During the summer season, book your flight with Porter Airlines for twice weekly service into the Muskoka Airport from Toronto’s Billy Bishop Airport at FlyPorter.com (schedule posted annual in late winter.) Explorers’ Edge (that’s us!) has also partnered with Hammond Transportation to operate a hassle-free shuttle service at the Muskoka Airport to connect you when Porter Airline flights are in operation. If you are flying in or out of the region, use the shuttle to access any one of the 5 Designated Routes that span from Algonquin in the east to Georgian Bay in the west. (NOTE: this seasonal service was put on hold during the pandemic; an announcement regarding its re-launch will be made in 2022).
