The low-cost Canadian carrier Lynx Air is adding more U.S. service, with new flights from Toronto (YYZ) to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Let’s take a look at these new routes!

Low-Cost Lynx Air Expands in the U.S.

Lynx service between Toronto and Boston will begin on March 28, 2024, while San Francisco service starts on May 3, 2024.

Toronto and Boston service will initially be 4x weekly before increasing to 6x weekly in mid-April. Toronto-San Francisco service will also start at 4x weekly and will increase to daily service in June. These routes are both operated by competing carriers Porter Airlines and Air Canada with multiple frequencies per day.

“We are proud to offer an ultra-affordable link to connect the Toronto area market to both the US east and west coast,” said Vijay Bathija, Lynx’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Our strategy is to fly to destinations where airfares are historically high, and low-cost options are limited.”

If you aren’t familiar with Lynx Air, it’s a Canadian start-up airline that commenced operations in January 2023. It’s not an entirely new airline — it’s a rebranding of the Albertan charter airline Enerjet — and operates a fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft.

Currently, the airline serves the following U.S. airports: Orlando (MCO), Los Angeles (LAX), Las Vegas (LAS), Phoenix (PHX), Fort Myers (RSW), and Tampa Bay (TPA). Lynx Air also serves a handful of Canadian airports.

Hot Tip:

Lynx is a low-cost carrier, which means the airline charges extra for services such as seat selection and baggage. Take a look at Lynx’s optional fees before your flight so you aren’t caught off-guard!

How to Book

Fares are now on sale and are bookable through FlyLynx.com.

Once you’ve settled on travel dates and routes, make sure to book your ticket with a credit card that rewards for flights or general travel purchases. Some of our favorites at Upgraded Points are:
