HALIFAX - Porter Airlines has opened a crew base in Halifax and plans on hiring 40 new employees, including flight attendants and pilots.

The new crew base is the first outside Porter's headquarters at Toronto's Billy Bishop airport and the move will double the airline's current workforce in Halifax to 80 people.

It currently has customer service, ground handling and maintenance crew in the city......

PD: please do this smartly and don't go out of business.
AC: please don't kill PD.
WS: I don't care about you.

I wish Porter would create a YYZ to YWG route... AC and WJ seems to fill all its planes on that route and charges the earth... seems like a juicy route, ripe for the picking.

I'm not really sure why they haven't picked up that route yet. It's within the range of the Q400 aircraft, and surely there's more demand on that route than YYZ-YQT!

Perhaps there's another operational consideration we're not aware of.
