On November 16, Lynx Air announced their debut as Canada’s newest ultra-low cost carrier. Calgary mayor, Alberta government officials, executives from the Calgary Airport Authority, local media, and custom models by Pacmin Studios were all in attendance for the special event.
“We are excited to bring competition and choice to the Canadian aviation market at a time when Canadians are yearning for the opportunity to fly again, whether it be to see friends and family or to take a long-awaited holiday,” said Merren McArthur, CEO and president of Lynx Air.
To commemorate the occasion, Pacmin Studios produced custom desktop models in Lynx Air’s colors. Each airline model features a personalized nameplate and special tail number. Reception towards Lynx Air’s striking red and blue livery has been positive.
Pacmin Studios strives to represent each customer’s brand with utmost precision and care, whether it is custom scale models, large scale displays, or CGI. Launch models, like Lynx Air’s 737 MAX 8 desktop models, are an excellent way to generate excitement and visibility as the airline prepares for its first flight in 2022.
News of the launch reflects growing confidence in the return of air travel. Lynx Air expects to grow its Boeing 737 fleet from 3 to 8 aircraft to meet the anticipated demand. They currently have firm orders and lease agreements for 46 aircraft.
Previously known as charter airline Enerjet, Lynx Air expects to begin operating flights in early 2022. For more on this story, see the Calgary Herald’s coverage on the launch of Lynx Air.
