Porter Launches Toronto-Tampa
November 1, 2023 ctn_admin
Porter Airlines is launching daily, roundtrip service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Tampa (TPA). This is the first U.S. route operated by any airline with the state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2.
Porter is the North American launch customer for Embraer’s newest family of E2 jets. The 132-seat, all-economy aircraft has a two-by-two configuration, which means no middle seat on any Porter flight. The E2 is the most environmentally-friendly single-aisle aircraft family, measured by sound and CO2 emissions. It is certified to the strictest international standard for aircraft noise, at 65% quieter than previous generation types.
Porter’s industry-leading economy passenger experience is unlike any other carrier in the market. Free, fast WiFi, a selection of premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware is standard for all passengers. Priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are also available with the all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or for purchase à la carte with PorterClassic fares.
The flight schedule and respective start dates are as follows:
