MONTREAL , Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lynx Air (Lynx) will launch its first flight between Montreal Pierre Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) today, continuing the rapid expansion of the airline’s Montreal network.
Lynx is currently Canada’s fastest growing airline, and recently added service between Toronto and Los Angeles. The airline currently flies to 16 destinations across Canada and the United States.
Today’s launch marks the start of Lynx’s U.S. expansion from Montreal in the lead up to fall and winter. Lynx will add Orlando and Tampa Bay to its Montreal network as two additional U.S. destinations in the coming months, and all destinations are now on sale. By December 2023, Lynx will offer more than 8,000 seats per week across its North American network to and from Montreal. Lynx Air added Montreal to its expanding network just six months ago.
“Montreal is one of our fastest growing markets because it has historically been underserved by low-cost carriers. We are happy to serve the demand for more options when it comes to air travel from Montreal residents,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air. “We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier offering services between Montreal and Las Vegas. Whether you are travelling to experience world-class entertainment, hike the surrounding national parks, or to try your luck at the casinos, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
“ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted that Lynx Air has added Las Vegas to its list of destinations. It’s a new gateway to Nevada: concerts, shows and great restaurants are all excellent reasons to head for the entertainment capital of the world! By adding this route to its service offering, Lynx Air continues to develop the market for low-cost flights from Montreal, which will undoubtedly appeal to both business and leisure travelers,” said Stéphane Lapierre, Vice President, Airport Operations and Air Services Development, ADM.
“Las Vegas continues to share a unique and important relationship with the Canadian market, from being one of the top sources of international travel to influencing our entertainment and sports landscape with imported headliners and the expansion of the National Hockey League,” said H. Fletch Brunelle, vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “We look forward to welcoming more travelers to experience that impact firsthand thanks to additional direct access to the destination.”
Fares between Las Vegas and Montreal 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 Las Vegas and Montreal. The sale starts on August 31st and ends at 11:59 PM EDT on September 1st, 2023, and can be accessed with the promo code “FLYUSA”.
