Porter Airlines has arrived in the Sunshine State of Florida, marking the first day of seasonal weekly service that continues until April 30, 2016.
“Orlando-Melbourne is now our most southern destination. This route provides a convenient connection between downtown Toronto and a part of Florida that lacked international air service until now,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines.
“Orlando-Melbourne International Airport is proud and honoured to serve as Porter Airlines’ entry into the Florida market. We are the beachside airport for all that Florida has to offer. MLB is closest to beaches, closest to cruises, closest to fun. We appreciate the opportunity to showcase our airport’s convenience, coastal personality, and our customs facility. This is just the beginning,” said Greg Donovan, AAE, executive director, Orlando-Melbourne International Airport (MLB).
Orlando-Melbourne is located along Florida’s Atlantic coastline, known as the Space Coast for its proximity to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. T
“The secret is out. Canadians have long appreciated our sparkling beaches, breathtaking sunrises over the Atlantic, warm tropical breezes, and casual lifestyle. Thanks to Porter Airlines, they can now fly nonstop to our beaches, attractions, water sports, space port launches, fishing and more. Our hospitality industry is ready and eager to serve this growing number of Canadian visitors,” said Eric Garvey, executive director, Space Coast Office of Tourism.
