ZipAir UK Announce Winter Schedule

posted by Alex Letch on 2020-10-11

We are very excited to be announcing our new Winter 20-21 schedule with new fleet types and exciting new destinations.

Fleet Changes
For the winter season we will se a reduction in the number of Boeing 737-700s operating out of the UK. We will be relocating 4 Boeing 737-700s to Northern to operate a Winter Sun programme. They will wear Zip Colours with Northern Airlines titles and will be crewed by UK crew whilst remaining on UK registrations. The aircraft have been removed from the following bases: 1 from Belfast City, 1 from Edinburgh and 2 from Birmingham.

We will also be introducing a new type to the fleet. We will be introducing 3 Boeing 767-300ERs to the London Gatwick operation with the launch of the Winter schedule. The aircraft are a low risk trial on lease from GECAS formerly in operation with a low cost Canadian airline. They will retain their 282 seat cabin configuration (24 Premium 258 Economy) with minor trim tweaks to remove the previous operators red colour scheme. The 24 premium seats will be offered as ZipStretch seats initially. There will be 2 lines of flying for the Boeing 767-300ERs with the third aircraft offered for charter.
