Non-stop flight from Fredericton to downtown Toronto launches on Porter Airlines
May 5, 2022
A new daily flight launches today, bringing travellers non-stop from the Fredericton International Airport (YFC) to Billy Bishop Airport (YTZ) in downtown Toronto on Porter Airlines. This new service complements Porter’s existing flight which goes first to Ottawa (YOW) and then onwards to Billy Bishop Airport.
This new non-stop flight makes it easier than ever to travel between Fredericton and Toronto while also providing convenient connections to Porter’s network, including destinations such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Thunder Bay and Timmins.
“The Fredericton International Airport continues to add new options for travellers and we’re excited to see Porter’s service grow here at YFC. Porter offer an excellent service for business and leisure travellers, and this non-stop option to downtown Toronto makes travel between our cities easier than ever.”
– Johanne Gallant, President and CEO, Fredericton International Airport Authority
“Our tourism sector is excited that visitors to Fredericton will now be able to fly directly from downtown Toronto. In particular, convention delegates are going to love the time-saving convenience Porter offers. This flight builds on our strength as a premier Atlantic Canadian convention destination.”
– David Seabrook, Director of Tourism, City of Fredericton
“Having a direct link to downtown Toronto with the new Porter flights is something our more than 1000 members tell us is really important to them to facilitate meetings with clients, suppliers and other important business connections.”
– Krista Ross, CEO of the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce.
“Additional Fredericton flights are part of Porter’s overall growth in Atlantic Canada. We’re investing in new service to meet the increasing demand for travel to and from this region.”
– Michael Deluce, President and CEO, Porter Airlines
