Seasonal service from Newark International Airport
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Porter Airlines is launching a new route from New York to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, this winter, just in time for ski season. From Dec. 22 to April 12, passengers can enjoy weekly roundtrip flights from Newark International Airport to the base of Mont Tremblant, eastern North America's premier ski destination.
With a state-of-the-art snow making system, world class ski hills, a lively pedestrian village with a wide array of boutiques, restaurants and plenty of nightlife options, Mont Tremblant has long been a favorite destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
"Canada is world-famous for our award-winning outdoor attractions," said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. "Introducing non-stop flights to Mont Tremblant provides passengers in Greater New York with even easier access to some of the best skiing we have to offer."
Highlights from the new schedule include weekly departures on Thursday mornings, return flights on Monday mornings from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2, and return flights on Sunday mornings from Jan. 8 to April 12.
Passengers can also connect through Toronto for even greater travel flexibility with 11 weekly departure times and 10 return options.
