Canada acquires new airline that promises cheap flights

A new airline has landed in Canada and, like others before, it promises cheap flights.

Lynx Air announced that it was “Canada’s newest ultra-affordable airline”. The new airline follows other low-cost options such as Flair Airlines, which has just added three new cities, and Pique, which experienced issues in 2019 with a number of cancellations.

The ultra-low-cost model seems to work in Europe with airlines such as Ryanair and EasyJet are doing well in the market, but not during closings.

Now that Canada appears to be emerging from months of containment, with the border reopening with the United States, this could be a sign of a return to normal travel. Lately, several airlines have announced new routes, such as direct flights to Venice and cheap flights to Dublin.

Lynx will be based in Calgary and will have a fleet of new Boeing 737s, according to a press release.

The airline has orders and leases for 46 planes over the next seven years to meet anticipated demand. The first three Boeing 737s, which will also be fuel efficient, are expected in early 2022.

“We are thrilled to bring competition and choice to the Canadian aviation market at a time when Canadians yearn for the opportunity to fly again, whether to see friends and family or to take a long-awaited vacation, ”said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx.

McArthur said airlines would offer “pay-per-view fares,” meaning people can choose the services they want for the flights.

No destination or price is yet indicated on the Lynx Air website but they plan to announce routes and times soon.

Things are looking up for safe travel in 2022 – don’t forget to upload your vaccination passport and be prepared for possible delays as the industry takes off again.
