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.

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.

Canada's new ultra-affordable airline Lynx Air uses IBS Software's iFlight to power its operations


                           IBS Software has partnered with Lynx Air (Lynx), Canada's new ultra-affordable airline, to manage its flight operations.

IBS's iFlight digital platform will optimize Lynx's flight and crew operations in keeping with the airline's ultra low-cost business model. iFlight provides a fully digital, integrated operations platform, simplifying and automating processes and systems to deliver optimal efficiency, regulatory compliance and reduced operating costs. The modular design of iFlight will enable Lynx to scale operations effectively as the airline ramps up its fleet to 46 aircraft and expands its network reach over the coming years.

Lynx joins more than 50 airlines around the globe that currently use the iFlight portfolio. Lynx is the first ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC) to implement the integrated operations and crew platform solution.

As a new entrant into the Canadian aviation market, Lynx required a fast and seamless implementation process to support its ambitious launch program and timetable. IBS Software has invested in iFlight to ensure the system can be rolled out quickly and efficiently. iFlight was implemented for Lynx in just four months, fully remotely and with minimal need for customization.

The browser-based application can effectively scale to support operations and crew needs, regardless of size and business model. The modular architecture allows airlines to add functionality as their operational complexity grows, helping them optimize resources, employ emerging technologies, and boost decision-making processes. All modules are architected to add value to airline operations and provide significant benefits, so return on the investment is clear for the airlines.

April start for LynxAir Canada as ticket go on sale......

One of the latest additions to the Canadian aviation scene, Lynx Air is getting ready to launch services on 7th April, with tickets on sale now.

The Calgary-based airline inaugural flight will be from Calgary, its home base to Vancouver.  Also in the first raft of destinations, Lynx Air has announced for its launch schedule include Toronto, Winnipeg and Kelowna. 

The ultra-low-cost airline is launching at a difficult time with passenger numbers still depressed from the coronavirus pandemic downturn and the excessive over saturation of the Canadian travel market with numerous airlines trying to attract customers. 

Merren McArthur, CEO and president of Lynx Air told local media “It definitely is an evolving situation, however, we’re seeing there is a great deal of pent up demand for domestic travel in Canada and people still do want to fly and they still do want to travel,” she said. “We think it’s a real good opportunity for us because we’re focused on leisure travellers and people who want to connect with their family and friends.”

Starting with three new Boeing 737 MAX jets, Lynx Air follows in the footsteps of WestJet which also commenced operations with three earlier models of the twin jet back in 1996. The plan for the fledgling carrier is to have nearly 50 jets over the next seven years join its fleet as it overs more and more routes to its schedule.   The carriers new Boeing 737 seat up to 189 people and feature Boeing Sky Interior lighting, large overhead bins and extra legroom seats for extra charges. 

The airline is looking for lots of staff,  for more details Lynx Air (
