Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline, Lynx Air, has announced it is expanding its network and destination list with the addition of Victoria International Airport.
With this addition of Victoria, the Lynx’s network now flies to six Canadian cities including Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Kelowna.
The airline says that beginning Thursday, May 12, passengers will be able to travel to see the “breathtaking coastal views” that Victoria has to offer.
The airline plans on offering two services per week between Calgary and Victoria, increasing to three weekly trips by June 22, 2022.
Lynx says that prices will start at $39 one way from Victoria to Calgary and $49 one way in the opposite direction, making the baseline return trip come in under the $100 mark.
“As the economy begins to reopen, we are pleased to see Lynx introduce service between Calgary and Victoria commencing in May. A 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,” said Geoff Dickson, President and CEO, Victoria Airport Authority.
In addition to expanding service to Victoria, Lynx also announced more options for travellers hoping to fly between Winnipeg and Toronto as well.
“We are excited to be adding beautiful Victoria to our network and to be offering more ultra-affordable travel options for travellers wanting to fly between Toronto and Winnipeg,” said Merren McArthur, CEO, Lynx Air. “We will continue to ramp up our schedule in the lead-up to summer, so please stay tuned for more updates, as we continue our mission to make air travel more affordable for all Canadians.”
