New low-cost airline Zooms into JFK

21 June 2007

Low-cost Canadian carrier Zoom Airlines makes its first foray into the U.S. market Thursday when it launches a daily flight from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to London’s Gatwick Airport.

Zoom is offering one-way fares of $199 on its 266-seat Boeing 767-300’s. Slightly larger “premium economy” seats can be had for an additional $179 each way.

It’s a very low price for the summer,” said Bob Mann, an airline consultant with R.W. Mann & Co. in Port Washington, N.Y.

Zoom does not require passengers to buy a round-trip ticket or stay over on a Saturday night, both typical requirements for a cheaper flight on most airlines. Zoom, based in Ottawa, Canada, and at Gatwick, already operates 10 to 12 daily flights between Canada and the U.K.
