Canadian ultra low-cost carrier Lynx Air received a special aircraft delivery on May 2, 2023. The carrier’s newest addition to the fleet, its seventh Boeing B737 aircraft, also sports a new livery featuring the airline’s signature paw prints.
The latest aircraft addition, which arrived from the Boeing factory, is also Lynx Air’s first of 11 new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft under lease from BOC Aviation Limited.
The airline detailed how the aircraft was painted and assembled on Twitter.
“We are thrilled to be receiving our seventh Boeing 737 aircraft, which will enable us to expand our North American network and offer our ultra-affordable fares and great flying experience to more Canadians,” Merren McArthur, CEO and president of Lynx Air said in a statement emailed to AeroTime.
“These ultra-efficient and reliable aircraft reduce Lynx’s carbon footprint, making us one of Canada’s most sustainable airlines. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with BOCA and Boeing, as we continue to transform the aviation market in Canada,” Merren added.
The Canadian lynx is a medium-sized North American lynx that ranges across Alaska, Canada, and northern areas of the contiguous United States. It is characterized by its long, dense fur, triangular ears with black tufts at the tips, and broad, snowshoe-like paws.
