It revived flight services and operated the first flight on Wednesday. After resuming, the first plane took off to Ayodhya from the Delhi airport on Wednesday. Zooom is currently taking passengers to the destination, Ayodhya, on a Bombardier CRJ200ER flight.

Right now, the airline has a fleet of 5 Bombardier CRJ 200ER aircraft. According to a report by Telegraph India, each of these planes has 50 seats. As of now, the domestic airline is operating the Delhi-Ayodhya flight 3 times a week, Atul Gambhir, the Director and CEO of Zooom, shared.

Mr. Gambhir also added how there has been a major rise in domestic air travel passengers in India.

The journey of Zooom began back in 2017. The domestic airline operated its first flight in February 2017. Its journey did not continue for long and came to a stop afterward. It was back in July 2018 when the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) suspended the airline’s air operator certificate. Then, DGCA approved the airline to relaunch its services in August 2023. Finally, the first flight following resumption took off from Delhi on Wednesday and headed to Ayodhya.
