Zooom Airlines resumes operations with fight from Delhi to Ayodhya

In a significant comeback, Zooom Airlines, formerly known as Zoom Air, marked its return to the Indian skies with the launch of its inaugural passenger flight from Delhi to Ayodhya. The airline, headquartered in Gurugram, resumed operations after receiving a renewed air operator certificate from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on September 15.

The airline, originally established as Zexus Air in April 2013, faced a series of challenges, including a temporary shutdown in July 2018 due to safety concerns raised by the DGCA. Despite restarting services in October 2019, Zooom Airlines again faced a suspension in March 2020, attributed to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the aviation industry.

Now, under a new name and with a fresh perspective, Zooom Airlines aims to create a renewed brand recall, offering an improved experience for passengers. The first flight on the Delhi-Ayodhya route utilized Bombardier CRJ 200ER aircraft.

Atul Gambhir, CEO of Zooom, expressed enthusiasm about the relaunch, emphasizing the airline’s dedication to enhancing regional connectivity in India. The airline plans to support the Government’s Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS-UDAN) by launching additional services focused on UDAN routes as part of its service revival.

Gambhir also revealed future plans for Zooom Airlines, including the exploration of new routes and the expansion of the network to include more tier-2 cities. The airline aims to provide a “cost-effective” and “convenient” solution to meet the growing travel needs of passengers in the Indian aviation market.
