Montréal, Canada-based Bombardier has welcomed Zoom Air, India´s newest airline, to its family of more than 100 CRJ Series aircraft owners and operators with the airline´s recent launch of CRJ200 regional jet service, the company said.

Gurgaon, Haryana-based Zoom Air acquired the aircraft from a third party. The airline will operate from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi and will serve 16 destinations, connecting smaller cities and towns across the country.
