Black Friday flight deals and more with Lynx Air
Lynx Air launched its first flights out of Vancouver in April 2022, with direct service to Calgary. The airline has also provided service from the city to Toronto, Kelowna, and Winnipeg. The airline also launched a direct service connecting the city to Edmonton on Halloween.
At first glance, Lynx offers strikingly low fares on all of its routes. But the low-cost options aren't all-inclusive. The ticket price only includes one personal item for your flight. A personal item is different from carry-on luggage, which generally only fits in the overhead compartment in the cabin. Personal items are generally purses, small backpacks, briefcases, laptop bags, camera bags, and other small pieces.
There isn't a flat fee for baggage, either. Falling in line with other airlines, Lynx offers a sliding scale of costs depending on the length of the flight. The prices are divided into three categories: short flights (under 1000km), medium flights (1000km to 3000km), and long flights (over 3000km). These fees apply to both your carry-on luggage and any additional checked luggage.
Tip: Save some fees on bags by paying for your checked items and carry-on bag in advance online.
