Lynx Air Welcomes Pets Aboard Flights

Lynx announces cats and small dogs can join travellers in-cabin for a small fee.

CALGARY, AB, June 23, 2022 /CNW/ – Lynx Air (Lynx) is excited to welcome small dogs and cats in-cabin! For a one-way fee of $59, travellers will be able to bring their pets in addition to a personal item.

Passengers are encouraged to book their cats and small dogs at the time of booking, as the number of pets permitted on flights is limited. This assures that all passengers and pets feel comfortable at every point in their Lynx journey. Lynx also recommends passengers arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to the scheduled departure time to allow time for check-in and kennel approval.

“We know that for many Canadians, pets are a beloved member of the family and we don’t want them to miss out on the family holiday,” said Lynx CEO, Merren McArthur. “This new service is just one of the ways Lynx is making air travel accessible to all Canadians, including some of our furry friends.”

Lynx requires that all pet kennels are a maximum of 41cm length x 21.5cm height x 25cm width. The container must be soft-sided, leak-proof, well-vented, and in good condition. The airline allows one pet per person, and the pet must stay inside the kennel at all times. Lynx does not allow large animals unless they are approved service dogs. A full list of rules and regulations regarding flying with pets is available at FlyLynx.com/pet-in-cabin.

Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline is on a mission to make air travel accessible to all Canadians and, in keeping with that mission, Lynx is offering fares from as low as $49* one way. Lynx’s network spans 10 destinations coast to coast across Canada, including Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto Pearson, Hamilton, Halifax, and St. John’s.
