Lynx Air, Canada’s newest ultra-low-cost carrier, will begin commercial flights in April, with tickets for seven domestic routes available now.
During the peak summer season, the Canadian airline serves seven destinations in total, covering five cities with 39 weekly flights. Lynx will compete on each route with three to five other airlines, using its own Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
Merren McArthur, the former CEO of Tigerair Australia, will oversee the airline, which will begin operations from Calgary International Airport with three Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
From its Alberta base, the airline plans to serve Kelowna, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg. It will also fly to Kelowna, Toronto, and Winnipeg from Vancouver.
Enerjet, a Calgary-based charter airline that specialized in flying oil-sands workers to job sites in Alberta, as well as contract work for tour operators, was previously known as Lynx.
However, in late 2018, it announced plans to become an ultra-low-cost carrier, backed by Canadian investors and the private equity firm Indigo Partners, which also owns Frontier Airlines and Wizz Air.
