Porter Airlines to service Timmins, Ontario (and all of its 200 residents)
Beloved airline and free alcohol dispensary Porter Airlines celebrated its fifth birthday this month by expanding service to Timmins. The local airport provides access to the hamlet’s many attractions and serves as an important gateway to the rest of Northern Ontario. The three daily flights begin January 16, 2012, a month after Burlington, Vermont, is also added to the roster. This latest destination is one more tiny reason to choose Porter, especially with Air Canada hell-bent on a strike. New flights and beer versus pissed-off flight attendants—you decide.
