Zoom launches low cost service to Canada

Zoom Airlines are launching their inaugural flight from Cardiff to Vancouver via Belfast, launching a low-cost full scheduled service to the West Coast that will revolutionise transatlantic travel for the whole of Wales and Ireland.

The new Vancouver summer service departs weekly on a Saturday, offering the lowest scheduled airfares across the Atlantic with prices starting from £129 one-way plus tax.

Zoom is the only airline offering flights to Canada from both Cardiff and Belfast International Airports all-year-round and the only airline to be offering a choice of Canadian destinations throughout the summer months.

Launching the service, Margaret Matheson, UK Director of Zoom Airlines, said: “Vancouver is a vibrant city and has been a very popular destination serviced by Zoom since we started operating flights from the UK to Canada back in 2004. I am delighted to be expanding our service offering from Cardiff and Belfast, with our low-cost high quality Canada flights proving to be a huge success in regional markets.”

Premium seats are available on all Zoom flights and can be booked from an additional £99 each way on the Vancouver service, offering additional legroom, superior in-flight meals and complimentary drinks for the duration of your flight.


Zoom operates scheduled flights from Cardiff, Belfast, Gatwick, Glasgow and Manchester, servicing eight Canadian cities; Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
