Lynx Air has added Fredericton to its network from June 12, 2023, offering new links between New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta.
The ultra-affordable airline will offer three services a week between New Brunswick’s most central airport, Fredericton International Airport (YFC) and both Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Toronto Pearson International (YYZ).
The Fredericton - Calgary service will operate as a “through flight” via Toronto Pearson, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.
The Fredericton announcement represents a further expansion of the Calgary-based airline’s footprint in Eastern Canada and follows the addition of Montreal to Lynx’s network just last week.
Lynx plans to grow its fleet from six to nine aircraft over the next three months in anticipation of a busy summer in Canada.
“We are excited to be adding Fredericton to our rapidly expanding network.” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. “We know that there are strong connections between the communities of New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta and we are proud to offer ultra-affordable links to connect them. Our strategy is to fly to destinations where airfares are high, and low cost options are limited, and Fredericton and New Brunswick are a perfect example of this. By offering ultra-affordable fares, we aim to inspire more Canadians to travel to see their favourite people and places.”
Tickets go on sale today (Mach 13), and the fares started from $79 one way Toronto to/from Fredericton and $199 one way Fredericton to/from Calgary, including taxes and fees.
The airline has also launched a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 50 per cent off all base fares on both Fredericton routes.
The sale will run from March 13, 2023, ending at 11:59 PM EDT on March 14, 2023, and can be accessed with the promo code: FREDERICTON.
