ID Requirements

IMPORTANT: The passenger name on identification pieces must match the name on all boarding passes.

Travelling within Canada

To board a flight within Canada, all passengers are required to present:

  • One piece of valid government-issued identification that includes a photograph and the passenger's name, date of birth, and gender.
  • Two pieces of valid government-issued identification showing the passenger's name, date of birth, and gender, without photographs.

For children under 18 years of age travelling within Canada and accompanied by a parent and/or a legal guardian, Porter Airlines requests that they present one piece of valid identification (government-issued with or without photograph preferred), but this is NOT mandatory for travel.

For Unaccompanied Minors, ages 5-11, Porter Airlines requests that government issued ID be presented at time of their travel.

For Infants, Porter Airlines requires that government issued ID be presented so as to satisfy Transport Canada regulations.

Travelling to/from the United States

All passengers travelling to and from the United States are required to present a valid passport. Failure to do so will result in boarding being denied for International flights. Citizens of countries other than Canada and the United States should contact their consulate or embassy for boarding requirements. Proof of onward or return travel may be required at check-in.

Non-Canadian or United States Citizens

If you are not a Canadian or United States citizen please contact your embassy before arriving at the airport to find out what is required for travel.
