Lynx Air announced Jan. 17 that it will begin air service from Regina to Toronto and Vancouver this summer.

This is the first expansion into Saskatchewan for Lynx, which bills itself as “Canada’s newest ultra-affordable airline.” Lynx will offer service to Toronto and Vancouver on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with tickets on sale now.

“We are excited to be adding Regina to the Lynx Air network in the lead up to summer. The province of Saskatchewan has seen significant reductions in capacity lately and prices are too high, and we aim to change that,” said Vijay Bathija, CCO of Lynx. “We are pleased to offer an ultra-affordable option to connect Regina and Saskatchewan to BC and Ontario. Whether you are travelling to explore this gateway to the Prairies or to visit your loved ones in the region, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”

Service starts June 20.

“We’ve been hearing from communities across all of southern Saskatchewan that they want an ultra-low-cost carrier here at YQR,” said Justin Reves, director of revenue development, public relations, and customer experience for the Regina Airport Authority. “We’re excited it’s the amazing team at Lynx is answering the call. We know they are going to deliver reliable, ultra-affordable service between YQR and two of our busiest destinations of Toronto and Vancouver.”
