Lynx Air, a new airline based in Canada, has begun operations, marking its entry into the country’s burgeoning ultra-low-cost carrier industry.
On April 7, 2022, the airline’s Boeing 737 MAX 8, designated C-GJSL, took off from Calgary International Airport (YYC) and landed at Vancouver International Airport (YVR), marking the airline’s maiden flight.
Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Kelowna, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, and Hamilton are among the nine locations now served by Lynx.
Sunwing Airlines, Flair Airlines, Air Canada Rouge, Porter Airlines, Swoop Airlines, and the soon-to-be-launched Canada Jetlines are among the country’s cheap airlines (JETMF).
