TORONTO, Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Porter Airlines is launching seasonal service to Burlington, Vermont, this winter, expanding its U.S. network and adding a new destination for passengers looking to enjoy a season on the ski hills.
With twice-weekly roundtrip flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Burlington International Airport beginning on Dec. 15 until April 8, passengers can enjoy easy access to some of Vermont’s best skiing and a rich assortment of local attractions.
“Our new service to Vermont is a perfect complement to our current winter schedule already featuring prime destinations such as Mont Tremblant and Quebec City,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Burlington offers access to an incredible array of spectacular ski hills, and a vibrant community to explore.”
The Burlington schedule includes weekly roundtrips on Thursdays and Sundays, with the exception of long weekends which offer Thursday and Monday roundtrip options. One-way fares start as low as $99, plus applicable fees and taxes.
“This is a great partnership that will boost tourism in Vermont and provide an economic boost to our ski areas,” said Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.
