Lynx Air launched its first international flight out of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Orlando International Airport (MCO) on Saturday (Nov. 18), connecting Canada’s west coast with the sunshine of Florida.
The launch is part of Lynx’s continued U.S. winter expansion. The airline now offers service to Orlando from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal.
By December, Lynx will be flying nearly 10,000 seats in and out of Florida per week, and all of these destinations are now on sale, the airline says.
By December 2023, the carrier will also fly more than 12,000 seats per week across its North American network to and from Vancouver, representing an 88 per cent growth from the previous year.
“We are committed to bringing more ultra-affordable air travel to the west coast, and Vancouver is an important hub for our network,” said Jim Sullivan, CEO of Lynx Air. “We are proud to help make travel from Vancouver to Orlando even easier, providing more choice in this under-served market.” He continues, “Whether you are travelling to enjoy the sunshine, go to the theme parks, golf, or escape to the beach, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
Casandra Matej, president and CEO of Visit Orlando, said the new direct service from Vancouver, which joins recent direct routes from Toronto and Calgary, praised the new service.
“Low-cost air carriers like Lynx are especially appealing for visitors on a budget, who we know are looking to escape the chilly winter temperatures and enjoy the sunshine in the theme park capital of the world,” Matej stated.
Fares between Vancouver and Orlando start at $179 (available for a limited time), one way, including taxes and fees.
