Phoenix Sky Harbor Announces New International Flights

Are you dreaming about an international vacation? Phoenix Sky Harbor airport recently announced plans for several new international routes.

In February, Lynx Air, a Canadian airline providing ultra-low-costs, inaugurated their service at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport with flights to Calgary, Alberta. Now, the carrier has added a Phoenix-Toronto route, which commenced on October 12. The flights will be scheduled for three days for the majority of the weeks; during the months of December, January, and February, they’ll be flying four days per week.

At an event hosted at Sky Harbor to celebrate the launch of the new route, Jim Sullivan, CEO of Lynx Air, expressed his enthusiasm for the connection to Toronto and destinations renowned for their golfing, idyllic weather, and stunning vistas.

On October 30th, Flair Airlines began their seasonal service from Sky Harbor to the cities of Vancouver, British Columbia, Calgary, and Edmonton in Alberta. The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport had previously hosted the Vancouver and Edmonton routes in 2018-19, 2021-22, and 2022-23.

Sky Harbor will provide more frequent flights of Flair than it did at Mesa Gateway as part of its plan to broaden its service to Canadian snowbirds wanting to visit warm-weather destinations.

By the year 2024, American Airlines is expected to commence the inaugural flights between Sky Harbor and the city of Tijuana in Baja California, which is situated approximately 20 miles from San Diego and is renowned for its beaches.

American Airlines will now offer daily nonstop flights to Mexico from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, which is their 12th route to Mexico and 13th international route.

American Airlines are continuously striving to make a connection between Phoenix and Mexico, and the new route is a part of that effort.

At the start of the year, a flight route between Phoenix, Arizona and Monterrey, the largest city in Nuevo Leon, Mexico was re-opened after nearly two decades. This was the first connection between the two cities in that amount of time.
