Porter Airlines is launching seasonal service to Burlington, Vermont, this winter, expanding its US network and adding a new destination for passengers looking to enjoy a season on the ski hills. With twice-weekly roundtrip flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Burlington International Airport beginning on Dec. 15 until April 8, passengers can enjoy easy access to some of Vermont’s best skiing and a rich assortment of local attractions.”This is a great partnership that will boost tourism in Vermont and provide an economic boost to our ski areas,” said Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.In a joint statement, Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, and Rep. Peter Welch said, “Porter Airlines, Ski Vermont, Governor Shumlin, the Burlington International Airport and Customs and Border Protection came together to introduce the people of Toronto to the best skiing and riding in the U.S.A. This announcement underscores the ‘international’ in Burlington International Airport, creating seasonal scheduled nonstop service between Toronto and Burlington. While it will offer a much-needed influx of visitors to the state this winter, especially needed following the devastating blow of Hurricane Irene, it will also give Vermonters an unprecedented opportunity to visit and do business in Toronto.” Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders and Congressman Welch wrote to Porter Airlines this summer inviting them to begin service between Toronto and Burlington. This fall, the lawmakers have worked with the airport and other stakeholders to help iron out details surrounding clearing international visitors at the airport. “Our new service to Vermont is a perfect complement to our current winter schedule already featuring prime destinations such as Mont Tremblant and Quebec City,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Burlington offers access to an incredible array of spectacular ski hills, and a vibrant community to explore.”The Burlington schedule includes weekly roundtrips on Thursdays and Sundays, with the exception of long weekends which offer Thursday and Monday roundtrip options.
