Porter Airlines to Sudbury!
[Image: 484px-Porter_Airlines_Logo.svg.png]
Porter is a Toronto Billy Bishop (The smaller airport in Toronto) based airline founded by Robert Deluce, the past CEO of AirOntario, NorOntair, Canada 3000. He currently is the CEO of Porter.
Departure
At YTZ we only need to arrive 30 minutes prior to flight. We arrived 1 hour so we could use the Porter Lounge.
Seat: 2A
Cabin: Premium Porter (Economy, with some extra legroom and $40 extra per ticket).
Aircraft: Bombardier Dash-8 Q400
-
We arrived at the Airport on the Complimentary Porter/Air Canada Express bus that takes us to Island Airport. We then get on the ferry, which is the shortest scheduled ferry ride in the world - 400 feet. Once we arrive in the terminal, we go straight through security as we pre-printed our boarding passes. Security took literally 3 minutes. We then got into the lounge, had a drink, almonds, cookies, I did some planespotting, then it was boarding time. The Porter Dash 8s hold 70 people. Our flight to Sudbury was 40 Minutes. In these 40 Minutes, we go a drink from REAL GLASS! and Terra Potato Chips (Look these up - they were good!). Landing was extremely bumpy. At Sudbury, there are no gates, so we get off the plane for a 20 second walk to the terminal and then a 5 second walk through the terminal, and were out. So from landing to getting out of the airport is about 2 Minutes. I was very surprised with the Dash 8, IT STOPPED SO QUICKLY. We touched down and in about 5 seconds we going about 10 MPH.

SUDBURY is a small-ish city in Northern Ontario. Porter, Bearskin Airlines, and Air Canada Express/Jazz Aviation are the only airlines to serve it. There are 4 Porter flights from the airport daily to Toronto, 10 Bearskin Flights, 2 AC Express/Jazz Aviation flights.
Toronto is Canada's largest city, with over 2.5 Citizens, Canada has 34 Million.

I have currently misplaced by Phone with my pictures, once I find it, I will post the pictures, I have about 75.

*I love Toronto Billy Bishop airport. WAY better then the big airport, Toronto-Pearson (Canada's busiest airport). Pearson you need to arrive 3 hours before flight for a Inter-Ontario flight (Dodgy).*

*I thought Premium Economy was OK, unfortunately there was no Business/First Class...Oh Well.

It is. We've also got Toronto-Pearson, Kitchener-Waterloo Regional Airport (American Airlines, WestJet), Hamilton John C. Munro International Airport (WestJet), and Toronto-Buttonville (No Airlines) and Oshawa Airport (Air Nunavut, Enterprise Air, Air Express Ontario), Which I still all still need to try. They apparently are supposed to be good.
