Porter Airlines prides itself on using its E195-E2, and the plane has been and continues to be critical to further expansion from Canada towards destinations across North America.

Its Embraer E195-E2s are configured with 132 seats in one class, thus being all economy. Porter always makes note that its E195-E2s do not feature middle seats.

Apart from this, Porter says its customers can expect fast WiFi onboard, which will allow for the streaming of content or the Inflight entertainment the airline offers

Also, premium snacks, complimentary beer and wine served in glassware are available for passengers.

Comments From Executives

It takes something exceptional to stand out in Vegas, and we intend to do just that by bringing our elevated economy experience to this popular destination. From the runway to the Strip, passengers start their special getaway the moment they board our aircraft

Las Vegas will officially mark Porter’s 17th route from Toronto Pearson since starting operations at YYZ in 2023. We’re pleased to see their continued commitment to expanding the destinations offered from Pearson. This new service provides passengers with another excellent choice when booking a trip to Las Vegas.

The Porter Airlines Fleet

Porter Airlines fleet consists of two aircraft types, from the Dash 8 Q400 to the E195-E2.

The Canadian airline utilises these aircraft for a host of differing means. However, deploying the E195-E2 has thus far been crucial to the long-term vision.

Among this Las Vegas route, the airline will launch Los Angeles and San Francisco flights shortly with the E195-E2, truly highlighting its capabilities.

  1. I flew with Porter from Toronto (YYZ) to Victoria (YYJ) in early October on the E195. The service was exceptional for economy. Free wifi , free snacks and drinks- including beer and wine. Air Canada and WestJet will need to up their game.

  2. I love to see an airline grow and remain out of the negative comment headlines. Congratulations Porter. I remember when I was with Nordair and we took delivery of a new 737 right off the line. Still get excited when I hear news like this.
