Canada’s newest ultra low-cost airline, Lynx Air, has added a sixth city to its network, along with another route between its existing destinations.
According to a press release from the airline, Lynx will begin service to Victoria, BC, on May 12, 2022. Lynx will start by offering two flights a week between Calgary and Victoria, and plans to increase service to three times weekly on June 22, 2022.
Fares start at $39 one way from Victoria to Calgary, and $49 one way from Calgary to Victoria.
With this addition, the low-cost carrier will offer service in six Canadian cities: Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Kelowna, and Victoria.
Passengers will also soon be able to fly between Toronto and Winnipeg, with two flights per week between these two cities beginning Thursday, May 5, 2022. Flights between Toronto and Winnipeg will start at $69 one way.
“We are excited to be adding beautiful Victoria to our network and to be offering more ultra-affordable travel options for travellers wanting to fly between Toronto and Winnipeg,” said Merren McArthur, CEO, Lynx Air.
