Allbury Travel Group has been appointed by Zoom’s credit card payment service provider to assist passengers of the failed airline.

The operator has agreed to work with the credit card service provider and various airlines to co-ordinate an effort to assist the passengers affected by Zoom’s failure. About 40,000 passengers were affected by the airlines failure.

Allbury Travel Group chief executive Eamonn Ferrin said: “It is always difficult when an airline fails leaving this level of passengers stranded with few alternatives.  We realised there was the potential to help many of these people by seeking to source alternative arrangements through various airline contacts.

“As of today Allbury Travel Group will be contacting the affected passengers via email to advise of the next steps in order to begin assisting passengers as soon as possible.”
