Gurugram-based Zooom Airlines, formerly known as Zoom Air, has been granted an air operator certificate (AOC) by India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to restart its operations in the country. The AOC, renewed on September 14, 2023, is valid until September 3, 2024.
The airline, which began operations in February 2017, initially struggled to attract significant passenger traffic. In July 2018, DGCA suspended its AOC due to safety concerns, but it resumed services in October 2019 before being suspended again in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zooom Airlines aims to provide cost-effective and convenient regional travel solutions in India’s growing aviation market. Atul Gambhir, the CEO of the airline, expressed confidence in offering an innovative travel experience to meet customers’ evolving needs. He emphasised the airline’s commitment to safety and operational excellence, ensuring passengers a seamless and comfortable travel experience.
