Lynx Air on January 27 launched its inaugural flight to the United States, departing from Toronto Pearson International Airport and arriving at the new Terminal C at Orlando International Airport. Lynx plans to operate four direct flights per week between Toronto and Orlando, flying a new Boeing 737 aircraft.

“Lynx Air took to the Canadian skies for the very first time just over nine months ago, and we are excited to be already expanding across the border into the USA,” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. “The choice of Orlando as our first U.S. destination was easy. It is a very popular holiday spot for Canadians, with its famous theme parks, world-class golf, and great weather of course.”

Lynx explains its U.S. network will expand over the next few weeks, with the planned launch of services out of Calgary to Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. In total, Lynx plans to operate more than 5,000 seats to and from the U.S.

“Lynx Air has been a valued partner of Pearson’s since April of 2022, offering service from Pearson to six Canadian destinations,” said Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “We’re delighted to partner with them on this expansion of service, which is their first to the United States, so that our valued passengers have more options, whether they’re looking to explore Canada or visit Orlando.”
