Lynx Air’s first flight from Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) took to the skies on June 5, 2023, destined for Calgary International Airport (YYC). June 5 also marks the commencement of Lynx services between St. John’s International Airport (YYT) and Montreal.

Lynx’s Montreal network will continue to expand in coming weeks, with the addition of Vancouver International Airport (YVR) on June 23, 2023. At that point, Lynx will be flying 26 flights in and out of Montreal weekly, which equates to 4,914 seats.

“We are thrilled to be adding Montreal 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. Montreal is an iconic destination in its own right and we are excited to make this vibrant city more accessible to Canadians.”

To celebrate its inaugural Montreal service, Lynx is launching a contest, offering the chance to win a free vacation package for two to Calgary, including flights and accommodation. The contest starts on June 5 and ends on June 9.


Lynx also announced a limited-time seat sale, from June 5 to June 6, offering up to 35 per cent off base fares for flights to and from Montreal, using the promo code MONTREAL. As a result, fares start at $59 inclusive of taxes and fees.

“ADM Aeroports de Montreal is delighted to welcome this service from YUL to Calgary offered by our new airline partner, Lynx Air,” said Stephane 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.”
