Lynx Air’s first flight from Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) took to the skies on Monday this week, destined for Calgary International Airport (YYC).
June 5 also marked the commencement of Lynx services between St. John’s International Airport (YYT), and Montréal.
Lynx’s Montréal network will continue to expand in coming weeks, with the addition of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) on June 23, 2023.
At that point, Lynx will be flying 26 flights in and out of Montréal weekly, which equates to 4914 seats.
This week’s competition
To celebrate Lynx’s inaugural Montréal service, Canada’s ultra-low-cost airline is launching a contest, offering the chance to win a free vacation package for two to Calgary, including flights and accommodation. The contest is running this week, and ends at 11:59 AM EST on Friday, June 9, 2023.
Lynx has also announced a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 35% off base fares for flights to and from Montréal, using the promo code: MONTREAL.
The fares are truly ultra-affordable, starting from as low as $59 inclusive of taxes and fees. The sale starts on June 5, 2023 and ends at 11:59 PM EST June 6, 2023. For complete sale and contest details, and to book an ultra-affordable fare, visit the airline website.
“We are thrilled to be adding Montréal to our domestic network today, bringing our ultra-affordable fares to a community which has historically been underserved by low fare airlines,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air.
“Our vision is to inspire more Canadians to fly, and we are proud to be offering an ultra-affordable option for Quebecers to explore some of Canada’s most popular destinations this summer.”
“Montréal is an iconic destination in its own right and we are excited to make this vibrant city more accessible to Canadians.”
“Whether you are traveling to explore the colourful streetscapes of St. John’s or to experience Montréal’s rich cultural heritage, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
“ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted to welcome this service from YUL to Calgary offered by our new airline partner, Lynx Air,” said Stéphane Lapierre, Vice President, Air Operations and Air Service Development, ADM.
“This direct route, like the one to St. John’s, represents a great opportunity for YUL to develop its domestic air services.”
“While ADM is constantly seeking to offer its passengers the most diversified range of air services possible, Lynx Air has launched an offering in the under-exploited niche of low-cost flights that will undoubtedly appeal to both business and leisure travellers.”
