New Aircraft For Porter?

Thu Nov 29, 2007 7:03 pm

Hello all,

Does anyone know when the next two Q400 deliveries for Porter will be? I've heard they are almost complete. Is there a way to find out from Bombardier's website the pending deliveries?

Who is Porter? SAS has some Q-400s they would like to get rid of.

Handyman specials. I think Porter wants new ones.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Porter Q400's c/n 4193 C-GLQF and c/n 4194 C-GLQG were registered about a week ago. Last Q400 delivery was c/n 4179 G-JECZ for FlyBe on 21 Nov 07. Production is about one a week, so c/n's 4193 and 4194 should be delivered about late Feb 08.

Porter offers a great product. Would love to see them expand with some E190's to florida and the west coast. They could kill AC.

They absolutely do offer a great product and would love to see AC match it. As far as "killing" AC - get real!
They are small niche carrier, who if smart, will stay focused on what they do well.

Speaking of Porter, I know they plan on EWR next, and possibly MDW? Where else are they considering expanding to?

I believe that they are considering Sudbury and Timmins as well.

That would require leaving the comfy confines of City Centre.

I think Porter wants to stay in City Centre rather than going to YYZ. The minute they move to YYZ, they will be wiped out by AC and WestJet. In addition to the new aircraft, I think they would pick up those Q400's if Bombardier does a complete check on them.
