Zoom operated year-round scheduled services to Europe, and charter services to South America, Caribbean, and Southern United States destinations with Canadian tour operators.

On January 14, 2009, Globe Span Capital announced the acquisition of Zoom Airlines Inc.

A plan was in place to get the new Zoom off the ground in early 2009. The Kingston, Ontario, based financial services company planned to relocate Zoom Airlines finance, human resources and call-centre divisions to Kingston. The operation centre of the airline was to remain in Toronto. On March 25, 2009, a web site was launched for the new airline, XPO Airlines.

The executives at Globe Span had planned to use the Zoom Airlines brand name, but chose to change to a new name. (Source: wikipedia.org).
