Here are the first pictures of the newest Canadian airline Zoom.
The a/c is still wearing French reg but has the Canadian flag by it.
Also, the a/c is named "City of Ottawa"
The paint scheme is not that far off Zips colors.

According to the picture from the link, it's a 767-328. That means the aircraft comes from Air France. I know Air France is getting rid of its 767's but I didn't know where those were going to, now I see where they continue to fly. Yes, it's true, its color scheme is similar to that of the TUI livery.

Their web site was never updated. They will not be flying at all from YHM, YOW and YHZ this summer. They will be flying to England from YEG, YVR and YYZ.
They will be back to YOW for the winter season to southern destinations. I know for a fact that the only southern destination they will not operate will be Orlando. They are looking for another carrier to operate the flights to MCO starting this fall. B-767's will not suit the YOW/YHZ to MCO market. Too many seats.

The Zoom 763 does look eerily similar to Zip - way more so than TUI!
FYI, TUI is actually one of the world's largest, if not the largest, tourism company in the world, owning nearly 3700 travel agencies in Europe. TUI is German-based, I think. It has up to about 88 aircraft and has taken over several European airlines, which explains why Britannia, Hapag-Lloyd Flug and a few others now have that same blue c/s. It's not as well known outside Europe.

Nuno, sorry, I should have been more specific. They do not use the QN ceramic dishes. They use generic aluminum casseroles. Only the dishes (salad, dessert bowls, coffee cups....white and navy funny shaped ones) and meal trays are ex QN.

Ok, that makes more sense. Michel Leblanc probably uses the QN ceramic dishes at home when he has big parties.
I wish Zoom success, but it should be interesting, as Zoom is new on the scene, we also have HMY who are very quiet as of late, Canada West probably still wants to start one day, and Transat and Skyservice are seeing a drop in business. Very interesting times in the Canadian charter market.
