VLM heads for Aberdeen

Three return flights a week between Antwerp and Scotland are joining the VLM Airlines schedule from 4 June as the airline continues its expansion by adding Aberdeen, Cologne-Bonn Airport and Rostock to its destinations list.

The Aberdeen service will be direct in both directions on Mondays. On Wednesdays and Fridays, it will be operated as a triangle service Antwerp – Aberdeen – Birmingham – Antwerp. Passengers on the Aberdeen – Antwerp service can continue their journeys after a 30min turnaround in Birmingham.

Aberdeen International Airport managing director Carol Benzie said: “The addition of a Belgian destination to our route network is exciting with Antwerp a fantastic destination for both business and leisure travellers.”

For its new German operation, VLM will run five weekly flights from Antwerp to Cologne/Bonn and Rostock every day except Wednesdays and Fridays.

Ticket prices on VLM include a drink and snack and every passenger is entitled to check-in a bag of up to 23kg free. At Antwerp Airport, passengers can check in up to 20min before the scheduled departure time of their flight.

Employing more than 100 aviation professionals, VLM has a fleet of six Fokker 50 turboprops and offers scheduled flights between Antwerp and Birmingham, London City Airport, Munich, Zurich and Maribor.
