“We are thrilled to be adding Montréal to our domestic network today, bringing our ultra-affordable fares to a community which has historically been underserved by low fare airlines,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx Air. “Our vision is to inspire more Canadians to fly, and we are proud to be offering an ultra-affordable option for Quebecers to explore some of Canada’s most popular destinations this summer. Montréal is an iconic destination in its own right and we are excited to make this vibrant city more accessible to Canadians. Whether you are traveling to explore the colourful streetscapes of St. John’s or to experience Montréal’s rich cultural heritage, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
“ADM Aéroports de Montréal is delighted to welcome this service from YUL to Calgary offered by our new airline partner, Lynx Air,” said Stéphane Lapierre, Vice President, Air Operations and Air Service Development, ADM. “This direct route, like the one to St. John’s, represents a great opportunity for YUL to develop its domestic air services. While ADM is constantly seeking to offer its passengers the most diversified range of air services possible, Lynx Air has launched an offering in the under-exploited niche of low-cost flights that will undoubtedly appeal to both business and leisure travellers.”
