“We are excited to launch our first Los Angeles flight just in time for the Family Day weekend.

We are thrilled to be offering an affordable option for Canadians to visit the City of Angels,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. “Whether you are travelling to do some star-spotting in Hollywood, or to soak up the sun on one of the iconic Southern California beaches, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”
“With Los Angeles being one of the most in-demand U.S. destinations, we are incredibly supportive of the increase in travel options between LAX and YYC,” says Bob Sartor, President and CEO at The Calgary Airport Authority. “Lynx’s expansion into the U.S. at their low cost model gives more individuals the ability to travel to our region and experience everything we have to offer.”
“Congratulations to Lynx for reaching this landmark moment in their ongoing expansion into the U.S. market. This increased access will create more opportunities for high-value travellers to explore Alberta’s many iconic destinations and one-of-a-kind experiences,” said David Goldstein, CEO of Travel Alberta.
“We are thrilled to have Lynx Air offer this affordable new direct service from YYC to LAX, making Los Angeles an accessible destination for all travelers,” shared Kathy Smits, Senior Vice President of Global Tourism Development at Los Angeles Tourism. “The Canada market has always been incredibly important to LA, and we can’t wait to welcome visitors from Calgary to the City of Angels.”
Lynx embarked on its U.S. expansion in late January and has already added Toronto – Orlando and Calgary – Phoenix to its network since.
