Is Zoom Airlines Coming Back?

If you’ve missed Zoom Airlines as much as I have, you haven’t missed it at all.   But if you have missed Zoom Airlines and their pretty cheap fares to Europe, you may be in luck:  a Canadian investor is working with a bankruptcy trustee to get the carrier back up and flying by this summer.  Initial routes would likely include flights from Toronto & Montreal to Paris, Rome and London.  With fuel prices down by about 2/3 since zoom went under, this sucker/investor thinks he can make a run of it.  Best of luck.

  1. I used to work for Zoom Airlines, and believe me, it will be sorely missed by many people. I cannot tell you how many compliments we had from our passengers. Ofcourse there were some unsatisfied customers, but the good experiences surely outweighed the bad. I really enjoyed working for Zoom Airlines, and to be honest, the people there are what really made the company. I’ve never worked with a more enthusiastic, hard-working group! I heard a little rumour (mind you its just a rumour) that the bankrupcy had nothing to do with oil prices, and more to do with the looming economic downturn. Hugh Boyle probably anticipated this and decided to quit while he was ahead. Makes sense to me, since we were making good profits every year, and a good majority of that was from cargo and chartered flights. I do think bringing Zoom back is a bit of a gamble, but its worth a try!!!

  2. I also worked for zoom and i really hope they do bring it back.. I would for sure apply again if they do hire for Vancouver!! I miss it tones and it was a great airline!! Yes we did have some hard time but look around you everyone is having a hard time… I was stuck in glasgow for 3 days and lost lots of money but I would go back in a heart beat!!! Yes it would be hard at first probably lots of complaints because of the past! But hey there’s other airlines out there so book with them. Im sure Air Canada would be in the same boat as us except the government keeps bailing them out. Anyways Hope to see zoom in the summer…

    Coffee, tea, how about me!!!

    cheesey

  3. I ALSO WORKED AT ZOOM AND ENJOYED THE AWESOME FAMILIES AND IN ANTERESTING INDIVIDUALS I CAME TO MEET. I ONLY HAVE TO SAY COMPITITION OF ANY SIZE OR TYPE WILL BENIFIT THE CANADIAN MARKET.

  4. What an excellent airline with superb service and quite affordable prices. I travelled a few times with Zoom from Toronto to Port of Spain Trinidad and had no complaints. Very good value. I hope that Zoom’s service can be resumed. All the bestl

  5. Have flown several airlines. Zoom was the best. The former employees are telling it like it was. Great way to fly. Would fly Zoom again in a heart beat.
