Porter suspended operations on March 21, 2020, due to the pandemic.

The airline has delayed the resumption of its flights several times. It had most recently planned to restart operations on June 21.

Porter chief executive Michael Deluce says it's encouraging to see the recovery of the aviation industry in the U.S.
