TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lynx Air (Lynx) will launch its first flight between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) 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 new route launch marks the continued US expansion of Lynx for the fall and into the winter sun destination season. The airline currently operates flights between Toronto – Orlando and Toronto – Los Angeles, and will add Fort Myers and Tampa Bay to its Toronto network in the coming months. All these destinations are now on sale.
By December 2023, Lynx will fly more than 22,000 seats per week across its North American network to and from Toronto, representing a 201 per cent growth from the previous year. This summer, Lynx established a pilot and cabin crew base in Toronto to support this growth, creating 101 new jobs in the region.
“Toronto is our fastest growing hub as it has historically been underserved by low-cost carriers, so airfares have been too high for too long,” said Jim Sullivan, CEO of Lynx Air. “Lynx Air is changing that. We are proud to be the only low-cost carrier offering service between Toronto and Phoenix. Whether you are travelling to enjoy the sunshine, golf, take in the nightlife, or catch a sporting event, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
Says Janik Reigate, Director, Strategic Customer Relationships, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, “We are pleased to see Lynx continue to grow its route offering from Toronto Pearson. This new service to Phoenix will provide increased choice for passengers looking to escape Canada’s winter weather.”
Adds Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, “Today, Phoenix is celebrating another milestone in our city’s connectivity and growth. The new Lynx route between Phoenix and Toronto is another example of how we’re working to expand opportunities for our residents and visitors alike. These flights will not only bring our two great cities closer together, but will also open the door to new economic, cultural, and personal ties. We look forward to welcoming travelers from Toronto to the sunshine and hospitality of the Phoenix area, and we’re excited to see the positive impact this route will have on our community.”
Fares between Phoenix and Toronto start at $149*, 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 Phoenix and Toronto. The sale starts on October 12 and ends at 11:59 PM EDT on October 13, 2023, and can be accessed with the promo code “FLYUSA”.
