The airport is served almost exclusively by Porter Airlines with 74 seat Bombardier Q400 Turboprops on routes in eastern Canada and to the US.....and with a shuttle type frequency from downtown.....Porter is a competitor to VIA especially on the Ottawa and Montreal routes. (Air Canada Express also has Q400 flights to Montreal)
And when those Porter Q400s aren't busy on weekends they do runs to sun destinations such as Melbourne, Florida and Myrtle Beach..and ski resorts at Mt. Tramblant QC and Burlington VT out of the Island Airport.https://www.flyporter.com/en-ca/
I flew with Porter recently to Halifax for the convenience of just walking to the plane from my downtown hotel. It's a niche
airline with a strong following. Even on the lowest priced ticket....everyone gets to use the business class lounge with complimentary snacks, coffee and soft drinks....and once on the plane even complimentary beer and wine.
