Lynx Air (Lynx) launched its inaugural flight to the United States on Friday, departing from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and arriving at the new Terminal C at Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline will operate four direct flights per week between Toronto and Orlando, flying brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft.

To celebrate Lynx’s inaugural Orlando service, the airline is offering a chance to win a vacation package for four, including flights, accommodation, and passes to Orlando theme parks.

Lynx is also launching a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 50% off base fares for flights from Toronto to Orlando, using the promo code: FLYUSA. Fares start from as low as $109* inclusive of taxes and fees.

The sale starts on January 27 and ends at 11:59 PM EST January 30, 2023.  For complete sale and contest details, and to book an ultra-affordable fare, visit flylynxUSA.com.

“Lynx Air took to the Canadian skies for the very first time just over nine months ago, and we are excited to be already expanding across the border into the USA” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx.

“The choice of Orlando as our first US destination was easy – it is a very popular holiday spot for Canadians, with its famous theme parks, world-class golf, and great weather of course!.

“We are thrilled to offer an ultra-affordable option to travel between Toronto and Orlando. Whether you are traveling for a holiday in sunny Florida or to visit family and friends, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”

“Lynx Air has been a valued partner of Pearson’s since April of 2022, offering service from Pearson to six Canadian destinations,” said Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority.

“We’re delighted to partner with them on this expansion of service, which is their first to the United States, so that our valued passengers have more options, whether they’re looking to explore Canada or visit Orlando.”

“Lynx Air’s decision to make Orlando its first American destination says a lot about the strength of the Canadian market and its ties to Central Florida,” says Kevin Thibault, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “Orlando International (MCO) is pleased to be the first U.S. airport to welcome Lynx Air as it expands its operations internationally.”

“Lynx is launching new direct flight services to Orlando at the perfect time, ahead of popular booking periods, including March Break,” said Casandra Matej, president and CEO for Visit Orlando.

“Low-cost air carriers like Lynx are especially appealing for families and visitors on a budget, who we know are looking to escape the chilly winter temperatures and enjoy the sunshine in the world’s theme park capital.”

Lynx’s US network will continue to expand over the next few weeks, with the planned launch of services out of Calgary to PhoenixLos Angeles, and Las Vegas. In total, Lynx will be operating over 5,000 seats to and from the US, giving Canadians an affordable option to visit some of the most popular sun destinations south of the border.
