(Lynx Air)

One of Canada’s most affordable airlines has announced it’s expanding its network, and Victoria is on their list of new destinations.

Lynx Air has added Victoria as the sixth stop in their rotation, in addition to their other routes out of Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Kelowna.

In a press release, Lynx said that beginning Thursday, May 12th, passengers will be able to travel between Victoria and Calgary, with one-way trips starting at only $39.

Travellers will also be able to snag the deal of $49 one-way in the opposite direction, totalling less than $100 for a round-trip.

According to the airline, the trips will be available twice per week once they kick off in May, and could move up to three weekly trips come June.

“As the economy begins to reopen, we are pleased to see Lynx introduce service between Calgary and Victoria commencing in May,” says said Geoff Dickson, President and CEO, Victoria Airport Authority.

“A low-cost airline like Lynx will offer affordable travel options for our community and provide opportunities for travellers to explore the beauty and culture of Victoria.”

Lynx Air dubs themselves Canada’s “ultra-affordable” airline, on a mission to make air travel accessible to all, with low fares and a fleet of brand-new Boeing 737 aircrafts.

Even though the flights out of Victoria don’t take off until mid-May, travellers can still book their trip now.
