BURLINGTON GETS SKI FLIGHTS FROM TORONTO

by Craig Altschul

Toronto-based Porter Airlines has expanded its East Coast winter flights to include Burlington International Airport from the new $50 million Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. “Burlington, Vermont is an exciting addition to the Porter family, and we look forward to providing our passengers with convenient access to this premier winter destination,” president and CEO Robert Deluce told Vermont Winter News. The Toronto-Burlington flights begin Dec. 15, 2011 and run through April 8, 2012. Passengers can fly weekly round trips Thursdays and Sundays. There are also options for longer weekends adding in Mondays. One-way fares start at $99, plus fees and taxes. Deluce said the airline has partnered with Ultimate Ski Vacations for air-inclusive packages that include lift tickets and accommodations that come with a “best price guarantee.” The packages can be customized. The five-year-old carrier’s fleet is made up of what the airline calls “state of the art,” quiet Bombadier Q400 turboprops. The interior’s 70 seats are all leather.
