Lynx Air adds Tampa Bay to its network

The Canadian budget carrier Lynx Air has announced a further expansion of its US network with the addition of non-stop flights to Tampa International from both Toronto Pearson International Airport and Montréal Pierre Trudeau International.

Lynx will operate four services a week from both Toronto and Montréal, beginning November 16, 2023, and November 17, 2023, respectively. These additions will mean Lynx Air offers services to both Orlando and Tampa Bay, two of the most popular tourist destinations in Florida. By the end of Fall, Lynx will be offering 66 services a week to and from Florida serving Toronto, Montréal, Calgary, and Vancouver.

"We are thrilled to connect sun-seekers from Ontario and Quebec to Tampa Bay, one of the most vibrant destinations in the US. With beautiful beaches, world-class entertainment, and cultural experiences, Tampa Bay offers something for everyone,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air. “Today’s announcement represents a significant expansion of our footprint in Florida. We launched services to Orlando earlier this year and it is already one of our most popular destinations. We are proud to provide Canadians with more ultra-affordable options to take in the sights and attractions of this beautiful region of the United States.”

“Tampa International Airport is proud to offer more travel options from Toronto and Montreal with our new airline partner Lynx Air, the first Canadian carrier to launch new service to TPA since the pandemic. Our community is closely linked with our Canadian neighbours, who are the largest source of international visitation, homeownership and foreign direct investment in Tampa Bay. We look forward to better serving our travellers to and from Canada and opening doors to all the wonderful things our growing region has to offer,” said TPA CEO Joe Lopano.

Lynx launched its first flight just over 15 months ago and today’s announcement takes its total network reach to 17 destinations across North America, including five US destinations. Lynx operates a fleet of seven brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft, with plans to grow its fleet to 10 aircraft by the end of 2023 and to 46 aircraft over the next four to five years.
