Flights offer Transatlantic consumers a less costly alternative at $199.00 each way and $99.00 one way from JFK for the first twenty-one days of operation
Zoom Airlines Ltd., the UK sister company to Canada's premiere low cost, full service, transatlantic airline, announced today that it is landing in the United States. The low-fare, full-service airline will operate daily flights from New York's JFK Airport to London Gatwick for $199.00 each way, excluding taxes. And, as a special promotion, flights departing from JFK between June 22 – July 13, 2007, will be offered for $99.00 one way, with taxes included.
Unlike competitors, Zoom's booking service features flexible one-way fares with no restrictions (such as the need to stay a Saturday night in either city). The New York to London flights will offer economy and premium economy services, including full meals and in-flight entertainment at no extra cost. Zoom will operate using Boeing 767-300 aircraft with a seat pitch of 31" in Economy and 36" in Premium Economy, comparable to other major carriers on the route.
