Porter Airlines has extended its suspension of all flights until June 29, the company announced on Monday.

The airline revealed the initial temporary suspension of all its flights in mid-March, and the restart was initially planned for June 1.

It was a date that the company “believed was reasonable at the time.”

“While there are many promising signs about how COVID-19 is being contained, it is also clear that the current border restrictions, regional stay-at-home orders and limits on large gatherings will remain in place for many regions through much of May and into June,” reads a release.

“This makes it difficult for people to travel, so Porter will continue aligning its approach with the public health response.”

When the return to flying is set in motion, the company promises a responsible approach that takes health and safety precautions into account.

Porter is waiving change and cancellation fees on all fares booked by June 29. This also applies to Porter Escapes vacation packages.

Tickets for travel beginning June 29 are now available.
