"YYG Charlottetown Airport is thrilled to see Porter providing an additional frequency to their recently announced Ottawa service. This second flight will provide more choice and convenience for our passengers as Porter expands their Ottawa schedule in the coming months," said Doug Newson, CEO, Charlottetown Airport Authority. "We appreciate Porter's commitment to Prince Edward Island and look forward to working with them to ensure these flights are successful."
