Porter Airlines Lands in Dulles

by Casey | Posted on April 20th, 2012

Canadians love Virginia and now they’ll have unsurpassed access to all the Commonwealth has to offer by way of short, round-trip premium flights from Toronto to the Capital Region.

Earlier this week Porter Airlines made its inaugural flight from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Washington Dulles Airport. It was the first of what will be four daily round-trip flights between Toronto and the Capital Region.

Guests aboard Porter Airlines will have access to premium in-flight amenities – passenger lounges, complimentary drinks and snacks (including wine and beer), and highly coveted extra leg room.

With four flight times, getting from Canada to Virginia will be easier than ever. Guests can choose Toronto departure times of 7 am, 11:20 am, 1:55 pm, or 6:15 pm. The 11:20 am flight will be available beginning May 14, 2012.
