Also a 2nd daily to Sudbury YSB.

Rumours they may consider YOW-YSJ (Saint John NB) since WS has announced they will not serve YSJ this summer.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

I could see PD starting YTZ-YTS later this year,thereby entering all of AC primary regional markets within Ontario. Others such as YYB and YGK are hard to predict.

I think PD is taking a two pronged approach to route expansion and improvement:

--> Maintain and build up the core triangle routes, and

--> establish a foothold in the larger northern Ontario cities (which is what PD is doing with YAM).

I agree with 925fly above that YTS would be the next logical step for PD to expand in the northern Ontario. Timmins, Sudbury among others in northern Ontario are hotspots for mining activity while Toronto is where many HQs of the mining companies are located. With a downtown airport, PD would be a very inticing option in many situations I bet for employees having to go from the offices to the mines and back.

Whats the range on the Q400? any routes to the southeast possible focus on Florida/GA? I think it would be a fit for porter to operate into some leisure destinations if the range is possible. I see they have MYR as one route.

Now there's a throwback to the 1950s.... Flying a prop "jet" on such routes!

The range of the Q400 could make such routes possible (it's a bit of a stretch) but from YTZ it's not entirely practical.

The YTZ-MYR route for example is already restricted in terms of passenger capacity for a couple of reasons - the first being the weight restrictions for a 2+ hour flight from that short runway; the second being the obviously huge number of golf clubs traveling being a bit of a nightmare to pack in the holds.

Bombardier claims a 70-passenger Q400 will hit a maximum range of 1,362nm. From Toronto, that'd go down as far as the Bahamas. But again, that's a long heavy flight to be operating from the short runway at YTZ (a shade under 4,000ft).

Porter's focus remains the cities within around 500 miles of YTZ for the most part (ie. those that are easily operated under most conditions without payload limitations). The exceptions being those cities out on the East Coast - Halifax, St John's, Moncton, etc - which are being served either via YUL and YOW. Other cities rumoured for the East include YFC, YSJ and YJT... though I'm not sure where that last one comes from.
