Porter Airlines has a new home at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and is now open to passengers. The $50 million passenger terminal enhances passenger services, further improving the travel experience at this revitalized facility. The new lounges triple previous capacity and include standard complimentary Porter amenities such as a business centre, modern lounge-style seating, beverages, snacks and Wi-Fi. Porter projects over 1.3 million passengers using the airport in 2010.

Porter Airlines offers you convenience, speed and seamless service in your short-haul air travel. The Porter travel experience is simple, hassle-free and dignified, reflecting the days when flying was fun, exciting and a part of the journey to look forward to.

Porter sets the standard for service, bringing an uncompromising commitment to delivering on its “flying refined” brand promise.


From top to bottom, inside and out, we’ve raised the bar. This new standard in air travel is evident not only in our ultra-modern facilities, but in the quality of our staff. Each team member has been specially selected and trained to put travellers first with impeccable and innovative service.  (Their uniforms are pretty sharp too!)

This commitment to innovation is reflected in our aircraft as well. Porter chooses to fly the state-of-the-art Bombardier Q400, the most technologically-advanced regional aircraft in the world. It’s fast, quiet and offers custom leather seats with two to three inches more legroom than typical economy-class seating. This truly is flying refined.


How’s this for a change? The next time you fly into Toronto, you can actually fly into Toronto. That’s right, avoid the additional expense and unpredictability of trips to Pearson. Porter Airlines flies out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, just minutes from downtown.

Because of our central location and small airport feel, we can dramatically cut your total travel time. Easy access to the airport, quick check-in and security, short taxi to the runway and a fast, modern aircraft can potentially save you hours on a round-trip flight.


Porter Airlines has streamlined the entire travel process to give you the ultimate in convenience. For your flights into Toronto, start with an airport that's located at the foot of Bathurst St. It's just a short cab ride away. If you want to save the fare you can take the TTC or GO Transit to Union Station. Our free shuttle bus runs directly from the airport to the west end of The Fairmont Royal York Hotel (located at the north-east corner of Front Street and York Street, across from Union Station.)

Please note that the check-in kiosk formerly located at Union Station is permanently closed - please check-in at the airport.
