Lynx Air has continued its expansion in Eastern Canada and Quebec. The latest addition to its network is Quebec City, poised to join the Lynx route map starting June 6, 2024.

This network addition aims to provide affordable air travel links to Alberta and British Columbia, further solidifying Lynx’s presence in the region.

Following the recent success of its Montreal flights, Lynx is set to offer six flights a week to and from Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

Additionally, there will be ten weekly flights connecting Quebec City and Calgary International Airport (YYC).

The Quebec City – Vancouver route will operate as a “through flight” via Calgary, streamlining the travel experience with a single boarding pass and the convenience of checking bags through to the final destination.
