San Diego travelers will have a new reason to jump for joy on June 20, when Canadian Carrier Zoom Airlines will begin new low-cost flights between San Diego and London.
This additional route follows on Zoom's successful transition into the U.S. market less than a year ago when it started flying between New York City and London. The airline will also add Fort Lauderdale-to-London routes starting May 22.
Zoom may be exactly what the doctor ordered for San Diego and Fort Lauderdale, as both have suffered too long without proper intercontinental attention. Plus, the airline is keeping fares fairly reasonable for the time being. A round trip flight from San Diego to London during the summer starts at about $890 including taxes.
These prices probably won't last, but for now, San Diego and Fort Lauderdale can feel the love of affordable international travel options.
