As of June 6, 2024, Porter Airlines has inaugurated a new nonstop route connecting Ottawa International Airport (YOW) and St. John’s International Airport (YYT). This new Porter Airlines route makes them the sole airline offering direct flights between these two cities.

The route starts with daily service on Porter’s Embraer E195-E2 aircraft, accommodating up to 132 passengers. The aircraft features a 2-2 seating configuration, eliminating the middle seat and offering passengers the choice between a window or an aisle seat. The flights also provide free and fast WiFi, complimentary premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware, ensuring an enjoyable experience for passengers flying in economy class.

PorterReserve passengers benefit from additional perks such as extra legroom, priority boarding, and fresh, healthy meals on longer flights. These meals are also available à la carte to passengers flying in PorterClassic.

As a hub for Porter Airlines, Ottawa offers flights to over a dozen destinations across Canada and the U.S., including regional centers like Fredericton and Thunder Bay, cities in Western Canada such as Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg, and U.S. locations like Orlando, Boston, and New York. Porter plans to operate up to 35 daily flights from Ottawa by August. Recently, Porter also opened a new $110 million aircraft maintenance base in Ottawa, supporting over 400 jobs in the city.

St. John’s, known for its mix of historical and modern attractions, is a popular destination for whale-watching tours, visits to Signal Hill, and experiencing local hangouts and small-town charm. With this new route, St. John’s passengers can now fly Porter nonstop to three Eastern Canadian destinations: Ottawa, Halifax, and Toronto. This route follows the recent inauguration of the Halifax-Deer Lake service.
