Canadian carrier Lynx Air has launched its inaugural flight from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) this week. This latest offering further bolsters the airline’s expanding Toronto network.
Having taken to the skies for the first time in 2022, Lynx Air emerged with a mission to revolutionize Canadian air travel.
The airline aims to inspire a greater number of Canadians to explore the skies by offering an exceptional flying experience at an incredibly affordable price point.
Los Angeles: Lynx US Expansion
The commencement of the Toronto to Los Angeles route marks the initiation of Lynx’s expansion in the United States ahead of the winter season. Strategically timed ahead of the fall and winter seasons, it provides ‘sun seeker’ travelers a further option for their holiday travel plans.
In addition to the new Toronto-Los Angeles route, Lynx Air already operates flights connecting Toronto and Orlando.
The airline’s route portfolio will further expand to encompass Phoenix, Fort Myers, and Tampa Bay in the near future. These destinations are currently available for booking.
Remarkable Growth Trajectory
As 2023 progresses, Lynx Air is poised for remarkable growth, aiming to offer more than 22,000 seats per week across its North American network to and from Toronto.
This projection signifies an impressive 260% increase in capacity compared to the previous year. To accommodate this expansion, Lynx has established a pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto, generating 101 new job opportunities within the region.
Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air, emphasizes the airline’s commitment to transforming air travel dynamics in the Toronto market. Historically, the city has faced limited service options from low-cost carriers, resulting in inflated airfares.
Lynx Air seeks to challenge this status quo by offering budget-friendly services between Toronto and the vibrant City of Angels.
Whether travelers are embarking on a journey to witness the glamour of Hollywood or bask in the sun on Southern California’s iconic beaches, Lynx Air promises an exceptional flying experience without breaking the bank.
Industry Voices Endorse the Move
Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, applauds Lynx Air’s strategic expansion. The new Toronto-Los Angeles route contributes another enticing option for passengers seeking to explore sunny California.
Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer of Los Angeles World Airports, also joins the chorus of voices celebrating this new endeavor. Erbacci highlights the route’s significance in strengthening the connection between the two cities and enhancing the overall travel experience.
He expresses confidence in Lynx Air’s ability to deliver excellence and extends his congratulations on the airline’s ongoing success.
The airline was recently awarded Youngest Fleet in North America by ch-aviation. Lynx operates a brand-new fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft, bringing an elevated customer experience to low-cost travel in Canada.
These ultra-efficient and reliable aircraft are 20% more fuel efficient than previous generation aircraft, reducing Lynx’s carbon footprint, and making Lynx one of Canada’s most sustainable airlines.
Lynx is a privately owned Canadian airline with the financial backing and industry expertise required to transform the Canadian aviation landscape.
