You can imagine that'll likely be the plan if you look at how aggressively Porter is expanding with their E2 fleet. There is only so much talent you can acquire operating out of the east.

If you choose CYYZ as a hub and have a tight aircraft movement schedule (turns 60 minutes or less) be prepared for horrible OTP performance. And that is rain or shine.

Encore routinely plans 30 minute turns for the Q400 out of Toronto.

Does a Q400 have 125 seats?

yeg and yyc bases asap , they are recruiting ames n crew chiefs . according to the jobs on porters website.

my question is if you are startn up with jets and want good returns on capital fly under the big 2 radar, why not slide a couple of direct flights a day from yqf to yyz. There are 170k people 30 min north and south of yqf runway good length ils lpv approach. and im sure porter could negotiate a good deal on landing fees and overnight parking. there is catsa already there . would be like yxx 20 years later when wj first flew in there now major hub for swoop encore jazz etc

I think they would get a ton of applications if they opened a YYC or YEG base. I know I would apply. Porter operates pretty small bases so it could definitely be a possibility, especially with how much they want to expand.

Porter pays less than everyone, except maybe Swoop. How are they possibly going to crew 50 jets?

They pay the same as WJ at least for FO. Also fewer deductions, overtime kicks in sooner etc. Also as show in another thread WJ is 2-3 years on reserve and 10-15 years for an upgrade. Porter over wj swoop encore is a no brainer in my mind.

They came out with their pay scale during a pandemic and were above most until recently. With the bump everyone else is getting, they will eventually have to follow suit.

Not that I want to assist Porter recruitment but that is incorrect.
