New flights to the Windy City

The Canadian short-haul regional airline Porter has begun flying roundtrip from Toronto to Chicago three times a day during the week and twice a day on weekends.

As of January 8th, service increases to six daily workweek flights. Porter differentiates itself by flying directly to the downtown Toronto City Centre Airport, rather than the less convenient Pearson airport. (Porter's new Toronto-Chicago service happens to also reintroduce international service to Midway airport.)

Bucking recent economic trends, the airline promises to expand service to Boston, D.C., and Philadelphia over the next three 18 months.

Porter uses new turboprops that offer custom leather seats with two to three inches more legroom than the 30 inches of legroom you typically find in the economy-class sections of other airlines.
