VLM back at London City

After an absence of more than nine years, VLM Airlines is to fly again on the route between Antwerp and London City Airport from 30 October. It follows the announcement this month from Cityjet that it will stop operating the route from 27 October.

Antwerp and London have been linked by direct flights since 1993, first by VLM from 1993–2008, with Cityjet taking over after that. 

Antwerp & Ostend-Bruges Airports CEO Marcel Buelens said he was delighted VLM was ensuring the continuity of the route, which was “of great importance because it directly links two of the most important economic centres in Europe”.  

LCY chief commercial officer Richard Hill said: “We welcome the return of VLM to operate this speedy and convenient Antwerp route, the only connection between a UK airport to Belgium’s second largest city. 

VLM will operate three daily services in each direction on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and four on Thursdays and Fridays. There will be two return flights on Sundays. Further details of the winter 2017-18 flying programme are due shortly.
