Porter Airlines has extended its hiatus once again.

With Ontario now well into a third wave of COVID-19, the airline has announced it will not resume operations on May 19, as previously planned.

The airline has set a new, tentative date to resume flights on June 21.

“In recent weeks, there has been open discussion by government officials about easing travel restrictions based on expectations that vaccination programs will be well advanced in the U.S. and Canada by early summer,” Michael Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines, said in a news release.

“We recognize that short-term public health measures have been enhanced recently in certain jurisdictions. At the same time, we are looking ahead to summer and preparing for the possibility of some travel restrictions unwinding. We will begin the process of rebuilding our operations as soon as conditions allow based on government decisions,” he continued.
