Edmonton — Zoom airlines, together with Sunquest and Canadian Affair is proud to announce new non-stop service to London-Gatwick, U.K, from Edmonton.

This new service is scheduled to commence June 30, 2003 and will operate twice weekly on Boeing 767 aircraft until October 30, 2003. This additional service will stimulate tourism development in the Edmonton market.

Sunquest, based in Toronto, Ont.- one of Canada’s largest and most highly regarded tour companies, is selling the service outbound from Edmonton to London. Canadian Affair, headed in London, U.K., will be targeting inbound passengers from London to Edmonton.

Scott Clements, President and CEO of Edmonton Airports says the new seasonal service will help stimulate a stronger tourism base from the European market. “This additional service will allow Edmonton to become a gateway for tour operators such as Canadian Affair to help encourage a more diverse passenger market between Edmonton and Europe. It’s an invaluable service for leisure travellers and an essential component of air service and tourism development for our region.”

Zoom airlines is headquartered in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, and was incorporated in May 2002 to fill emerging opportunities within the Canadian leisure travel industry.

London Gatwick Airport is a major international hub with an increasing network of scheduled services and business travellers making up over a quarter of Gatwick’s passengers. Sunquest features package holidays and flights to the Caribbean, Mexico, North America, Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Europe. These packages and flights are sold through travel agents across Canada. Sunquest was acquired by MyTravel group of Manchester England, which is now the largest inclusive tour company in the world, with extensive holdings in the U.K. and North America.
