Toronto-based upstart Porter Airlines, which launched in 2006, plans to announce tomorrow that it will begin daily service between Boston and Toronto City Centre Airport, according to an aviation official with knowledge of the airline's plans. The airline is planning to launch three daily flights between Logan Airport and the Toronto airport that is located at the western end of the Toronto islands, the official said.

Porter Airlines could not immediately be reached for comment.

Porter Airlines serves Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Halifax, Newark, and Chicago Midway airports, with seasonal flights to Mt. Tremblant, Quebec. The company has said that it plans to fly to at least 16 short-haul Canadian and US destinations.

  1. You guys are in for a treat. You have no idea how good Porter is compared to anything else in the air. Dig into the reviews on sites around the net for more, but a quick summary is - ferry rides, free espresso in terminal, lounges that look like Wallpaper magazine, free wifi, real glasses on planes, cute uniforms, retro style, great food.... Again, you are in for a treat. Enjoy!
