Lynx Air’s inaugural flight to Las Vegas takes off on Friday (Feb. 24) from Calgary International Airport (YYC) to Harry Reid International Airport (LAS).
The ultra-affordable airline will operate four flights per week between Calgary and Las Vegas, flying brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft.
To celebrate, the airline is offering a chance to win a vacation package for two, including flights to Las Vegas, two nights’ accommodation at the SAHARA Las Vegas, and a Speed Vegas driving package.
Lynx is also offering a limited-time seat sale, giving up to 50 per cent off base fares for all flights between Canada and the United States, using the promo code: FLYUSA. The sale starts on Feb. 24 and ends at 11:59 PM PST on Feb. 26, 2023.
Fares start from as low as $109 one way.
"We are excited to launch our first flight to Las Vegas today, offering an affordable option for Canadians to visit the Entertainment Capital of the World. Las Vegas is a very popular holiday destination for Canadians, and it’s no wonder! From vibrant nightlife and high-end shopping to tours of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, there is something for everyone in Vegas.” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. “Whether you are travelling to experience some world-class entertainment, or to try your luck at the casinos, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
In less than one year, Lynx has expanded its route offerings out of YYC to include three of the most popular U.S. destinations, noted Carmelle Hunka, vice-president, external affairs, ESG, enterprise risk and general counsel for The Calgary Airport Authority.
"These exciting new routes are a testament to the tremendous success Lynx has seen in its YYC operations. We are thrilled with the strength of our collaboration and look forward to continuing to support Lynx’s growth and expansion,” said Hunka.
Lynx embarked on its U.S. expansion in late January and has already added Toronto – Orlando, Calgary – Phoenix and Calgary – Los Angeles to its network.
With the addition of Las Vegas this week, Lynx will be operating more than 5,000 seats to and from the U.S., giving Canadians an affordable option to visit some of the most popular sun destinations south of the border.
