Lynx Air Growth in Toronto

In addition to the new route, Lynx operates flights from Toronto to popular destinations. They include Orlando, Tampa Bay, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. With over 21,500 seats per week, Lynx has significantly increased its North American network. The airline is experiencing a remarkable growth of more than 250% compared to last year.

“Toronto has emerged as our fastest-growing hub, primarily due to a longstanding gap in affordable air travel options. The city has endured high airfares for a long time and was underserved by low-cost carriers. We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier connecting Toronto and Fort Myers, and we are dedicated to making travel accessible and enjoyable. Whether you’re seeking outdoor adventures or a tranquil retreat on sun-soaked beaches, Lynx ensures an exceptional flying experience at an unbelievably affordable price,” stated Vijay Bathija, CCO of Lynx Air.

“We are proud to have been a partner in Lynx’s substantial growth from Toronto Pearson over the last year,” said Kurush Minocher, Executive Director of Customer Experience and Airline Relations at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “Fort Myers will be Lynx’s fifth transborder destination from Toronto, providing our passengers with increased choice to this top warm weather destination.”

“We want to extend Lynx Air a warm welcome from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW),” said Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M., Executive Director of the Lee County Port Authority. “Today, Lynx launches its first nonstop flight into Fort Myers from Toronto, Canada (YYZ), a popular destination for residents and visitors coming to Southwest Florida, which will be a great new low-cost option for travelers to enjoy.”

To support this expansion, Lynx has established a pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto. This has created 101 new jobs in the region. The strategic move aims to enhance Lynx services and provide better connectivity for travelers.
