A new airline launched in Canada on Tuesday promising “ultra-affordable” flights making air travel “accessible to all.”

Lynx Air, founded in 2006 as a charter airline, announced plans to offer scheduled service starting in 2022.

The airline’s CEO, Merren McArthur, said at a news conference in Calgary that the carrier’s model is similar to what is available in Europe and the United States, offering both flexibility and choice.

“We want to be an airline that links Canadians to people and places,” she said, adding that the airline will meet the needs of people “who can’t afford to travel as often as they’d like.”

The airline said it has leased 46 new Boeing 737 aircraft, adding that three are expected to be delivered in early 2022.
