“We are thrilled to welcome Lynx Air to YFC,” says Fredericton International Airport Authority (FIAA) President and CEO Johanne Gallant. “Calgary is a very in-demand destination for our market, and this new flight adds to the options for New Brunswick travellers.”

The new service marks the first direct flight between Fredericton and Calgary, offering an easy, affordable option for anyone travelling for business, vacation or visiting family out west.

“With so many Maritimers now living and working in Alberta, we expect this flight will be very popular right out of the gate,” Ms. Gallant says.

Another exciting first? Fredericton is Lynx Air’s inaugural New Brunswick destination. YFC is honoured to be the first airport in the province to welcome Canada’s newest low-cost airline.

“This is another great announcement for Fredericton travellers and those visiting from further West. It’s new capacity that benefits us and creates new tourism opportunities for the Fredericton Capital Region,” says Director of Tourism David Seabrook.

Lynx is on a mission to make air travel accessible to all, with ultra-affordable fares, no hidden fees and friendly service. And the Calgary-based airline’s fleet of brand-new state-of-the-art Boeing 737 aircraft makes it one of Canada’s greenest and most sustainable airlines.

“We are excited to be adding Fredericton to our rapidly expanding network.” said Merren McArthur, CEO of Lynx.  “We know that there are strong connections between the communities of New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta and we are proud to offer ultra-affordable links to connect them. Our strategy is to fly to destinations where airfares are high, and low cost options are limited, and Fredericton and New Brunswick are a perfect example of this. By offering ultra-affordable fares, we aim to inspire more Canadians to travel to see their favourite people and places.”
