The Toronto chapter of Fashion Group International would like to welcome Porter Airlines as an in-kind sponsor for the year of 2013. FGI Toronto is thrilled to have them on board. This is a tremendous opportunity for the fashion community, who will no doubt benefit from this kind of partnership.

Porter Airlines is famous for being a champion for all things Toronto. It goes to show that Porter cares about what Torontonians care about. Since their inception in 2006, Porter has aided travellers in getting to major destinations across Canada and the U.S. with ease, hospitality and convenience. They’ve even renovated and expanded their terminals to accommodate more passengers. What’s even better? Porter offers a comfortable seating area, complimentary beverages, munchies and Wi-Fi while you wait. So you can imagine how excited the FGI team is!

Their speedy service and attentive staff (wearing Pink Tartan, of course!) make it the best option for any city-dweller looking to fly for business or pleasure. Conveniently located in downtown Toronto, it’s only a hop, skip and a jump to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
