On 09MAR, Lynx Air announced the addition of two YYT routes to its network, creating links from St. John's to each of Calgary and Edmonton. These services are in addition to the previously announced flight service between YYT and YYZ.
Lynx will launch its inaugural flight to YYT from YYZ on 28JUN. Initially, the airline planned to fly the route twice weekly then increase to daily service a month later in JUL. Now, Lynx says that due to strong demand for flights to YYT, it will increase service further.
As of 14JUL, Lynx will offer a daily flight to YYZ and will start five "through-flights" a week from YEG to YYT. On 16JUL, the carrier will start operating two "through-flights" a week from YYC to YYT. At that point, Lynx will be flying a total of 14 flights a week in and out of St. John's, more than 2,646 seats weekly. The YEG and YYC "through-flights" will operate via YYZ, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.
The new YYT flights are now on sale and Lynx is offering a limited time seat sale of up to 50 per cent off base fares on all St. John's routes. The sale will run for 48-hours, ending on 11MAY 2022 at 11:59am NDT.
"We are excited to be expanding our services to St John's in response to strong demand from travelers," said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air. "St. John's is clearly a very popular destination, whether it be to explore the stunning coastlines of Newfoundland and Labrador or to take in the colourful iconic streetscapes of historic St. John's."
Merren noted that flights to and from YYT start at CAD $119 one way, including taxes, with the new promotion.
