VLM is back into the scheduled airline business. The former CityJet subsidiary (See BTN 3 November 2014) has introduced twice-daily (Monday to Friday) flights to Geneva from its Antwerp headquarters.
The 564km sector to the second most populous city in Switzerland will be operated utilising the airline’s 50-seat Fokker 50s. No other airline connects these two points. Antwerp Airport’s only other year-round scheduled service is to London City Airport, operated by VLM on behalf of CityJet. Flybe’s service from Antwerp to Southend (operated by Stobart Air) launched last September has been terminated.
Commenting on the route launch Arthur White, CEO of VLM, said: “The move back into scheduled services, with these new flights, is a landmark achievement for VLM. We now offer scheduled flights with the same exceptional standards for which we are already well-known in our established ACMI and charter operations.
Unsurprisingly, given that both Antwerp and Geneva are major business centres with international reputations, tickets are already selling fast. We know these services are going to prove very popular.” www.vlm.com
