Porter Completes Rollout of 31 JetBlue Interline Destinations

Connecting at Boston and Toronto Hubs Means New Destinations for Passengers

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 17, 2015) - The first wave of 31 destinations are now available as part of an interline agreement between Toronto-based Porter Airlines and New York-based JetBlue Airways. Passengers can book flights directly on Porter's website, www.flyporter.com.

Porter and JetBlue announced their partnership in October, and routes have been steadily added since then. Both carrier's customer focus and innovative product and service offerings have made for an ideal collaboration.

"Porter's connection with JetBlue has opened up more exciting destinations for our passengers from our convenient downtown Toronto location," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "The response to date has been overwhelmingly positive and we know that the popularity of this partnership will only increase in 2015."

Porter passengers connect to JetBlue destinations via Boston Logan International Airport, which Porter flies up to eight times daily from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, providing convenient connection times throughout the day. Other connections outside of Toronto are also available.

Long Beach, CA, New Orleans, Nantucket, and Portland, OR, are the latest additions to the route map. The new U.S. routes also include multiple west coast destinations, such as Los Angeles and San Diego; across the east coast, such as Raleigh/Durham and Philadelphia; and the southeast, such as Tampa and Jacksonville.

The Caribbean is also accessible for sun-seekers, with routes to Aruba, Cancun, Nassau and Punta Cana.

More cities will be added in 2015 as schedules are announced for both airlines. For a full list of destinations is available at Porter's website.
