3 September 2009
Zoom Airlines has expanded its European service with the announcement that it has introduced scheduled transatlantic services to Rome, Italy. The new Rome service will be offered from Toronto and Montreal commencing in May 2008. With the addition of Rome, Zoom Airlines now services seven European gateways non-stop from Toronto and three from Montreal.
Zoom Airlines will operate twice weekly flights from Toronto to Rome’s Fiumicino Airport starting May 3rd. Weekly service from Montreal begins on May 6th. Prices for Zoom Airlines’ full service, scheduled flights to Rome, which include meals and in-flight entertainment, will start from $349 one way.
“We are extremely excited to add Rome to our route network, as we continue to offer consumers an affordable way to see more of Europe” said Kris Dolinki, Chief Executive Officer, Zoom Airlines. “Our flexible ticketing allows our customers to fly into one great European destination and home from another without additional fees or charges.”
He added,” Our customer research indicates a strong interest in Italy. The addition of Rome is another step in establishing Zoom as a value focused carrier for long haul destinations.”
Zoom Airlines’ flexible booking system also enables passengers to buy affordable one way tickets and travel without any restrictions such as staying over a Saturday night. Value-for-money Premium Economy service can be booked for an additional $150 each way offering additional legroom and luggage, reduced check-in time and in-flight meal and drinks benefits.
