Low cost airline Zoom is launching a Toronto service starting May 1, breaking Air Canada’s monopoly.
The airline is also dropping its JFK service in the summer and flying to Fort Lauderdale, Florida instead. That route starts on May 22.
Making the announcement yesterday, Premier and Tourism Minster Ewart Brown, said healthy competition means lower prices. “We expect the same to be true now for people flying on the Toronto route. This is good news for a great number of people,” he said.
