Non-rev policy

Porter Staff, dependents, parents and pass holders get priority above others.


Passengers have the ability to show up at the airport and list themselves to fly on an earlier flight. Many passengers make use of this. These passenger numbers show up on the standby list and they have the highest priority. Therefore on the day of departure, the standby numbers will change by the hour. Also, passengers flying early means the later flights will have more seats available.


All non-rev staff are eligible for 2 checked baggage of standard size. Please refer to flyporter.com for baggage specifications.


Listing is required for each flight. No exceptions on this.


All non-rev staff must check-in online or at the check-in counters. Seat numbers will be assigned at the gate. If you are at YTZ the seat numbers will be assigned at the customer service counters past security.


Non-rev staff board last. If you have a frequent flyer status, need special assistance or traveling with a child you will get priority.


All non-rev staff are eligible for upgrades. Porter Airlines staff will get priority. Please don't ask for upgrade, the check-in staff will automatically assign you on space available basis. This includes the requirement to meet the inflight services. Irrespective of standby or not, Porter wants everyone to experience proper service. If that cannot be met, the upgrade won't be given.
