Porter Airlines Contracts With Tetra Tech For RNP Feasibility Study

Porter Airlines, a regional airline based in Toronto, Canada, has contracted with Tetra Tech AMT to conduct a Required Navigation Performance (RNP) solutions feasibility study for Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and to provide consultancy expertise in developing a noise footprint analysis.

Porter Airlines currently operates a fleet of Q400s into and out of the airport, which is its principal hub. The airline wants to investigate improvements to procedural efficiencies, with the primary focus of RNP procedure design to gain both safety and environmental operational benefits. The RNP project will be instrumental in creating a more effective operational network for Porter Airlines. The study will also advance the development of more efficient procedures to reduce emissions and aircraft noise, while improving weather-related delays, an enhancement that is critical to the growth of the community.
