About Porter Airlines
Porter Airlines is a regional airline based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on the Toronto Islands. Porter Aviation Holdings Inc., formerly known as REGCO Holdings Inc., is the owner of Porter Aviation Holdings Inc., which operates daily scheduled flights between Toronto and destinations throughout Canada and the United States.
Porter's service at the Toronto airport started with some controversy in 2006. Robert Deluce, who is now the Executive Chairman of Porter Airlines, suggested establishing a regional airline that would operate Bombardier turboprop planes between Toronto and major Canadian cities. In 2003, a proposed bridge to the airport was shelved, resulting in legal disputes between Deluce and Toronto.
The airline lost in court, but the concept of the airline survived. REGCO purchased the island airport terminal used by Air Canada Jazz and terminated Air Canada's access with the compensation earned from the Toronto Port Authority for the litigation. Porter Airlines reservations hence then grown by leaps and bounds covering more destinations & planes.
Unfortunately in March 2020, Porter Airline flights were suspended due to a pandemic. Since then suspension of the airline has been announced a couple of times and will remain suspended till any further notice.

De Havilland Canada (DHC) launched a series of turboprop-powered regional airliners in 1984. DHC was later purchased by Boeing in1988, Bombardier in1992, and Longview Aviation Capital in 2019, all of which brought the de Havilland Canada brand back to life.
