Zoom Airlines is expanding its winter schedule of flights from the UK to Canada.

This winter, Zoom has experienced an unprecedented level of demand for its low-cost full scheduled flights from all five UK airports to Canada, highlighting Canada’s popularity as a year-round holiday destination. This level of demand has also been encourage by excellent snow conditions experience in Canada’s main ski resorts of British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec.

A new weekly scheduled flight will operate from Belfast to Vancouver departing on a Thursday, allowing Zoom to tap into the localised and thriving snow-sports market in Northern Ireland.

Zoom has also introduced an additional weekly scheduled flight from London Gatwick to Vancouver throughout the winter, increasing the frequency on this route to three per week. Flights from London Gatwick to Montreal double to two per week and an additional flight has also been introduced to Toronto, increasing the frequency on this route from two to three per week.

Toronto has proved to be a popular city-break destination throughout winter. Zoom has increased the frequency on this service from both Glasgow and Manchester to offer a twice weekly service to cater for demand. 


Zoom offers the lowest scheduled airfares across the Atlantic with prices starting from £99 one-way plus taxes to east coast cities and from £129 one-way to west coast destinations.
