Zoom Airlines to introduce low-cost trans-Atlantic flights

The U.K. unit of Canada's Zoom Airlines Inc., said Thursday it will start law-cost flights between London’s Gatwick airport and New York beginning June 21.

The airline said one-way fares will start from 129 pounds (US$254.9 million; EUR189.9 million) including taxes and charges. It will offer economy and premium economy services with designated seating and a meal service.

Flights will leave London Gatwick every lunchtime, arriving in New York in the early afternoon, the company said. Return flights will leave New York in the early evening, landing at London Gatwick at around 6 a.m. the following morning.

Zoom said it will initially operate five flights per week direct from London Gatwick to New York and two off-peak services via Bermuda.
