Canadian Transportation Agency yesterday issued licenses to startup Porter Airlines to operate domestic and nonscheduled international services using medium aircraft. The carrier plans initially to operate 10 daily flights between Toronto City Centre Airport and Ottawa using 70-seat Q400s and later will expand to destinations in Canada and the US within about 300 mi. of Toronto. A precise startup date has not been announced but operations are expected to commence within weeks.
