Porter expansion rumours

No one seems to have drawn attention to last week's story (2009 April 14) from the Financial Post. Here are the highlights:

"We've got numerous short-term growth opportunities," Mr. Deluce said Tuesday in an interview, "but certainly an expansion of Porter from the East and moving West is possible. We've always thought the brand was exportable."

While those plans are a little further out, destinations like Boston, Washington, and Philadelphia remain on Porter's radar in the near-term, as are flights to Windsor, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins and Sudbury, as the airline takes on new planes, he said.

(and then this...)

In the meantime, Porter is busy upgrading its reservation system to allow for code-share agreements with U.S. carriers in places in Newark and Chicago within the next six months, he added.

"Both of those locations make really good sense to offer some down-the-line destinations that are beyond the points we serve," he said.
