Lynx Air, the ultra-affordable airline in Canada, has launched its inaugural flight from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) this week. This marks a significant milestone in the airline’s expansion plans for its Toronto network.
Having taken flight for the first time in 2022, Lynx Air aims to inspire more Canadians to explore air travel by providing a remarkable flying experience at an incredibly reasonable price point.
First US Flights for Lynx Air
The launch of this new route signifies Lynx Air’s foray into the US market, with further expansion planned for the autumn and winter seasons. In addition to its existing flights between Toronto and Orlando, Lynx Air will soon offer connections to Phoenix, Fort Myers, and Tampa Bay from Toronto. Tickets for these destinations are already available for purchase. With the projected increase in capacity, Lynx Air will provide more than 22,000 weekly seats across its North American network to and from Toronto by December 2023. This represents a remarkable 260 percent growth compared to the previous year.
New Pilot and Cabin Crew Base in Toronto
To support this expansion, Lynx Air has recently established a dedicated pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto, creating 101 new jobs in the region. The airline is committed to delivering exceptional service and fostering travel opportunities for Canadians.
“Toronto is our fastest growing hub because it has historically been underserved by low-cost carriers and that means airfares have been too high for too long,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air. “Lynx Air aims to change that. We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier offering services between Toronto and the City of Angels. Whether you are travelling to do some star-spotting in Hollywood, or to soak up the sun on one of the iconic Southern California beaches, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
Toronto Pearson and LAX Welcome New Lynx Air Flights
“We are pleased to see Lynx add LAX to their roster of destinations served from Toronto Pearson. This new service will undoubtedly provide passengers with another greater option to fly to sunny California,” said Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships at Greater Toronto Airports Authority.
“We are thrilled to have Lynx Air expand its service at LAX with the addition of the new route between LAX and Toronto, one of our most popular destinations in Canada,” said Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles World Airports. “This route not only strengthens the ties between our two cities but also reinforces our commitment to serving our passengers’ needs and offering an exceptional travel experience. We congratulate Lynx Air and look forward to the airline’s continued success.”
