More expansion for Lynx Air


Lynx Air, one of  Canada's leading ultra-affordable airlines has commenced flights from Victoria International Airport to Calgary International Airport with a twice-weekly service.  The airline says it will expand the service to three times a week in the run-up to summer.  

Lynx's network spans 10 destinations coast to coast across Canada, including Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto Pearson, Hamilton, Halifax, and St. John's. The airline operates a fleet of brand-new, fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft and plans to grow its fleet to more than 46 aircraft over the next five to seven years.

Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air said:  "We are excited to be bringing our ultra-affordable fares to the community of Victoria and Vancouver Island. Whether you are travelling to connect with friends and family, to explore the beautiful coastline of Vancouver Island or to take in the vibrant culture and historic architecture of the Garden City, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price."


Geoff Dickson, President and CEO, of Victoria Airport Authority, said:  "As the economy begins to reopen, we are pleased to see Lynx introduce service between Calgary and Victoria. An ultra-low-cost airline like Lynx will offer affordable travel options for our community and provide opportunities for travellers to explore the beauty and culture of Victoria."

Lynx Air recently announced it will launch its inaugural flight to St. John’s from Toronto on 28th June and will initially operate the route twice a week, with the promise to upgrade it to a daily service by the 14th of July.  The carrier also confirmed it will start five through-flights a week from Edmonton to St. John’s. On July 16, Lynx will start operating two through-flights a week from Calgary to St. John’s. At that point, Lynx will be flying a total of 14 flights a week in and out of St. John’s.  The Edmonton and Calgary “through-flights” will operate via Toronto, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.

Lynx Air to operate a fleet of brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, the same type that suffered fatal crashes in October 2018 and March 2019 that cost the lives of 346 people due to design flaws and short-cuts taken by manufacturer Boeing.  Lynx has taken the decision to obfuscate the truth from its customers by dropping all mention of the MAX name and just using the 737-8 designation on its planes. The airline claims all its aircraft meet the highest internationally certified safety standards and are certified by Transport Canada.
