Canada’s Lynx Air will add two new seasonal routes – from Hamilton to Vancouver and from Toronto to Kelowna, providing a low-cost option between these popular destinations.

Lynx Air is set to add the two new seasonal summer services commencing next month.

Services between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Kelowna International Airport (YLW) will start April 13, 2023.  The second service between Hamilton’s John C. Munroe International Airport (YHM) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) will start shortly thereafter on April 16, 2023.

Both services will operate as “through flights” via Calgary International Airport (YYC), providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.

“As Canadians look to book their Summer vacation, we are excited to offer more ultra-affordable links between the communities of Kelowna, Toronto, Hamilton and Vancouver,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx.

“We know the airline industry has had some challenges over the last 12 months and we want to assure Canadians that they can book with confidence on Lynx.”

“I am proud to say that since our launch in April 2022, Lynx has had the lowest cancellation rate in Canada.”

“Whether you are flying to visit loved ones or for a well-earned vacation, Lynx Air will provide a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”


Vancouver travel

Vancouver remains a popular travel destination for Canadians. It is one of the most visited cities in Canada and is known for its natural beauty, outdoor activities, cultural attractions, and diverse food scene.

Vancouver is located on the west coast of Canada, in the province of British Columbia, and is a gateway to many popular tourist destinations such as Whistler, Victoria, and the Canadian Rockies.

Many Canadians choose to visit Vancouver to experience its unique blend of urban and natural attractions, and to explore the city’s vibrant neighborhoods, parks, and beaches.

Cole Horncastle, Executive Managing Director of John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport attested to that popularity, saying:

“Vancouver is a destination that our passengers have requested year over year, so we are very excited that Lynx is adding a Vancouver connection and expanding its services from Hamilton International Airport.”

“The addition of this long-awaited destination provides travellers from across Southern Ontario another low-cost, affordable option to explore the beautiful landscapes and rich history of Canada’s west coast.”

“April is our one-year anniversary of having Lynx operating at YLW and providing affordable options for Okanagan residents,” says Sam Samaddar, Airport Director, Kelowna International Airport.

“I am happy to see Lynx expand and offer routes to popular destinations, such as Toronto.”
