Porter Airlines will add flight frequency to its new Ottawa-Charlottetown route in response to high demand for its service and to provide more opportunity for passengers to travel across Porter’s expanding network.

Service begins on May 17, as announced earlier this year. The increased schedule moves the initial seven weekly round trip flights to 11 times weekly during the spring and fall. This further improves to 14 flights per week during the peak summer travel season.

“There’s been a great response from the community and increasing frequency will allow passengers to  connect to more destinations across our network,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Porter

The non-stop flights between Ottawa and Charlottetown are to be served by 78-seat De Havilland Dash 8-400 aircraft. All passengers will experience Porter’s genuine hospitality and elevated onboard service, including premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware. 

With the introduction to the new Ottawa-Charlottetown route, Porter will operate nine non-stop routes from Ottawa International Airport this summer.
