Halifax to Calgary or Edmonton - $215 to $325 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Banff, Alberta

Lynx Air recently announced they are expanding their route network to offer flights from Halifax to Calgary and Edmonton.

The new flights start in mid-July, but their lowest prices are in September where you can find flights for $215 to $325 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

$215 roundtrip is the base price and includes *only* a personal item.

$325 CAD roundtrip is the more realistic price with a piece of carry-on or a checked bag included.

July and August dates can be found for around $50 more roundtrip.

The flights between Halifax and Calgary/Edmonton have 1 stop each way in Hamilton for 45 minutes. It's a technical stop though, meaning you don't need to change planes, so there's no concern about the short stopover length.

Vice-versa flights (Calgary or Edmonton to Halifax) are also available for a similar roundtrip price.

For comparison, WestJet and Air Canada's flights to Calgary between July and September are currently priced at $700-$800 roundtrip with a piece of carry-on.

Who is Lynx Air?

Lynx Air is a low cost airline based out of Calgary, Alberta.

As Lynx Air, they are relatively new, with their first flights taking off last month. However, Lynx Air is really Enerjet rebranded. Enerjet was a charter airline that operated for 10 years mainly transporting oil sands worker to job sites around Western Canada.

In late 2021 they rebranded from Enerjet to Lynx Air, with the intent to become a low cost carrier serving major cities across Canada.

They also brought in Merren McArthur as their CEO. She was previously the CEO of Tigerair Australia and Virgin Australia Regional Airlines.

Lynx Air has firm orders and lease agreements in place for 46 aircraft over the next seven years.

This is the cheapest flights to Calgary have been in years - $347 roundtrip after tax!

Update @ 12 AM: The promo code (which expired at midnight) made this deal a bit better, but the real key here was the large drop on the base fare. Looks like it works out to $383 roundtrip after tax without the promo code, which is still a pretty amazing price for Halifax to Calgary, especially for summer. And as of this writing, still available.
