Porter. Flying refined. Really!


Let’s face it; air travel isn’t always a pleasant experience these days. The long lines, bitter check-in agents, being forced to parade barefoot on bacteria ridden floors and of course, everyone’s favorite, the random search.  Well, for all of you who are looking for a better way to fly, with an airline that actually treats you like a human, look no further than Porter Air.

Last week I traveled to Toronto for IIDEX/NeoCon Canada using Porter for the first time. Over the past few months I had heard a ton of buzz about the airline, (which recently began service to Boston) and figured I’d give them a try.  Below are the particulars that have me hooked.

  1. Pleasant employees at the check in counter (Happy. Even before dawn. How rare!)
  2. Hip lounge complete with a variety of functional spaces. Soft seating with complementary Wi-Fi and televisions. Desks with computers and work stations and a kitchenette with high top tables and a pantry loaded with complementary snacks and drinks.Porter Lounge- Toronto
  3. Très fashionable stewardess outfits.
  4. Complementary food in flight! Cheeky graphics on a neatly packaged snack box (containing 1/2 a sandwich, cheese & crackers). Food on an airline?! Another rare discovery. Snack Box
  5. Lots of leg room. Without having to pay extra.
  6. Stepping off the plane to be greeted by the  Toronto skyline.

Just as they promised, Porter did it right.  Porter is a breath of fresh air in an industry that desperately needs to be refreshed.
