Porter Airlines Reviews
Porter Airlines which was established on February 2, 2006 got its name from Porter FBO Limited which had been the partner of the regional airline of Toronto, Canada. The airlines is owned by Porter Aviation Holdings (PAHL). Since PAHL owns Porter Airlines that automatically makes Robert Deluce the CEO and President of the airline. He was initially the one who came up with the idea of creating a regional airline using Bombardier turboprop aircraft to major cities of Canada within the range of Toronto.
Now the fleet of 26 is still consists of all Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 that provides scheduled regional services to 24 destinations: (15) in Canada and (8) in USA. All flight are from the Toronto City Airport. Porter Airlines had announced several agreements with several airlines starting 2012 which includes South African Airways, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, El Al Airlines and JetBlue.
Porter Airlines Reviews and Services
Porter Airlines is a regional airline flying with a Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 able to carry 78 passengers on board. This type of aircraft can only provide one kind of cabin class. Even if they only have one-class service, passengers never felt not well accommodated on board.
Accessibility and special assistance are offered on board for travellers with reduced mobility, language barriers, or are visually and hearing impaired, even for passengers who travel with an assistive device. They are also assisting customers with allergies but can’t guarantee the cabin will be animal allergen free because service animals may be present onboard and passengers’ clothing may carry animal allergens.
Passengers are allowed to bring at least two carry-on baggage. The maximum weight baggage allowance for Porter Airlines is at 9 kg (20 lbs). When it comes to check-in time, travellers should allow sufficient time for getting to the airport, through check-in and security and to the gate. All flights are available for check-in 24 hours prior to departure.
Official Website and Mobile app
The website is actually user-friendly though the background makes it formal. Don’t get us wrong, we love how unique the airline took that photography for the sake of their official website. It fits perfectly, plus the fact the page itself lets customers book hotel reservations too, not just flights.
Customers could also grasp the information regarding the airline’s latest airfare deals, policies and services. The site is interchangeable to English and French. Their website was actually one of our good sources to write a review about them. Before I forget, travellers can also manage and check their flight status online.
In 2014, Porter Airlines had already extended their service as per request of travellers. The mobile app is now available for Apple users. Download the free travel app on App Store, as announced on their Twitter account. To see more of their social media account, click the links below:

After writing a review about Porter Airlines, we are actually amazed how a small airline can perform much.

That’s not actually in a question, it has one of a kind customer service and facilities that do not only make your journey easy but also understand you. You should book a flight with this airline.
