Porter Air to NYC
One of the shining benefits of working from Toronto is the Porter Air experience flying out from the downtown Toronto Island Airport. While waiting for a flight to New York, one realizes how small but thoughtful details in hospitality and design can elevate an experience exponentially. Their completely civilized yet simple offering of a complimentary cappuccino, newspaper and wireless internet (to be enjoyed whilst ensconced in a comfortable lounge) transforms the usually bleak cattle call of air travel into a welcome and tranquil pause between great cities. Plus, the little ferry ride to the Island adds a childlike moment of pleasure and anticipation.
