"Porter is concluding its service in North Bay as of September 11, 2017, after the peak summer season," Porter Airlines said in an email statement to shortly after the announcement.  

"We never want to leave any market that we enter because we understand the value that competitive air service brings to a community in terms of lower airfares. Unfortunately, there was not enough consistent passenger demand for us to continue operating the daily flight we have there." 

The last flight took off before 7 a.m. this morning.  

Air Canada Jazz and Bearskin Airlines will continue to operate out of Jack Garland Airport and in December, holiday flights to Cuba will resume with Sunwing.
