Porter recognized as a top 10 international airline by Conde Nast Traveler

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 18, 2016) - Porter Airlines is flying with the world's best airlines, according to Condé Nast Traveler's 2016 Readers' Choice Awards. Porter is the smallest carrier on the list, securing ninth place among 20 global airlines.

"Porter has been recognized in the international airlines category of Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards alongside the best-of-the-best. Our team is the main reason we have been able to sustain this level of service year after year," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "This year is especially memorable with our home base, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, voted as the fourth best international airport. This goes to show that when you fly Porter, you're getting world-class service every step of the way."

Porter emphasizes overall service, providing complimentary amenities, including lounge access, beer, wine and snacks for all passengers.

"This award comes just ahead of our 10th birthday, and we remain as committed to providing passengers with the key benefits they love about Porter as we were 10 years ago," added Deluce.

Earlier in the year, Porter was voted North America's Best Regional Airline by Skytrax; ranked the second-most reputable Canadian company and the most reputable airline in Canada by the Reputation Institute; and voted one of the top 10 international airlines by Travel + Leisure's World Best Awards.

The Readers' Choice Awards 2016 saw the biggest engagement from users in Condé Nast Traveler's history: more than 300,000 readers submitted millions of ratings and 75,000 comments to help create the list of winners.

The Readers' Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler. The full list is published exclusively online, at cntraveler.com.
