TORONTO, ON., March 18, 2020 – Toronto-based Porter Airlines announced today that they are suspending all flights at the conclusion of the operating day on Friday, March 20 and will resume service on June 1.
“Porter supports the efforts of the Canadian, U.S. and global authorities in their responses, said Michael Deluce, President and CEO of Porter Airlines Inc. “Government actions make it apparent that restricting activities by people in all communities is what’s required to keep everyone healthy, and ultimately to end this fast-spreading pandemic.”
The statement from the Toronto Island based airline says, they intend to operate a schedule through Friday, to ensure all customers have an opportunity to complete trips or make last-minute travel arrangements. This will occur as long as aviation and public health infrastructure allows us to do so safely.
The Canadian airline wants to inform its passengers that due to the short notice, they’ve waived change and cancellation fees for all flights.
Changes and cancellations can be made online.
Deluce says, “If you have an upcoming flight booked with us during our temporary suspension, we will email you or your travel agent with information specific to your reservation. It isn’t necessary to contact us at this time while we assist passengers with travel requirements between now and Friday.”
