Welcome to this flight report! As an frequent traveller to NYC, i decided to try something different. Jet aircraft were an often go-to when commuting on the short Toronto-New York hop, however this time I tried the turboprop option. Operating this flight was Porter Airlines, a small airline based at Toronto Billy Bishop Airport.
Newark is infamous for the structure of their terminals. It can be quite difficult to snap good photos while waiting for your flight.
BA 77W & UA 764 parked at their respective gates awaiting pushback.
Porter has multiple departures from EWR daily. As one arrived, the other departed. Boarding began after our scheduled departure time.
Positioned at a window seat, was right by the prop blade but was still able to see.
Boarding was completed as quickly as possible. Shortly after pushback and taxi commenced.
Already late, our Q4 was about #6 for takeoff. Taxi was quite slow as we made our way for departure.I enjoyed the burnt orange sunset, however.
The aircraft lined up on RWY 4R and took off for YTZ. This departure warranted an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline.
Onward to Toronto!
Our route took us through northern Jersey and into Upstate NY. The sunset was phenomenal!
The frozen lakes and rivers gave a lovely contrast as the pink and purple hues of sun rays painted the sky.
The cabin took a light airy aura with little no no movement as the flight load was relatively light.
Descent into Downtown Toronto began before crossing the lake. Lights below illuminated, guiding the way.
The crew prepare the Q400 for arrival. The approach into YTZ offered nice views of the eastern Toronto skyline and beaches area.

Porter Airlines, although small, offers a different model in comparison to other carriers based in Canada. An easy enplane and deplane experience is ideal for the business traveller and also those who wish to avoid the hassle to large hub airports. Service was great and I'd gladly use Porter at any given opportunity.
