The airline's first turboprop plane was promised in May but is now expected in June or July. As a result, its first flights will start around September instead of in July.
Lynx now employs about 60. By the end of the year, it plans to employ about 400 and operate about 70 daily flights.
[Tom] Nunn also has plans for the company to do contract flying and other work for other carriers, expanding parent company Frontier Airlines Holdings' profile to a broader national operation. That would make Lynx a regional carrier for other airlines, much like SkyWest is for United Airlines' United Express operation.
Lynx has approvals to do contract work and is doing ground work for Horizon Air in Tulsa.
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 1): Are F9 still pulling QX capacity? If so, who will make up the shortfalls?
They are slowly withdrawing the capacity, as RC is replacing them route by route. If you look at the route map www.republicairlines.com , you will see that they are growing. At last count, I think they only had 2 E170's flying, but that could have changed since. Those 170's look mighty sexy in F9 colors. I can't wait to see the Q400's!
Quoting NZblue (Thread starter): The airline's first turboprop plane was promised in May but is now expected in June or July. As a result, its first flights will start around September instead of in July.
So in other words, are they in possession of an aircraft yet? Won't they be doing a few test runs and certifications? I would suspect they either have one, or should be getting a Q400 any day now.
