TORONTO, April 12, 2021/Scudrunners Aviation News/ – Toronto Island Airport based Porter Airlines has tentitively set June 21 to relaunch service.

“In recent weeks, there has been open discussion by government officials about easing travel restrictions based on expectations that vaccination programs will be well advanced in the U.S. and Canada by early summer,” said Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “We recognize that short-term public health measures have been enhanced recently in certain jurisdictions. At the same time, we are looking ahead to summer and preparing for the possibility of some travel restrictions unwinding. We will begin the process of rebuilding our operations as soon as conditions allow based on government decisions.”

Porter Airlines suspended all flight on March 21, 2020 as the Covid 19 pandemic began to decimate air travel. Earlier Porter had proposed May 19th 2021 as a relaunch date.

Scudrunners Aviation News reported on Waltzing Matilda Aviation of Boston’s announcement to start Connect Airlines with service from YTZ. Connect Airlines target launch is set for fall of 2021 and will compete directly with Porter Airlines. This is good news that we will hear Porter on the radio again, #savecanadianaviation
