Porter Airlines to launch Miami-Toronto service this winter

Canadian airline will begin first-ever Miami flights in December

Canadian low-cost carrier Porter Airlines has announced that it will launch its first-ever service at Miami International Airport on December 12 with daily round-trip flights from Toronto Pearson International Airport.

The Miami-Toronto route is one of Porter’s first to the U.S. using its 132-seat, all-economy Embraer E195-E2 aircraft that includes a two-by-two configuration with no middle seats on every flight.

We are excited to welcome Porter Airlines for the first time ever at Miami International Airport and open our arms to more Canadian visitors to Miami-Dade County.  At 603,000 passengers in 2022, Canada was already MIA’s 10th-busiest international market last year, and travel between Canada and MIA is up a whopping 44% so far this year. I look forward to seeing Porter Airlines’ daily service from Toronto strengthen that thriving connection between Canada and Miami-Dade County even more.

Free WiFi, a selection of premium snacks, and free beer and wine served in glassware are standard for all passengers. Priority check-in, extra legroom seats, premium pre-mixed cocktails, and fresh, healthy meals are also available with the all-inclusive PorterReserve fares or purchased à la carte with PorterClassic fares.

Canadians are used to flying to Florida, but not like this. Porter’s all-economy onboard service is unmatched by any other carrier in North America. Whether that’s free WiFi, no middle seats, free beer and wine alongside premium snacks, or fresh, healthy food, Porter is challenging the industry’s definition of economy air travel. We believe that time onboard our aircraft is just as important as at the destination.
