Minister of Economic Development and Trade Sandra Pupatello issued the following statement about Porter Airlines adding new services to Windsor and Sault Ste. Marie and expanding service to Sudbury.
"Congratulations to Porter Airlines on adding up to three daily roundtrip flights between Toronto and Windsor.
Market access and ease of travel are important for businesses making investment decisions. It will also make it easier for Ontarians and visitors to discover Ontario.
This route meets Windsor's business needs and tourism offerings and will provide a real boost to Ontario's economy.
I'm also thrilled that Porter is adding service between Toronto and Sault Ste. Marie and doubling service between Sudbury and Toronto. Strengthening economic and tourism connections between the north and the south is vital to many people's livelihoods.
I'm confident this expansion will mean good business for Porter and strengthen our economy as we continue to turn the corner."
