The inaugural Lynx Air flight into Hamilton airport from Halifax took place yesterday afternoon.

This adds to the commercial destinations that depart from Hamilton to include Halifax, Edmonton, and Calgary.

Smaller airlines are finding that Hamilton International is cheaper to work out of and quite easy to get to for many people.

As of July 30, 2022, Lynx will service Calgary to Halifax five times per week and increase flights from the Greater Toronto Area to seven times per week. Starting July 14, Lynx will service Edmonton to Halifax twice per week.

Vijay Bathija, Chief Commercial Officer for the company told the reception that: “We know there are a lot of personal connections between Atlantic Canada, Western Canada and the Greater Toronto region; they want to build on those connections

Lynx define themselves as  a new ultra-affordable airline, on a mission to make air travel accessible to all Canadians, and in keeping with that mission, Lynx is offering fares to Halifax from as low as $59* one-way.

Lynx’s network spans 10 destinations across Canada, including Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto Pearson, Hamilton, Halifax and St. John’s. The airline operates a fleet of brand-new, fuel-efficient Boeing 737 aircraft and plans to grow its fleet to more than 46 aircraft over the next five to seven years.

When they say “ultra  affordable they weren’t kidding.  For that $59 you get a one way ticket that includes a seat and  one piece of luggage.

You pay for everything after that.

Bathija, speaking during the ceremonies said no one ever raved about the food on an airplane, suggesting that  passengers might think about eating at an airport restaurant.

The  better suggesting was to bring your food with you  – instead of  packing a  lunch bucket to take to the construction site – pack a lunch to eat on the place.

When you book your ticket in Lynxair.com you get a list of the choices.  They send you an email 72 hours before the flight reminding you what is offered and you just enter your choices and it will be there when you board.

This is an important event for the Hamilton airport and an improvement in the destinations available for people in the western GTA.

More later on the growth of the airport – it is no longer just a cargo operation.

The close to packed passenger lounges attested to that.
