Porter Airlines
The award recognizes airlines that primarily operate within North America

Porter Airlines was selected as Best Regional Airline in North America at the 2024 Skytrax World Airline Awards.

The category includes airlines that primarily or exclusively fly within North America. Over 100 countries participate in the world’s largest airline passenger satisfaction survey to select the award winners. This year’s presentation ceremony was held in London, England.

Porter continues to challenge the definition of economy air travel across North America by emphasizing an overall elevated economy experience on board. This includes a two-by-two configuration on every aircraft, ensuring no middle seats on any flight. The distinct regional service that Porter has developed since 2006 is the foundation for this standard in a network that now stretches across North America. 


In the past 18 months, the airline has:

  • Hired more than 2,000 new team members
  • Taken delivery of 35 new Embraer E195-E2s 
  • Total fleet size of 64, including 29 Dash 8-400 aircraft
  • Announced dozens of new routes and 20 new destinations


The airline now flies as far west as Victoria and as far east as St. John’s in Canada. It is also making further headway into the U.S., currently with five destinations in Florida, as well as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. Phoenix will also launch this winter.

Skytrax introduced the category for Best Regional Airline in North America in 2014. Porter is also one of only three carriers in North America to qualify for Skytrax’s Official 4-Star Rating, recognizing airlines that deliver overall quality performance.
