter’s Web-site and join the VIPorter program.
The North Bay Airport Community was able to work with Porter to introduce this new schedule that we believe appeals to even more business and leisure travellers. We encourage you to support and to take advantage of this service that gets you right to downtown Toronto at Billy Bishop Airport.
The addition of these flights is a catalyst to lower airfares which are now more competitive than ever and supports increased business opportunities for our service region and catchment area. Remember a mile of runway connects you to the world while a mile of highway only connects you to the next community.
Beginning October 7, 2015, Porter will offer daily flights between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) and North Bay Jack Garland Airport (YYB).
