Budget Airline to Launch London - New York Flights

Zoom, a Canadian/British low fare airline, has received preliminary approval to launch flights between London Gatwick and New York's JFK airport beginning this June.  For now, though, the airline can only sell seats in the UK, but it'll just be a matter of time before they can sell seats from the US.  While this route is already chock full of low fares during the non-summer months, I expect Zoom to keep fares in the $400-$500 round trip (plus tax) range during the summer, a savings of about $200-$300 off historical fares.  I'll let you know when they can sell tickets here.

Hi

I am planning a short stay in New York in December 07 as a surprise for my wife. I am thinking of making a booking now but i am also wondering if i should wait awhile to see if prices come down. I am based in Teesside - are all flights located from London?? Advice on both of these issues would be hugely appreciated.

Kind Regards

Mark Bradley
