Porter Airlines Adds Flights to Mont Tremblant, Canada for 2011-2012 Ski Season

Porter Airlines is ramping up for the 2011-2012 ski season with earlier annual service between Toronto and the Mont Tremblant ski resort in eastern Canada and a new nonstop roundtrip flight between New York and the resort.

Annual service between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) and Mont Tremblant starts December 15, a full week earlier than last year. Additionally, for the first time this season Porter is adding a nonstop, roundtrip flight between New York’s Newark International Airport (EWR) and the resort from December 22, 2011 to April 12, 2012.

“Our Mont Tremblant route is one of our most popular,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.

The roundtrip New York-Mont Tremblant flights will increase in frequency throughout the season until their peak from February 1, 2012 to April 8, 2012:

·         Two weekly roundtrip flights starting Dec. 15
·         Four weekly roundtrip flights starting Dec. 26
·         Five weekly roundtrip flights Jan. 2
·         Ten weekly frequencies starting Jan. 9
·         Peak operating frequency from Feb. 1 to April 8, at 13 weekly roundtrip flights

“We are very proud of the relationship developing between Porter and the Mont Tremblant region,” said Alain Houde, directeur général at Tourisme Mont-Tremblant. “The synergy is tremendous. More than 50 per cent of Porter’s passengers who visit us would not have come to our destination if it hadn’t been for the air service - Porter is helping us generate a new client base.”

Porter will also partner with Ultimate Ski Vacations to provide air-inclusive packages, including lift tickets and accommodations, with a “best price guarantee.” Visit www.ultimateski.ca or call 1-800-4653034.
