About Lynx Air

Lynx Air was an airline based in the Canadian city of Calgary, Alberta. Although it was a rebrand of, Enerjet. Enerjet began operations in 2008 as it saw a gap in the market which was being underserved by both Air Canada and Westjet. The airline originally operated as a charter airline aiding with the transportation of oil workers across Alberta as well as a charter for tour and leisure operators. It was announced in November 2021 that the airline was to rebrand the carrier and shift its business model. The airline decided to adopt the Lynx Air branding and become an ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) aimed at travellers who don't frequently fly and who tend to use US airlines. Lynx Air retired the aircraft previously operated by Enerjet and took over delivery of the Boeing 737 Max aircraft. The airline began operating services in the first half of 2022 in a range of Canadian cities and bases its operations at Calgary International Airport.
