Porter Airlines is offering passengers 50% off flights with promo code WOW50. Travel must be booked by September 7th for flights departing through December 15, 2011. Porter Airlines is a Toronto based airline with flights from Toronto Centre Airport. The airport location is about 10 minutes from from downtown Toronto on a little island off the harbor. This is a great option to make your early morning business meeting without having to deal with the hassle of the international airport about 40 minutes away. When I was in Toronto in May, you could easily see this airport from the city harbor.
Porter Airline offers direct flights to Toronto from the following US destinations: Boston, Chicago (Midway), Myrtle Beach, and Newark. Canadian cities include: Halifax, Moncton, Mount Tremblant, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Sault Ste. Marie, St. John’s, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, and Windsor. Flights from other Canadian cities to the US will require a layover in Toronto.
I played around with random dates at the end of September and was able to find a round-trip flight from Newark to Toronto for $240.99 all in. For the exact same dates, the cheapest I was able to find on Kayak was $299 (including taxes and fees as well). If you have plans to go to Canada it is definitely worth looking into this sale!
Update: Apparently Air Canada is matching the 50% from YYZ to wherever Porter Airline flies in Canada and the US, as well as YTZ to YOW and YUL. Additionally, Westjet is matching 50% off all flights from YYZ to eastern Canada.
Also, if you do find yourself heading to Toronto, check out a previous post on Starwood hotel options in the city. I personally really liked the city when I visited for a business trip. One recommendation: Make sure to take a boat out in the harbor – it is pretty cool!
