LONDON – Lynx Air, the new Canadian Ultra-Low-Cost Airline has launched its new livery for their new 737 MAX fleet.
The Calgary-based airline’s 737 MAX 8 was proudly showcasing the new livery with white, red, and blue on its newly delivered aircraft with Canadian registration C-GJSL.
Lynx Air is expected to start its commercial operations from April 2022, thus bringing new low-cost competition in the North American markets.
The airline will be starting its operations in five Canadian cities with seven initial routes already on sale.
The airline will be operating 39 weekly flights during the peak summer 2022 season, with its new 737 MAX 8.
The first maiden flight for the Lynx is scheduled to take off from Calgary to Vancouver on 8th April 2022, following other routes on the network.
The strategic move adapted by the airline sets the separate ground amongst fellow LCC competitors, as the Lynx has pre-set capacity competition on these routes.
Lynx has published its fares to lure the market competition by positioning its offerings at the best rates. Kelowna to Vancouver flight is being offered from CA$39 inclusive of taxes, while longer duration flight between Toronto to Vancouver is priced from CA$59.
The carrier also offers one personal item included in the ticket price, but as the ULCC model dictates, the passengers will have to pay the additional costs for other items and onboard services.
Lynx has rebranded itself from its predecessor operational model of charter airline specialized in transporting oil-sand workers to its remote sites in Alberta, Canada.
With a heavy emphasis on using Boeing 737-700 and 800 for these operations, the new Lynx has still emphasized its loyalty towards Boeing and thus included 737 MAX 8 in its new operations.
Meeren McArthur, Lynx Air CEO and President has expressed that the airline has orders and leasing agreements to boost its fleets to 46 of Boeings latest narrow-bodied jets within the span of seven years, while the airline is already set to welcome 3 new jets by December 2022.
Taking on to social media, the airline expressed “Lynx Air is Canada’s newest ultra-affordable airline, on a mission to make air travel accessible for all. With airfare sky-high in Canada, we give value-seeking travelers an affordable, safe, and customer-first flying experience”
