DALLAS — In a significant development for Canadian aviation, Lynx Air (Y9), the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) based in Calgary, has secured ten licenses from the Canadian Transportation Agency to operate scheduled international services, including flights to European destinations.
It is a move that marks a significant step forward in Y9’s ambitious plans for international expansion. The budget airline, which operates a fleet of nine Boeing 737-8 aircraft, has been granted licenses to serve a diverse range of destinations across Europe, the Caribbean, and the Americas.
After accepting all of Y9’s applications, the Canadian Transportation Agency granted the licenses for the following regions and countries:
Member States of the European Union
Great Britain and Northern Ireland
The Dominican Republic
This approval to expand into international markets represents a remarkable achievement for the airline, which has primarily focused on serving domestic Canadian routes and a limited number of destinations in the United States until now.
The Canadian Transportation Agency emphasized that the issuance of these licenses was contingent upon Y9 meeting all applicable conditions of the Canada Transportation Act. The agency also confirmed that it was satisfied with the airline’s compliance with the relevant conditions of air transport agreements between Canada and the United States.
