Lynx Air partners with Allianz Global Assistance to offer travel protection

Cambridge ON, Oct 2, 2023 – Lynx Air (Lynx) has announced an exclusive partnership with Allianz Global Assistance (Allianz), a leading travel insurance and assistance provider. 

Lynx customers now have the opportunity to protect their flights with Allianz’s travel insurance products. Travellers can add cancellation, interruption and medical coverage to both new and existing Lynx Air bookings.

“Lynx Air is excited to support our valued clients with trusted travel protection from Allianz Global Assistance,” said Vijay Bathija, Chief Commercial Officer, Lynx Air. “Their travel insurance products not only provide peace of mind, they allow us to provide guests with added confidence as they explore the world.”

Following the pandemic, air travel in Canada has faced several challenges and increased demand. Travellers are thinking about the types of unforeseen circumstances that may impact their trips, and they are taking precautions to protect their travel investments. Being able to offer travel protection allows Lynx Air to provide value to a traveller’s investment with the airline.  

“Allianz is proud to be Lynx Air’s official travel insurance partner,” said Matt Anstett, Director, eComm & Travel Channel. “Lynx Air customers who select our travel insurance products can have an even more enjoyable trip knowing that we are here to protect them from unexpected events, covered by their policy.”  

Travel insurance, provided by Allianz, may help protect Lynx Air passengers from losses not covered by Air Passengers Protection Rights (APPR) – whether it is unexpected travel issues, medical emergencies, or last-minute changes that are covered by Allianz policies. With access to Allianz’s travel insurance products and 24/7 assistance, Lynx Air’s low-cost fares come with additional value and flexibility.
