FREDERICTON, New Brunswick, June 12, 2023 – Business – Lynx Air (Lynx) is launching its inaugural flights from Fredericton International airport (YFC) to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Calgary International Airport (YYC) today.

Canada’s leading ultra-affordable airline will operate three services a week from Fredericton to Toronto and Calgary. The Fredericton – Calgary flights will operate as “through flights” with a short stop in Toronto, offering a seamless journey, with a single boarding pass, bags checked through to the final destination, and no need to deplane in Toronto.

Today’s Fredericton inaugural comes just one week after Lynx’s inaugural Montreal flights to St. John’s and Calgary, representing a continued expansion of the airline’s footprint throughout Eastern Canada. Lynx launched its first flight just over a year ago and now serves 16 destinations across North America with seven brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft. The airline plans to grow its fleet to 10 aircraft by the end of 2023 and has firm orders in place for an additional 36 aircraft.

Lynx’s fares are truly ultra-affordable, starting from $79* one way between Fredericton and Toronto and $199* one way between Fredericton and Calgary, including taxes and fees. To celebrate today’s inaugural flight, Lynx has launched a limited time seat sale offering up to 35 per cent off all Fredericton fares. The sale starts on June 12 and ends at 11:59 PM EST on June 13, 2023, and can be accessed with the promo code YFC. For complete sale details, and to book an ultra-affordable fare, visit

“Demand for travel is stronger than ever, and we’re delighted to bring a new airline and a new destination to the Fredericton International Airport. This flight opens up new tourism opportunities, enables families to reconnect, and makes it easier than ever for business travellers to connect to new markets.
