Below story is from a press release.

HALIFAX: At a press event at Bianca Aperitivo Bar in Halifax, Lynx Air (Lynx) announced the addition of two Halifax routes to its network, creating links from Halifax to each of Calgary and Edmonton.

The airline said these services are in addition to the previously announced services between Halifax and each of Hamilton and Toronto, which will commence on June 29, 2022 and June 30, 2022, respectively.

As of July 14, 2022, Lynx will commence five through-flights a week each way from Calgary to Halifax. On July 30, 2022, the airline will commence two through-flights a week each way from Edmonton to Halifax.

At that point, Lynx will be flying a total of 14 flights a week in and out of Halifax, which is more than 2,600 seats weekly.  The Edmonton and Calgary “through-flights” will operate via Toronto or Hamilton, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass and the ability to check bags through to the final destination. 

Fares to and from Halifax start from as low as $59.00* one way, including taxes.

The May 10 announcement comes just one day after Lynx announced an expansion of services to St John’s.  The airline reported that the expansion of its Halifax and St. John’s route network is in response to strong demand for flights to Atlantic Canada.
