Lynx Air, based in Calgary, Alberta, plans to launch ticket sales on Jan. 19 for flights on what would be Canada’s new low-cost airline. In line with the launch of its booking website, Lynx is running a promotional campaign to provide two Canadians with a chance to win free flights for a year.
These grand prize winners will receive one round-trip flight per month to any Lynx destination for 12 months and five additional winners will each receive one round-trip flight anywhere on Lynx’s network.
“We are excited to be giving away free flights for a year to two lucky Canadians in keeping with Lynx’s mission to make air travel more accessible to all,” said Merren McArthur, CEO, Lynx Air. “The contest itself will be a bit of fun with some trivia questions to answer as we count down to the first day of ticket sales on Wednesday, January 19.”
Lynx introduced itself to the market on Nov. 16, 2021, with the goal of beginning flights in 2022, running new Boeing 737 aircraft.
Lynx, formerly known as charter airline Enerjet, was founded by an investor group headed by Tim Morgan, a former senior executive at WestJet Airlines Ltd. McArthur is the former CEO of Tigerair Australia, Virgin Australia Regional Airlines and Virgin Australia Cargo.
