Porter Airlines is an airline based in Toronto Billy Bishop airport that connects a majority of eastern Canada together. It has a powerhouse fleet of 29 Q400s, but that is about to change with this new order of 30 E195-E2s with a possibility of 50 more in the future for a total of 80!
The Embraer E195-E2 is an upgraded E195 with increased wingspan, increased MTOW, better efficiency, and longer range. Currently, Azul, Binter Canarias, and KLM are its primary operators.
Porter Airlines expanding their fleet with the E195-E2 is a huge deal. It’ll likely provide for more routes both in Canada and between the US and Canada, and more!
Porter intends to deploy the E195-E2s to popular business and leisure destinations throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean, from Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and Toronto Pearson International Airport.
