Porter Airlines of Toronto has signed a firm order to acquire four Q400 NextGen turboprop airliners with options on an additional six Q400 NextGen aircraft.

Based on the list price for the Q400 NextGen aircraft, Porter’s firm order is valued at approximately US$120 million, which could increase to US$308 million should all six options be converted to firm orders.

The four aircraft will increase Porter’s fleet of Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft to 24. Porter took delivery of its 20th aircraft, and the 300th Q400 aircraft to be delivered, in April 2010.

Porter began operations in October 2006 with flights to Ottawa and now serves 14 destinations in Canada and the US.

“Bombardier’s Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft’s quiet comfort, fuel-efficiency and lower environmental footprint help us to deliver on our ‘flying refined’ brand promise, and they continue to be the ideal aircraft for our operations based at the urban Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport,” said Robert Deluce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Porter Airlines.

Optimized for short-haul operations, the Q400 NextGen aircraft can seat between 70 and 80 passengers.
