Porter Airlines (P3, Toronto Billy Bishop City Centre) has exercised its purchase rights to acquire an additional twenty-five E195-E2s, increasing its commitment for the type to 75 units. The airline retains another 25 unconverted purchase rights.

Deliveries of the newly ordered batch will begin in 2025, continuing the delivery stream of the previously ordered 50 aircraft.

"At Porter, we entered a new era when we began operating the E195-E2 earlier this year. The jet is exceeding our expectations, especially in terms of fuel use," president and CEO Michael Deluce said. "These additional 25 orders enable us to continue extending our reach throughout North America, with more exciting new destinations."

The Canadian carrier operates twenty-four E195-E2s through its technical AOC Porter Airlines Canada. The aircraft - the first jets in Porter Airlines' history - are deployed mainly on cross-country services to the Canadian West Coast and international routes to the US West Coast and Florida from the Toronto Pearson and Ottawa International bases. The airline also operates twenty-nine DHC-8-Q400s, which operate regional routes in eastern Canada and the north-eastern US.

Porter Airlines' E195-E2s are configured for up to 132 passengers, including 36 economy plus seats and 96 standard economy seats.
