Porter Airlines Not Accepting International Pax?

Hey guys. My sister tried booking PD from EWR to YTZ this summer, and booking was blocked because PD only accepts Canadian or American passengers. Anyone knows why? Is this because YTZ is lacking necessary immigration facilities? Good thing they've got monopoly to YTZ, because if a competitor was on the same route, international passengers would make up at least 10% of the people on board, right?

Porter does accept customers from other countries.

From their website

nternational Travel:
All passengers travelling to and from the United States are required to present a valid passport. Failure to do so will result in boarding being denied for international flights. Citizens of countries other than Canada and the United States should contact their consulate or embassy for boarding requirements. Proof of onward or return travel may be required at check-in.

Secure Flight is a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) program that enhances the security of international air travel. Porter is required to submit passengers' name as it appears on passport, gender, date of birth and redress number (as applicable) to TSA 72 hours prior to passenger travel. For more info, visit our Secure Flight information page

I guess you would just select US Resident. Passports are valid forms of ID, and no matter what airport your in, you will clear TSA security and immigration if needed.

Can anyone else confirm this? That my sister should just select US Resident?

Have emailed a friend of mine who works as a CSA for Porter to check for you.

Fauzi, was your sister using a Canadian or an American credit card? I think this may be more of a problem rather than international passenger problems.
