An ultra-low-cost airline just began offering a new route from Orlando to one of the largest cities in Canada, with tickets starting at $135 each way.
Lynx Air began service between Orlando and Calgary, Alberta on Tuesday. The airline says it will operate two flights per week between the Orlando International Airport and the Calgary International Airport.
With the addition of Calgary, Lynx Air now offers service between Orlando and three cities in Canada, including Toronto and Montréal. The company says it plans to add Vancouver to that list of cities later this month.
The company says its new route will increase the number of seats connecting Orlando and Canada by 14 per cent over the winter months.
“By December 2023, Lynx will fly more than 43,000 seats per week across its North American network, representing a 145 percent growth from the previous year,” reads a statement from the airline.
“As winter approaches, we are excited to launch our first flight between Calgary and Orlando, offering an affordable option for Canadians to visit this very popular holiday spot, with its famous theme parks, world-class golf, and sunny weather,” said Jim Sullivan, CEO of Lynx Air. “Whether you are traveling to visit family and friends or craving a warm winter getaway, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
Founded as Enerjet in 2006, the company rebranded itself as Lynx Air in November 2021. It began offering flights in April 2022 between Canadian airports before expanding throughout the area.
Fares between Calgary and Orlando start at $135 each way. For more information on the airline, or to schedule a flight, visit Lynx Air online.
