On July 30, 2022, the Edmonton-Toronto service will increase to seven flights per week and Lynx will add Halifax Stanfield International Airport to its Edmonton network with two services a week. At that point Lynx will be flying 14 flights per week in and out of Edmonton, which equates to 2,646 seats per week.

The St. John’s and Halifax services will operate as through-flights via Toronto Pearson, providing a seamless service with a single boarding pass. Through-flights allow passengers to check bags through to their final destination and helps people avoid deplaning in Toronto. 

To celebrate Lynx’s inaugural flight from Edmonton, the airline has launched a limited-time seat sale, offering up to 50 per cent off all base fares to and from Edmonton. The sale will start on July 14, 2022, and end at 11:59 p.m. MST on July 16, 2022. For complete sale details and to book an ultra-affordable fare, please visit FlyLynx.com.
