A new ultra-low cost carrier comes to Montreal Trudeau

Links Air, Alberta’s low-cost carrier, announced Wednesday that it will serve Montreal with two routes beginning in June.

The flights, which will be launched starting June 5, will make it possible to travel to Calgary or Saint John from Montreal Trudeau Airport.

“We are thrilled to add the vibrant city of Montreal to Lynx Air’s network as summer approaches. Although Montreal is a very popular destination, it is currently experiencing a lack of low-cost carrier services, and Lynx wants to make this right,” said Merrin McArthur, Lynx Air CEO.

A traveler who wants to take a round trip to Calgary or Montreal with Lynx Air, without baggage, can expect to pay approximately $115, including taxes, at the regular rate. However, the bill quickly goes up with the addition of suitcases or even cabin baggage.

By comparison, a similar flight between Montreal and Calgary in June can cost between $450 and $500, with additional checked baggage costs we find by simulating a flight reservation on the carrier’s website.

WestJet, for its part, offers a round trip from Montreal to Calgary for about $300, with no checked baggage.

Lynx Air, formerly Enerjet, aims to develop ultra-low-cost flights in Canada and to some US destinations. The company operates a small fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft.
