FREDERICTON, New Brunswick, March 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lynx Air (Lynx) today announced the addition of Fredericton to its network from June 12, 2023, offering affordable links between New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta.
Canada's new ultra-affordable airline will offer 3 services a week between New Brunswick's most central airport, Fredericton International Airport (YFC) and both Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Toronto Pearson International (YYZ). The Fredericton - Calgary service will operate as a "through flight" via Toronto Pearson, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination.
The Fredericton announcement represents a further expansion of the Calgary-based airline's footprint in Eastern Canada and follows the addition of Montreal to Lynx's network just last week. Lynx plans to grow its fleet from 6 to 9 aircraft over the next 3 months in anticipation of a busy summer in Canada.
Tickets go on sale today, and the fares are truly ultra-affordable, starting from $79* one way Toronto to/from Fredericton and $199* one way Fredericton to/from Calgary, including taxes and fees. To celebrate, the airline has launched a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 50 per cent off all base fares on both Fredericton routes. The sale will run from March 13, 2023, ending at 11:59 PM EDT on March 14, 2023, and can be accessed with the promo code: FREDERICTON.

"We are excited to be adding Fredericton to our rapidly expanding network." said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. "We know that there are strong connections between the communities of New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta and we are proud to offer ultra-affordable links to connect them. Our strategy is to fly to destinations where airfares are high, and low cost options are limited, and Fredericton and New Brunswick are a perfect example of this. By offering ultra-affordable fares, we aim to inspire more Canadians to travel to see their favourite people and places."
"Our region has close ties to Alberta, Calgary and beyond, and this new flight is one our travellers have been asking for," says Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) President and CEO Johanne Gallant. "We're delighted to welcome Lynx to the brand new terminal at YFC."
"This is another great announcement for Fredericton travellers and those visiting from further West. This new capacity benefits us and opens up new tourism markets for the Fredericton Capital Region," says David Seabrook, Director of Tourism for the Fredericton Capital Region.
"This newest route connecting Calgary to Fredericton provides Albertans greater access to Canada's East Coast and gives travellers the opportunity to explore all it has to offer at an affordable price," says Chris Miles, Vice President, Operations & Infrastructure for The Calgary Airport Authority. "We're thrilled to work with Lynx to enable more connections and more ways to travel to the destinations Canadians want to explore."
