In addition to the seasonal nonstop flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ), Porter is introducing nonstop flights from Canada's Ottawa (YOW) and Windsor (YQG) airports. The new flights commence December 16, 2017 and run through March 31, 2018. The Toronto flights continue through April 7, 2018. These are among Porter's first U.S. flights from an airport outside of its main base in Toronto. Complete schedule and booking options are now available at www.flyporter.com.

Porter introduced the Orlando Melbourne route in 2015 and has expanded annually to meet the increase in passenger demand. "Canada is a vital tourism market to us," said Greg Donovan, A.A.E., airport executive director. "Canadian travel to MLB is increasing as they fall in love with our destination and we are committed to provide them with the most technologically-advanced entry in the United States."

"Porter has seen tremendous interest in Orlando-Melbourne since service launched two years ago," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "The introduction of direct, non-stop flights from Windsor and Ottawa means more travellers will experience the best that Florida has to offer with Porter's affordable, award-winning service."  

The Sunshine State is an ideal destination to escape from the cold and snow-filled winters that embrace Canada. Orlando Melbourne is home to beautiful sunny beaches, world-class theme parks and is in close proximity to Port Canaveral, one of the most popular cruise ports in the world.

Whether travellers are in need of a relaxing vacation or thrill-seeking adventures, Orlando Melbourne has something for everyone. Learn the exhilarating sport of surfing and ride the waves at the Ron Jon Surf Shop. Sit down to a chef-prepared buffet meal as an astronaut shares their tales of space bound voyages at the Kennedy Space Center. Experience the tropical breezes while spending a day in paradise on any of the picturesque beaches, then head over to watch the Disney fireworks over Cinderella's castle.

Travel to MLB in style as Porter provides a premium experience including complimentary wine and beer onboard, and airport lounge access in Toronto and Ottawa for all passengers. Its "flying refined" philosophy has helped the airline win numerous global awards.
