“It’s a significant milestone in our recovery, as we return to all of our year-round markets,” said Porter president and CEO Michael Deluce in an Oct. 6 news release. “Over 1,000 Porter team members are now at work supporting these efforts, as we focus on recalling our complete workforce and adding more flights in the coming months.”

Porter says that it has strengthened its existing standards with a focus on high levels of sanitization in order to protect the health of its passengers and team members. More information about the Healthy Flights program can be found on Porter’s website.
