New Toronto - Fort Myers service from Lynx Airlines

        Lynx Air’s inaugural flight to the Fort Myers area took off on Friday last week from Toronto Pearson International Airport.  Canada’s ultra-affordable airline will operate four flights per week between Toronto and Fort Myers, flying brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft.

This latest launch marks the continued US expansion of Lynx for the winter months. The airline already operates flights between Toronto and Orlando, Tampa Bay, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. All of these destinations are now on sale. Lynx flies more than 21,500 seats per week across its North American network to and from Toronto, representing a growth of more than 250 per cent from last year.  This summer, Lynx established a pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto to support this growth, creating 101 new jobs in the region.  

"Toronto has emerged as our fastest-growing hub, primarily due to a longstanding gap in affordable air travel options. The city has endured high airfares for a long time and was underserved by low-cost carriers. We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier connecting Toronto and Fort Myers, and we are dedicated to making travel accessible and enjoyable. Whether you're seeking outdoor adventures or a tranquil retreat on sun-soaked beaches, Lynx ensures an exceptional flying experience at an unbelievably affordable price," stated Vijay Bathija, CCO of Lynx Air.

BOC Aviation announces the first of 11 Boeing 737 MAX 8 delivered to Lynx Air.


BOC Aviation Limited the aircraft operating leasing company has confirmed it has delivered the first of 11 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft on lease to Lynx Air.  All 11 aircraft are part of the BOC's existing order book of planes, some of which are understood to be coming from the 130+ 737 MAX jets that are still in storage following the types grounding. The jets that BOC is leasing to Lynx are powered by CFM LEAP-1B engines. 

“We are delighted to welcome Lynx as a new customer. This delivery will enable the airline to serve its customers with one of the most fuel-efficient and technologically advanced aircraft flying today,” said Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, BOC Aviation. “This transaction demonstrates our ability to provide popular, modern aircraft to our customers, aligned with our strategy of generating long-term sustainable growth.” 

“We are thrilled to be receiving our seventh Boeing 737 aircraft, which will enable us to expand our North American network and offer our ultra-affordable fares and great flying experience to more Canadians,” said Merren McArthur, CEO and President of Lynx Air. “We are looking forward to continuing our successful partnership with BOC Aviation and Boeing, as we continue to transform the aviation market in Canada.”

Boeing announced an issue with the 737 MAX in the last couple of weeks which affects the connection of the tail fin to the rest of the aircraft.  The fault is considered to be just a 'gnarly defect' which doesn't affect the airworthiness of the plane, yet the issue and rectifying it will cause delays to the production rate the aircraft maker warns. 

It is unknown exactly how many jets the latest flaw affects, although many believe it is all jets produced since 2019 and repairs on completed aircraft could take weeks, although during the production such corrections will only take a couple of days. 

 Last week Boeing President and CEO Dave Calhoun said:  "We will work diligently through rework of affected airplanes in production and storage to ensure each meets our standards prior to delivery. This effort will impact the timing of deliveries over the next several months; however, we remain confident in the operational and financial goals we set for this year, as well as for the longer term."

Lynx Air is one of the new ultra-low-cost Canadian airlines which is on a mission to make air travel accessible to all, with ultra-affordable fares and a customer-focused flying experience. Lynx is a privately owned airline and says it has the financial backing and industry expertise required to transform the Canadian aviation landscape which is already over-subscribed with excess airline capacity.  


BOC Aviation is a leading global aircraft operating leasing company with a fleet of 635 aircraft owned, managed and on order.  Its owned and managed fleet was leased to 86 airlines in 39 countries and regions worldwide as at 31 March 2023.

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.
