Zoom Airlines Bankrupt
This just in: Zoom Airlines has gone belly up.
According to their website:
"Zoom Airlines sincerely regrets to advise its customers that it has suspended operations with effect from 18:00 UTC on Thursday 28 August.
All flights scheduled to depart from have been cancelled and Zoom's aircraft have been grounded.
Both Zoom Airlines Inc and Zoom Airlines Ltd, the Canadian and UK airlines, will be filing for insolvency proceedings in their home countries today.
For customers who have future travel plans involving a Zoom flight for which reservations and payment have been made, you should refer to your credit or debit card company to apply for a refund. We have set out details of other airlines who operate the same or similar routes to those flown with Zoom in the hope that this may assist you in making alternative travel plans to replace the flights that you had booked with Zoom."
Many of our teachers have already purchased tickets with Zoom, and some are even at the airport right now trying to get on flights to London with other airlines. Here are some websites to try if you are in this same situation:
