Lynx Air announces a major expansion at St. John’s

Lynx Air made this announcement:

At a press event in St. John’s today, Lynx Air (Lynx) announced the addition of two St. John’s routes to its network, creating links from St. John’s to each of Calgaryand Edmonton. These services are in addition to the previously announced flight service between St. John’s and Toronto.

Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline will launch its inaugural flight to St. John’s from Toronto on June 28, 2022.  Lynx will initially operate two services a week between Toronto and St. John’s and had planned to increase to daily services a month later.  However, the airline has reported that it has seen such strong demand for its St. John’s flights that it will expand its services to and from the popular city.

As of July 14, 2022, Lynx will offer a daily flight to Toronto and will start five through-flights a week from Edmonton to St. John’s.  On July 16, Lynx will start operating two through-flights a week from Calgary to St. John’s.  At that point, Lynx will be flying a total of 14 flights a week in and out of St. John’s, which is more than 2,646 seats weekly.  The Edmonton and Calgary “through-flights” will operate via Toronto, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.

The St. John’s expansion comes as Lynx embarks on a rapid ramp-up of its network in the lead-up to the busy summer period.  Lynx tickets are on sale now for 10 destinations coast to coast across Canada, including Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto Pearson, Hamilton, Halifax and St. John’s.  The airline operates a fleet of brand-new, fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft and plans to grow its fleet to more than 46 aircraft over the next five to seven years.
