Lynx Air will launch its first flight from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) today, continuing the rapid expansion of the airline’s Toronto network.
Canada’s leading ultra-affordable airline took to the skies for the first time in 2022, with a vision to inspire more Canadians to fly by offering a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.
Today’s launch marks the start of Lynx’s U.S. expansion in the lead up to the fall and winter.
The airline already operates flights between Toronto and Orlando, and will add Phoenix, Fort Myers and Tampa Bay to its Toronto network in the coming months.
By December 2023, Lynx will fly more than 22,000 seats per week across its North American network to and from Toronto, representing a 260 per cent growth over the previous year.
Lynx recently established a pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto to support this growth, creating 101 new jobs in the region.
Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air said, “Toronto is our fastest growing hub because it has historically been underserved by low-cost carriers and that means airfares have been too high for too long.
“Lynx Air aims to change that. We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier offering services between Toronto and the City of Angels.
“Whether you are travelling to do some star-spotting in Hollywood, or to soak up the sun on one of the iconic Southern California beaches, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
Janik Reigate, Director, Strategic Customer Relationships, Greater Toronto Airports Authority said, “We are pleased to see Lynx add LAX to their roster of destinations served from Toronto Pearson.
“This new service will undoubtedly provide passengers with another greater option to fly to sunny California.”
Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles World Airports said, “We are thrilled to have Lynx Air expand its service at LAX with the addition of the new route between LAX and Toronto, one of our most popular destinations in Canada.”
“This route not only strengthens the ties between our two cities, but it also reinforces our commitment to serving our passengers’ needs and offering an exceptional travel experience.
“We congratulate Lynx Air and look forward to the airline’s continued success.”
Fares between Los Angeles and Toronto start at $129*, one way, including taxes and fees. To celebrate today’s inaugural flight, Lynx has launched a limited time seat sale offering up to 25 per cent off base fares on all flights between Los Angeles and Toronto.
