    Porter Airlines plans to resume flights starting September 8 to select Canadian destinations including Toronto Island Airport, Ottawa, Montreal and Thunder Bay, adding U.S. stops on September 17, marking an end to a dry spell of nearly a year and a half.

    The company’s plans to take to the skies have been pushed back 11 times during the pandemic, but the CEO is confident about the latest plan.

    “We’ll be adding flights throughout September and into early October. And we’ll have our entire route network of year round destinations up and running prior to Canadian Thanksgiving,” says Porter CEO Michael Deluce.

    Starting this week fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents who test negative for COVID-19 don’t have to quarantine for 14 days.

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
