"We are excited to launch our first flight to Las Vegas today, offering an affordable option for Canadians to visit the Entertainment Capital of the World. Las Vegas is a very popular holiday destination for Canadians, and it’s no wonder! From vibrant nightlife and high-end shopping to tours of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, there is something for everyone in Vegas.” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. “Whether you are travelling to experience some world-class entertainment, or to try your luck at the casinos, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”

“In less than one year, Lynx Air has expanded its route offerings out of YYC to include three of the most popular U.S. destinations. These exciting new routes are a testament to the tremendous success Lynx has seen in its YYC operations. We are thrilled with the strength of our collaboration and look forward to continuing to support Lynx’s growth and expansion,” said Carmelle Hunka, Vice President, External Affairs, ESG, Enterprise Risk & General Counsel for The Calgary Airport Authority.

“From a long list of imported entertainment powerhouses to the expansion of the National Hockey League, Canada’s influence on the destination is undeniable,” said H. Fletch Brunelle, vice president of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “That unique relationship makes the launch of this direct route even more exciting, allowing for more visitors from one of our largest sources of international travel to access the destination and take advantage of all the Vegas has to offer.”

Lynx embarked on its U.S. expansion in late January and has already added Toronto – Orlando, Calgary – Phoenix and Calgary – Los Angeles to its network. With the addition of Las Vegas this week, Lynx will be operating over 5,000 seats to and from the U.S., giving Canadians an affordable option to visit some of the most popular sun destinations south of the border.
