Lynx Air launched its inaugural flight to the United States on Friday (Jan. 27), departing from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and arriving at the new Terminal C at Orlando International Airport (MCO). 

Canada’s new "ultra-affordable airline" will operate four direct flights per week between Toronto and Orlando, flying brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft.

To celebrate Lynx’s inaugural Orlando service, the airline is offering a chance to win a vacation package for four, including flights, accommodation, and passes to Orlando theme parks. 

U.S. expansion

Lynx is also launching a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 50 per cent off base fares for flights from Toronto to Orlando, using the promo code: FLYUSA

Fares start from as low as $109 inclusive of taxes and fees. The sale starts on January 27 and ends at 11:59 PM EST January 30, 2023. 

"Lynx Air took to the Canadian skies for the very first time just over nine months ago, and we are excited to be already expanding across the border into the USA. The choice of Orlando as our first US destination was easy – it is a very popular holiday spot for Canadians, with its famous theme parks, world-class golf, and great weather of course!” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx. 

McArthur added: “We are thrilled to offer an ultra-affordable option to travel between Toronto and Orlando. Whether you are traveling for a holiday in sunny Florida or to visit family and friends, Lynx will ensure a great flying experience at an ultra-affordable price.”

Kevin Thibault, chief executive officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, said Lynx Air’s decision to make Orlando its first American destination says a lot about the strength of the Canadian market and its ties to Central Florida. 

He shared: “Orlando International (MCO) is pleased to be the first U.S. airport to welcome Lynx Air as it expands its operations internationally."

Casandra Matej, president and CEO for Visit Orlando also shared that Lynx is launching new direct flight services to Orlando at the perfect time, ahead of popular booking periods, including March Break. 

Matej shared that “low-cost air carriers like Lynx are especially appealing for families and visitors on a budget, who we know are looking to escape the chilly winter temperatures and enjoy the sunshine in the world’s theme park capital.”
