PITTSBURGH (AP) - Air Canada will no longer be the only airline at Pittsburgh International Airport offering daily direct flights to Toronto.

Porter Airlines, a Toronto-based regional airline, will start offering two daily flights from Pittsburgh to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport in September, making it the fourth airline this year to announce service at the Pittsburgh airport.

Airport officials say the Toronto City airport’s proximity to the city could be more convenient for business travelers.

Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis says the new service has been in talks for about a year. She says travelers have wanted improved service to Toronto and other Canadian cities. Porter offers connecting flights to Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.

Roundtrip fares from Pittsburgh will start at $286.
