Lynx Air Takes Off With Birthday Celebration

It has been a year since Lynx Air (Lynx) took to the skies with its first flight from Calgary to Vancouver on April 7, 2022.

And Lynx will be celebrating its Birthday all month, with a special Looney Tuesday Birthday seat sale and a contest for Canadians to win free flights for a year.

Two grand prize winners will each win one roundtrip per month for 12 months to fly anywhere on Lynx’s North American network.

Five additional winners will each receive one return flight to anywhere on Lynx’s network.

The contest runs from Tuesday, April 4, 2023, until 8:00 pm MDT on Tuesday, April 11, 2023.

Winners will be drawn on April 12, 2023, and contacted via email.

After launching one year ago, Lynx quickly expanded its fleet to six brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft and rolled out a domestic network of 10 destinations coast to coast across Canada.

The expansion has continued into 2023, with Lynx’s launch of flights to four popular sun destinations in the US early this year. Lynx Air plans to grow its fleet to 10 aircraft in 2023 and recently announced the addition of Montreal and Fredericton to its domestic network from June.

By Summer 2023, the airline will be operating over 250 flights a week across North America, which equates to over 45,000 seats. The airline’s ambitious growth plans will continue into 2024 and beyond, with firm commitments in place for a further 36 Boeing 737 aircraft, taking the fleet to 46 aircraft by 2028.

Merren McArthur, CEO and President of Lynx Air, said: “Lynx Air’s first year of flying has been an incredible journey, and we are very grateful to the 620,000 passengers who have chosen to fly Lynx over the last 12 months.”

McArthur continued: “I would also like to congratulate and thank the entire Lynx Air team for their unwavering commitment to ensuring our passengers arrive at their destination safely. Despite the challenges faced by the airline industry over the last year, I am proud to share that Lynx Air has had the lowest cancellation rate in Canada since launch.”
