“Tampa International Airport is proud to offer more travel options from Toronto and Montreal with our new airline partner Lynx Air, the first Canadian carrier to launch new service to TPA since the pandemic,” TPA CEO Joe Lopano said. “Our community is closely linked with our Canadian neighbors, who are the largest source of international visitation, homeownership and foreign direct investment in Tampa Bay. We look forward to better serving our travelers to and from Canada and opening doors to all the wonderful things our growing region has to offer.”

These are the first routes to Tampa for the Calgary-based airline, which launched in April 2022. Lynx Air now serves 16 destinations with seven new Boeing 737 aircraft. The airline plans to grow its fleet to 10 aircraft by the end of 2023 and has orders in place for an additional 36 planes.

Lynx Air’s fares to Tampa start as low as $99 with taxes and fees, but to celebrate the new routes to Toronto and Montreal, the airline is currently offering up to 25 percent off tickets to both destinations using the promo code “TAMPA” on LynxAir BookSecure PWA .
